Paul Merson believes Manchester United would struggle to replace Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals should the Portuguese star decide to leave Old Trafford this summer.

In his latest Sky Sports column, Paul Merson delivers his verdict on Chelsea potentially signing Cristiano Ronaldo and how Raheem Sterling moving to Stamford Bridge would impact Manchester City.

I think he might be tempted to leave as it goes – the way it’s going on at the moment. We’re hearing that he wants to play in the Champions League so I think that might happen. I think it will be a win-win situation if he does go. I think it needs to get sorted sooner than later – the season’s like four or five weeks away.
