  • Vincent Kompany has claimed that he won't sign Cristiano Ronaldo at his club Burnely after he was released from Manchester United
  • Ronaldo is now a free agent after his contract at Old Trafford was terminated by mutual consent
  • He will be looking for a new destination in January and Kompany, a former Manchester City player has aimed a subtle dig at his gameplay

Former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has waded into the Cristiano Ronaldo debate by savagely mocking the now former Manchester United star.

Ronaldo was released from his contract on November 22nd after his differences with the club became untenable. The striker had launched a series of scathing attacks on the club.

With the ripping up of the contract taking effect immediately, Ronaldo is technically a free agent now. No clubs have shown genuine interest yet in the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Appearing on BBC, Kompany, who is now Burnley's manager, was asked if he could have the Portuguese star in his team and he flatly refused.

The four-time Premier League winner insisted that he needs players that can run, insinuating that Ronaldo's good days are behind him. The 37-year-old has been accused of contributing little to a team's gameplay.

Ronaldo will first focus on the World Cup in Qatar before looking for a new club. He can definitely rule out Burnley as a potential destination.

Burnley are currently on top of the Championship table with 41 points as they seek to secure top-flight status only a season after they dropped.

Ronaldo responds to Man United's decision

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has broken his silence following Manchester United's decision to terminate his Old Trafford contract.

United ripped apart Ronaldo's lucrative contract just days after his explosive interview with British journalist Piers Morgan.

The Portuguese star was in the final months of his deal with the Red Devils, having rejoined them in the summer of 2021 on a two-year deal.

Ronaldo to Chelsea?

A section of Chelsea fans has urged Cristiano Ronaldo to consider moving to Stamford Bridge ahead of his Man United exit. The veteran forward is due to leave Old Trafford after the Red Devils terminated his contract early.

United ripped apart Ronaldo's deal with seven months left on it just days after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

While it still remains to be seen where Ronaldo will move next, some Chelsea fans have taken the earliest opportunity to beg the forward to join them.
