Manchester United legend Eric Cantona admits he does not know why Cristiano Ronaldo would want to leave the European champions, claiming the club is "perfect" for him.

The winger has lit up Old Trafford with his performances in the last couple of seasons and is worshipped by the fans at a level reminiscent of the adoration enjoyed by Cantona in the 1990s, but the Portugal international has repeatedly hinted at a "dream" move to Real Madrid this summer.

"I do not know his personality," Cantona said in an interview with Sport magazine. "I do not know why he would want to do this. It can be good reasons. If he says that he needs a new challenge, then maybe, yes, he is young. But if he goes not for that reason - for other reasons - then I think he is wrong."
