    Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Manchester United would go into meltdown if they ever sold Wayne Rooney.

    In his column for The Sun, Wright wrote: "His red-hot form for Manchester United has fuelled more talk he could soon be set for a multi-million pound reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.

    "With all the financial goings-on at Old Trafford, I could see Rooney running out at the Bernabeu in a white shirt next season - especially if he has a good World Cup.

    "Indeed, I would be very surprised if former Red Devils idol Ronaldo, who left United for Madrid for a world-record £80million last summer, is NOT badgering his new club's head coach Manuel Pellegrini and president Florentino Perez on a daily basis, telling them to splash the cash to nab his old pal.

    "But despite their confusing cash situation, from a football point of view United cannot afford to sell Rooney. Losing one superstar in a year is a big problem, but losing two would be catastrophic.

    "Ronaldo's departure, albeit inevitable because of his boyhood ambitions, was devastating enough.

    "Selling Rooney, though, would be football suicide."
