Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly going to hold crisis talks with Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag. He is concerned by the lack of transfer activity and wants to leave the club this summer.
MANCHESTER UNITED AND CRISTIANO RONALDO CONTRACT SITUATION
The Portuguese international was the highest goalscorer in the last season after returning to Old Trafford last summer. It was with the intention to challenge for titles throughout the season. However, in reality, something else happened. The club sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjær mid-season. They also chose not to improve their team in the January transfer window. Ultimately, the decision to not improve the team came to bite them back.
Manchester United could not qualify for the Champions League. They had to settle for a place in the Europa League. The club even suffered some shock defeats on the road. The failure to qualify has now seen Ronaldo ask the club to let him leave this summer transfer window. Despite, the desire to leave the club, United is not prepared to sell the forward.
MANY CLUBS ARE INTERESTED IN SIGNING THE PORTUGUESE FORWARD
According to reports, the forward is going to hold crisis talks with Ten Hag. He is going to return to pre-season training next week. Although, United wants to keep the forward. However, the report suggests that Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Napoli are interested in the striker’s signature. The report also states Chelsea are leading the race for the striker’s signature.
Some reports also suggest the striker might stay at United if a suitable offer does not arrive. However, the chances of that happening are very less due to interest in the player. All the clubs interested in him are offering him Champions League football which matches his ambition. The player would like to compete at the top for a number of years.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored 24 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions. He sometimes single-handedly helped the club win matches last season. Ronaldo’s contract at Man United is set to expire next summer.
