Manchester United have been urged to sell Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of the season.
Despite the forward being the Red Devils’ highest goalscorer of the 2021/22 campaign so far, having struck 14 times in 21 games, many believe his arrival has had adverse effects on certain players.
This week, it was suggested the likes of Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood have grown frustrated by his seemingly "undroppable status" in the side, with ex-Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor feeling he should be let go when the season concludes.
"Ronaldo looks like he’s using a yard of pace every time he plays," he told Football Insider.
"Ronaldo and Cavani, two up front doesn’t work every game because you need one of those players to drop into midfield and get the ball. That’s where they missed Fernandes.
"You’ve seen the difference in Fernandes since Ronaldo has come in. Before Ronaldo came in, Fernandes was the main man. Now Ronaldo’s the main man.
Below is where Ronaldo ranks among the highest-paid players at United this season:
"Ronaldo was captain against Wolves. Before Ronaldo came it was Fernandes who was captain when Harry Maguire was out and now he’s on the bench.
"There’s going to be tension there. If you look at the whole situation, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will know he made a mistake by bringing Ronaldo in, simple as that.
"Yes, Ronaldo has scored but he’s scored goals that Greenwood would have scored, Rashford would have scored in that position.
"For me, I would let Ronaldo go in the summer. Let Greenwood, Sancho and Rashford play together."
