“The Portuguese star’s return has made the Man United dressing room situation ‘hot’”

1NEWS – Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood has named three Manchester United players that the Red Devils management had to let go after Cristiano Ronaldo was officially brought back to Old Trafford.

United shocked the world last Friday (27/8/2021) by announcing that they had reached an agreement to re-sign Legend club, Ronaldo from Juventus in a blockbuster transfer.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was initially linked with joining Premier League champions Manchester City.

However, The Citizens withdrew from negotiations and United completed the acquisition of Ronaldo for an initial fee of £12.8 million, which could rise to £19.4 million.

According to British media reports, the 36-year-old Portuguese superstar successfully underwent a medical for United in Lisbon last weekend.

Sherwood is now adamant that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should sell “some of their players” ahead of Ronaldo’s return to the city of Manchester.

And the 52-year-old former Portsmouth player named several United forwards, such as Jesse Lingard, Daniel James and Anthony Martial, as a trio that should be the club’s top priority in terms of player sales.

Sherwood himself told the Premier League Productions program: “I think some players should leave. They need to include 25 players, some are not in the squad.”

“Jesse Lingard is out, I think he should go and play for West Ham. He had a great time there last year, he looked like he wanted to go and play football and he was amazing. I think it’s time to leave the club.”

“I think Daniel James might leave too. Leeds chased him and he played well against them in the first game of the season. It was good practice for him. He has incredible speed and candor. I think he’s going to be another one (who left).”

“For me, Anthony Martial will move on. If they had a home for Martial and they could get the right money, I think they would shake hands and say it never worked.”
