The Red Devils were said to have been ‘furious’ after Ronaldo’s attack of the club caught them by surprise, with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner claiming that he felt betrayed. United reportedly sought legal advice and he was subsequently allowed to leave as a free agent.
Naturally, a handful of the world’s richest clubs were linked with signing Ronaldo. And, according to the Daily Mail, Tottenham contemplated bringing the Portugal international to north London before eventually deciding against a move.
As quoted by the Evening Standard, Tony Cascarino claimed that the Burnley boss would be the ‘best fit’. The former Chelsea star said: “In the past Tottenham have just made an obvious choice,
picking managers with the best CVs, but it’s time for them to be brave, especially as Harry Kane may well depart, which would create a completely new dynamic at the club.
“I think Vincent Kompany would be an excellent appointment after his miraculous feats at Burnley this season. He’s had little money but transformed them, adopting a new playing style.”
