Ancient Manchester United striker Dion Dublin sees no reason for Cristiano Ronaldo to choose to stay at the club this summer.

Ronaldo has been United’s shining light during a soft end to the season, scoring nine of his side’s last 13 goals after scoring 24 in all competitions since returning to Manchester last summer.

The Portuguese still has 12 months left on his contract at Old Trafford, but with the club set to miss out on Champions League qualification, his future remains uncertain.

New manager Erik ten Hag has reportedly contacted the 37-year-old to tell the veteran he will be part of his plans going forward.

While he thinks his former team will be ‘lost’ without Ronaldo, Dublin believes his talisman will look elsewhere.

“I don’t know where Ronaldo goes from here,” Dublin told Sky Sports.

“Is he going back to Italy or Spain, I don’t know where he is going. I find it hard to see him staying at United unless something is done incredibly quickly.

“Besides, I don’t know where he’s going. I think United will be lost without him so hopefully he will be [staying at] United without a doubt.

“But I don’t know why he would stay to be honest with you.

“Unless the new manager says £300m these players are coming, please stay.” Otherwise, I think he’s gone.
