Cristiano Ronaldo is “only thinking about himself” and is “unrealistic” with his expectations of Manchester United.

That’s according to former Manchester United striker Luis Saa, who was Ronaldo’s teammate for five years at Old Trafford.

The 37-year-old stunned Erik ten Hag and the United board by asking to leave the club last month, and he reiterated his desire to do so when he returned to training last Tuesday, having missed the club preseason tour

Ronaldo returned to United last summer for £12m, signing an initial two-year contract with the club, with the Red Devils having the option to extend his contract for a further 12 months.

But he was asked to leave less than a year after his return after the club failed to qualify for the Champions League.

And speaking to SkyBet, Saha criticized Ronaldo’s decision and said the Portugal captain was naive to move to Old Trafford.

“Somehow, from Cristiano Ronaldo“From his point of view, it’s a bit unrealistic to ask a club of this size to adapt to him and his dream,” Saha said.

“Even last year, I’m sorry, magic could have happened and things could have gone well and they won League of champions and the Premier League and here we are, he can say he can stay because he was involved in it. It was unreal that his arrival alone would change all this.

“Asking about it again after a bad season and maybe not very good business in the transfer market, in his opinion, I really don’t understand how dramatic the change is and doing all these things. I think he was in last year Juventus but they didn’t win the Champions League.

“I’m not Cristiano, but as someone who seems to be a fan Manchester UnitedI felt like he didn’t show that enough, he thinks about himself.

“I’m not going to judge him because he’s a great player and I’m not in his position, but I’d like him to stay because he’s a great player. No one can judge his actions at this point because it’s his own career.”
