Scolari tells Ronaldo: Quit Man Utd

Big Phil told The Sun: “The basic education stage of his career is ending and I know Cristiano is ready for a change of atmosphere.

“Barcelona would hugely enjoy having Cristiano in their team because he would complement Ronaldinho perfectly – they have different characteristics.

“For Cristiano, the Barcelona climate would be important – most days are sunny and it’s hardly ever cold like England.

“That gives a player all the motivation he needs to train and play.”
