EPL: Chelsea legend makes honest verdict on Ronaldo’s move to Stamford Bridge

Former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino has warned Manchester United that they will regret allowing Cristiano Ronaldo move to Stamford Bridge.

Ronaldo will again push to leave Manchester United in January, having been reduced to a bench role at Old Trafford.

The 37-year-old striker is visibly unhappy with the way things are turning out at Old Trafford and refused to come on during Manchester United’s Premier League victory over Tottenham and left the stadium early.

Erik ten Hag handed him a punishment by dropping the football icon for their weekend clash against Chelsea.

And reports in Europe say Chelsea are preparing for a sensational January move for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Asked if he expects Chelsea to sign Ronaldo, Cascarino told talkSPORT: “Not really.

“It’s an interesting one because I don’t think United will be prepared to let Ronaldo go. It could cost them Champions League football if they didn’t make the top-four and Ronaldo went to Chelsea.

“From that point of view, it would be a difficult one to understand.

“Also, Chelsea need legs in the centre forward position, they need someone who’s a real, determined runner, who gets into positions and is quick.

“I would be amazed if that happened, if Ronaldo ended up at Stamford Bridge. I don’t see Manchester United wanting to do that, it would be cutting your nose to spite your face, it really would.

“If you let him go there and Chelsea finish above you, it would be a really bad look for United.”
