Allardyce tells Ronaldo: Stay with Man Utd

He said: “Ronaldo is a player who Manchester United can’t afford to lose, it’s that simple. Whatever it takes to keep him, they have to do it – in the hope that Ronaldo wants to stay here, because that’s the key.

“Real Madrid are not the club for him at this moment, Manchester United are. There’s no development at Real, they are in decline – this team are young, developing again and in line to win three competitions.”
