(Video) David Beckham admits he wants Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Man Utd

Cristiano Ronaldo has been the difference-maker for United when they’ve needed it but unfortunately, the side hasn’t been able to capture that goalscoring touch and use it to their advantage.

Instead, in a season where they were expected to challenge for the league title, United have succumbed to becoming Europa League fodder as they scramble to stay within the lines of European qualification ahead of their final game of the season.

Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in the league and 24 goals overall – a fantastic return considering the dysfunctional team he is spearheading.

Manchester United and England icon David Beckham has now delivered his verdict on the Portuguese superstar, admitting that he would like to see the forward stick around, arguing it’s ‘important for the fans’.

“Obviously, Cristiano is one of the best players over the last 15 years with Leo (Messi),” Beckham told Sky Sports, as seen above.

“To see him stay on, hopefully staying on at United, is important for the fans, is important to him. We all know how much Man United means to him. He’s still doing what he does best, scoring goals and creating.

“That’s what Cristiano does. Even at this age, to be doing what he’s doing is really incredible. Hopefully, it continues and hopefully, he stays for another year or two.”
