Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has backed Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo to join Premier League giants, Chelsea, this summer.
Merson believes it would be a win-win situation if Ronaldo joins Chelsea from Manchester United.
Ronaldo had already informed Man United that he wanted to leave the club if they found a suitable offer.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been linked with Chelsea, Bayern Munich, AS Roma and Napoli in the past.
I think he might be tempted to leave as it goes – the way it is going at the moment,” Merson wrote in his Sky column.
“We are hearing that he wants to play in the Champions League, so I think that might happen.
I think it will be a win-win situation if he does go [to Chelsea]. I think it needs to get sorted sooner than later – the season’s like four or five weeks away.
It’s been clear Man Utd won’t be in the Champions League for a long time. I don’t know why this wasn’t nipped in the bud early doors.
“It’s hard to drag on this long. I’d be a bit disappointed if I was a Man Utd fan.”
