Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has told the club to sell lost striker Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid have all rejected the chance to sign Ronaldo,

who could feature in United's Premier League opener against Brighton this afternoon. 'I think United should let Cristiano Ronaldo go,

“If the reports are true that Cristiano wants to leave the club, then United should allow him to go and get a back nine

nine that will be there for the next three or four years and really help them build a team that can be successful.
