Manchester United legend Gary Neville has advised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer window.
The Red devils are believed to be monitoring the Portuguese forward’s situation at Juventus, with Ronaldo reportedly unhappy with the project he’s been sold in Turin.
Juventus narrowly qualified for the UEFA Champions League on the last day of the Serie A on Sunday when Napoli failed to get a win over Verona at home.
Nevertheless, Ronaldo is doubtful that Andrea Pirlo’s team can win the Italian league next campaign and feels they are still years away from competing for the European competition.
That has seen Ronaldo linked with a sensational return to United and Solskjaer has conceded he’s still in contact with his former team-mate, who he consulted over the signing of Bruno Fernandes.
Ronaldo has one year remaining on his deal in Turin and the Italian club would be keen to cash in on the Portugal international.
But Neville believes United would be wrong to re-sign Ronaldo and should not risk tainting his legacy at Old Trafford.
Replying on a Twitter Q&A, Neville was asked if the club should re-sign Ronaldo. The former Valencia manager replied: ‘Love him but think it’s better to leave the memories where they are’.
United are focused on signing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and have an interest in Harry Kane, who has intimated he wants to leave Tottenham.
Kane would cost more than £150m and is therefore not the club’s priority but they will rival Manchester City and Chelsea for his signature should Spurs show a willingness to sell.
Solskjaer would also like to sign a central defender and a central midfielder, with Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane and West Ham’s Declan Rice the main targets.
