Former Liverpool striker, Dean Saunders has informed Manchester United that their wantaway forward, Cristiano Ronaldo owes the club nothing.
Saunders believes Ronaldo can do whatever he wants at this stage of his career because he has done a lot in the beautiful game.
Ronaldo, who is in the final year of his contract at Man United, is desperate to leave Old Trafford after they failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions last season.
The Portugal captain is currently on leave from the Red Devils’ pre-season tour due to ‘family reasons.’
His agent, Jorge Mendes, has been talking to several clubs in a bid to secure his client a departure from Man United.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has recently been linked with Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain in the ongoing transfer window.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Saunders said that the 37-year-old winner is free to decide his future.
Saunders said, “He (Alex Crook) said, ‘Do you think Ronaldo owes Manchester United because we started his career off?’ And I said no, he has done so much in the game that he owes nobody nothing. Neither does (Lionel) Messi.”
“I don’t think he owes anybody any loyalty. He has just given us so much pleasure over the years, and he has achieved so much in his career. He can do whatever he wants.”
