Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp says his old club is celebrating after Manchester United chose to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid yesterday.

In his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp wrote: "I spoke to Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher on Thursday. Like the players at Chelsea and Arsenal, Carragher and his Anfield team-mates are celebrating over the dramatic news from Old Trafford.

"No more chief tormentor to worry about, at least not in the Barclays Premier League.

"Barcelona might have won the European Cup, but Real Madrid have won themselves the best player in the world.

"All eyes will be on Spain come the Champions League draw, but Manchester United’s domestic rivals will be wishing their summer away. No Cristiano Ronaldo means a lot more hope back home."
