MANCHESTER UNITED made the right decision to terminate Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract as it ‘fits both sides’.
So says Liverpool hero Danny Murphy, who admits it’s a “shame” that Ronaldo’s second spell at Old Trafford ended so sadly.
United tore up the star striker’s £500,000 deal after his recent bombshell interview in which he slammed the club from top to bottom.
But Murphy claims the five-time Ballon d’Or winner can now find a new challenge that will allow him to continue playing regularly while the Red Devils can move on.
The 37-year-old’s next destination is unknown as he is currently focused on Portugal and the World Cup but Chelsea have been linked with an offer.
However, Murphy insists the Blues should stay away from it as they would inherit the same problems as United.
The former midfielder claims Ronaldo would not fit in with Chelsea manager Graham Potter’s philosophy as he likes to rotate and therefore would not use him regularly.
Speak with Mr. PingMurphy said, “It’s a shame it ended like this. We’re talking about one of the greatest players that ever lived, a guy who inspired children and footballers around the world by showing what he can achieve through hard work mixed with talent.
“He did remarkable things in the game and I don’t like the fact that he’s leaving a club he had such an affinity for in a negative way.
“Hopefully over time he will be remembered for all the good things he did there and I think that will be the case. It’s a shame for both him and the club. I think that it’s a decision that suits both of them.” Sometimes things do end, and when things end because of a glitch, it’s very rare that they end well.
“I think it’s the right decision. He needs a new challenge and wants to end his last year or two in the game by playing regularly. good luck to him In an ideal world, these things wouldn’t happen and would be dealt with after closed doors.
“I think with time it will wear off. I don’t think it will be forgotten but his achievements, goals and triumphs will be remembered as the supreme memory, not this incident.
“Now for United they can go forward and finish this. They can focus on improving their young players and winning some new ones.”

“In terms of a move to Chelsea, I can’t see it. I think Graham Potter would inherit the same problems if he didn’t play him every week and Graham Potter likes to rotate.
“In fact, he’s a manager who never plays the same team every week. I don’t think Ronaldo would bother too much with his rotation policy. I really can’t imagine it. I would be amazed if it were. “
