(HD Video) Cristiano Ronaldo Rare Free style Skills
Ronaldo, 37, wishes to depart the club this summer after they failed to qualify for the Champions League last term. The club remain adamant that he will remain beyond this summer.
Speaking to The Mirror, Ferdinand, a former teammate of the Portuguese, said that his future must be sorted out one way or another so as to avoid a ‘hangover’ for the club heading into the new season.
He said: ‘As players, you just want the situation ironed out and sorted out immediately. You don’t want it lingering on and dragging on, I think Harry Kane had that with Spurs last year.’
He added: ‘But I think the reasons are different. Cristiano, there’s been issues behind-the-scenes with his family and health and stuff like that. You have to take that into consideration.
‘But if the reports are true – that he’s looking to move and what not – then you kind of want the club to nail that down so there isn’t a hangover going into the season.
