While speaking to the Metro Sport, Paul Merson said: “You just don’t know what you’re going to get with Manchester United. I don’t see them finishing in the top 4.
“They are a long way off now and if they somehow manage it, it’ll be a great season for them. In terms of their team, I strongly believe Cristiano Ronaldo should be left out of the team.
“It won’t happen, but Edinson Cavani should take his place upfront with the likes of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood in contention to play on the wings.
“Something is just not right there. I think there is a lot going on behind the scenes and it doesn’t look good for them.”
Man United’s inconsistent run of form continued with a shocking 1–0 defeat against Wolves in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Monday.
Ronaldo, who was handed the captain’s armband in Harry Maguire’s absence, cut a frustrated figure on the pitch and had a goal ruled out for offside.
