Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer.
The 37-year-old wants to leave Old Trafford and has failed to turn up on the second-day of pre-season training with the Red Devils.
According to reports, Chelsea are the frontrunners in securing the former Real Madrid star.
Arsenal legend Paul Merson claims Stamford Bridge is a right move for the Portuguese star.
“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.
“It’s a bit disappointing in the way that you hear the news that he wants to play in the Champions League. It’s been clear Man Utd won’t be in the Champions League for a long time.
“I don’t know why this wasn’t nipped in the bud early doors. It’s had to drag on this long. I’d be a bit disappointed if I was a Man Utd fan.”
