Recently, Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo transfer decision shows he is more likely going to depart this summer and the club is currently scouting for new striker in the market.
However, the move of the 37-year-old has just been backed by Real Madrid legend, Guti who thinks that he can do better outside the English Premier League.

The Portugal captain has been linked with Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is said to have already offered the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to Atletico Madrid.
But Guti believes this would be a great move for both parties as they will complement each other.
He told DAZN: “If in this case, he decides to come to Atletico Madrid, why not? It’s a great team, he is a great striker. Atletico Madrid needs a good striker and why not? I think it would be a good pairing.”
Guti added, “It would be strange, because Madrid loves him so much because he’s a very loved player. I think that the Real Madrid fans wouldn’t mind. I think that everything Cristiano had to give to Real Madrid, he already gave. If he feels happy being able to play in a great team like Atletico and in the Spanish league, which I think he wants, why not?”
