Former Manchester United star David Beckham wants Manchester United forward  Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Old Trafford beyond this summer.

The Portuguese is under contract with the Red Devils till 2023, but there are speculations that he could leave the club again after Manchester United’s failure to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Despite scoring 24 goals for Manchester United this season in all competitions, Manchester United will finish 6th in the Premier League this season.

Beckham has hailed Ronaldo as one of the best players over the last 15 years and wants the Portugal captain to remain at Manchester United next season.

Speaking about Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United, Beckham told Sky Sports: “Obviously Cristiano is one of the best players over the last 15 years, with Leo [Messi]. To see him stay on, hopefully at United, is important for the fans.

“It’s important to him – we all know how much Man United means to him. He’s still doing what he does best, scoring goals. That’s what Cristiano does.

“To be doing what he’s doing at his age is really incredible, so hopefully it continues for another year or two.”
