EPL: Because of Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United, according to Cascarino
Tony Cascarino, a former Chelsea player, has asserted that Lionel Messi of Paris-Saint-Germain is the reason Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United.
Ronaldo is concerned that Messi may surpass him as the most prolific UEFA Champions League goal scorer, according to Cascarino.
He claims that Ronaldo wants to participate in the UEFA Champions League in order to become the competition’s all-time leading scorer.
Ronaldo allegedly advised Manchester United on Saturday to take into account his exit from the team if they get a good offer.
“Ronaldo is a player with an ego, as he always has been. The teams he has played on have been successful, so you always go with that as a team player even though a lot of it is about him. Good job, he scores goals!
“When you lose, suddenly you have a problem,” he continued. I told you off-air that I am a little dubious of him since he has 141 Champions League goals.
Messi possesses 125. Since Ronaldo is made to be the greatest Champions League goalscorer of all time, he does not want to forego playing Champions League football.
If he continues at Man United, Ronaldo would miss the UEFA Champions League for the first time in 20 years.
Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain have all been mentioned in connection with the former Real Madrid star.
