The uncertainty around Cristiano Ronaldo’s future has continued to dominate the news, and on Saturday it took yet another turn.
According to reports, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has requested permission to quit United should the team get an acceptable offer.
The Reds could probably do without this ongoing issue this summer, especially as the team enters a new era under Erik ten Hag. Old Trafford’s planned massive reconstruction is in danger of devolving into a protracted negotiation for Ronaldo’s skills.
The Red Devils could be ready to lose one of their most crucial attackers as a result of the rumor that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave the team. The international player from Portugal is disappointed that he won’t be playing in the Champions League in the coming summer of 2022 – 2023.
In light of United’s inability to make the league playoffs and Ten Hag’s sluggishness in the summer transfer window, Ronaldo is starting to question the club’s commitment as preseason kicks off.
Clubs in Europe are keeping an eye on the situation, so Erik ten Hag’s team will have to fight to persuade the Portuguese to play at least one more season at Old Trafford. When Cristiano Ronaldo rejoins the first team for practice, Erik ten Hag will speak with the fugitive player.
Ten Hag has been speaking with every United player as he welcomes them back to practice. He is eager to talk to Ronaldo in order to understand his annoyance, especially given that they are scheduled to leave on Friday for their preseason tour of Asia and Australia.
This summer, Chelsea has been tabbed as the favorite among all interested clubs to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United. Ronaldo’s desire to play in the Champions League could spur new owner Todd Boehly into action following a dual signing setback.
When it was made public that Boehly and super-agent Jorge Mendes had recently met in Portugal to discuss a handful of his clients, including CR7, rumors about the 37-year-future old’s began to circulate.
