Eric Cantona reckons Cristiano Ronaldo would be “bloody stupid” to quit Manchester United and join Real Madrid.
The Old Trafford legend says the winger’s style is perfectly suited to Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
Cantona, who spent six glorious seasons with United before retiring in 1997, said: “He is still young, and so maybe he wants to take on fresh challenges. I can understand if this is the reason why he wants to leave for Real.
“But if he were to leave because of something else, he would be doing something absolutely bloody stupid.”
The Frenchman, 42, also declared his aim to become United’s manager one day.
He said: “It would be a huge honour for me to become Manchester United’s coach – it would be marvellous.”
