Following the news we brought you earlier that Ronaldo had said he wants to join Real, we pick up on some quotes from United’s legendary number 7, Eric Cantona.

Having just seen the news confirmed on Sky Sports News, I think it is time to move on, no-one is bigger than the club and Ronaldo’s attitude in recent weeks has been nothing less than selfish.

But, this is no time to be down – indeed I feel a strange sense of excitement with the news of Ronaldo’s probable departure. We still have a team full of world-class stars and I have faith in Fergie and Quieroz that they will bring in another top quality winger.

This is a view shared by ex-red Eric Cantona, who spoke of Ronaldo’s situation:

“United is one of the biggest clubs in the world. They have been winning, are winning and will continue to win things generation after generation. They will always win whoever they have playing for them.”

Here, here Cantona!

Ronaldo expressed a desire to become a legendary number 7 like Best, Cantona and Beckham….but sadly, he never will!
