And he answered loudly: “You would say no in an instant.

“But I think if you look to the future of the club you would have to go with younger, hungry players to do their best to lift Manchester United over the next two, three years.”

But Saha, who spent a season with Ronaldo at Old Trafford in 2008, believes the team should be built AROUND the 37-year-old, not without him.

Regarding Rooney’s comments, the Frenchman told BoyleSports EPL: “I don’t understand. I’m a little surprised.

“Targeting Cristiano Ronaldo and saying we have to move on is wrong.

“Why don’t we build young players around Cristiano? Let them learn and improve around him.”

“If these players can’t improve and grow, they’re not good enough.

“I don’t agree at all and I think Cristiano made a tremendous sacrifice but he did well under criticism.

“The team didn’t play well and I don’t like it when Cristiano is targeted.”

Following Rooney’s comments, Ronaldo seemed to hit back at his former teammate.

In response to Rooney sharing a photo of MNF on Instagram, Ronaldo commented “Two jealous” next to an eye emoji.

It’s possible CR7’s comment was tongue-in-cheek and simply poking fun at his friend.

Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in 32 games for United in all competitions.

In his last Premier League appearance, the Portuguese scored a hat-trick in a 3-2 home win over Tottenham.
