Cristiano Ronaldo seems keen on forcing a move away from Manchester United this summer, and the 37-year-old wouldn’t mind a move to Chelsea, reports have claimed.

Ronaldo has reportedly told his agent Jorge Mendes to find him a new club.

Ronaldo wants to play in the Champions League next season, and with Manchester United set to play Europa League football, the Portugal legend isn’t keen on that.

Ronaldo’s former teammate, Rio Ferdinand, has explained why the Portugal international is so keen on leaving Old Trafford after just one season, even though it’s a move to Chelsea.

Ferdinand said on his FIVE YouTube Channel: “You’re talking about Cristiano Ronaldo here!

“I don’t understand how it’s a big story that Cristiano Ronaldo is not happy with the way things are at Man United. He can’t be. I wouldn’t be.

“Anyone who wants to win football matches or trophies, anyone who is used to winning and competing every year at the top of the table for the biggest prizes, and then all of a sudden isn’t – and doesn’t even qualify for the Champions League – you can’t sit here and expect them to be happy.

“He’s not happy with missing out on the Champions League.

“He doesn’t even know what the Europa League soundtrack sounds like! 

“When that comes on, he’s going to be thinking ‘what dance am I in here?’”
