Cristiano Ronaldo

Everything is pretty simple. Ronaldo certainly has a strong emotional connection to United – this is his second spell at the club. He previously played for the club from 2003 to 2009, winning the Premier League three times and the Champions League once. However, if he does stay, then the upcoming season will be the first in his career when his team does not play in the Champions League. This is a problem for the player, given that he has won this tournament 5 times and is desperate to do it again. And last season, United did not fight for any trophies. At 37, Ronaldo realizes he only has a few top-level seasons left and is said to be desperate to win as many awards as possible before retiring. As The Athletic reported last weekend, Ronaldo is keen to see United live up to his ambitions by strengthening the squad. The club is still working in this direction. United are close to signing Tyrell Malaysia, wanting Frenkie de Jong and are vying for Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.

United want to sell him?

No. United’s decision – Ronaldo is not for sale. He has one more season left on his contract. New team manager Erik ten Hag spoke warmly of working with Ronaldo, who said of the coach that he was “happy and excited” by the Dutchman’s appointment. “I know that [Ten Hag] has done a fantastic job at Ajax and that he is an experienced coach, but we need to give him time. Everything has to change the way he wants,” said Ronaldo in a recent interview.

Will Ronaldo still be attractive to other clubs?

Definitely. Yes, Ronaldo has become less hardy than in the prime of his career, but his performance in the penalty area has not decreased. He was United’s top scorer last season with 24 goals in 38 games played. Even at 37, he was the third top scorer in the Premier League with 18 goals. His performance in recent seasons has not fallen. He scored 28, 37 and 36 goals in three seasons with Juventus. Ronaldo also largely avoided serious injury. According to Transfermarkt, he has missed just 19 days in the last two seasons due to physical injuries.

Who is interested in Ronaldo?

Last month, Chelsea co-owner Todd Bowley met with Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo’s agent. The possibility of Ronaldo moving to Chelsea was one of the topics that were discussed between the parties. It is not clear at this stage if Chelsea would be willing to take advantage of this opportunity. Chesley allowed Romel Lukaku to return to Inter on a one-year loan. The possibility of signing Ronaldo has also been discussed with Bayern, who are at risk of losing Robert Lewandowski this summer due to the player’s desire to move to Barcelona. Also, the Italian “Napoli” is showing interest in Ronaldo.

Will his departure be a problem for United?

Yes, sure. As The Athletic correspondent Laurie Whitwell, who covers Manchester United, wrote: “New manager Erik ten Hag was preparing for Cristiano Ronaldo in the team and emphasized this point during his presentation.” Thus, Ronaldo’s desire to leave creates confusion in the team, especially since United have not yet announced new transfers. “Attacking players are lower on the transfer list, which means Ten Hag needs to get creative and fill in the gap in the center-forward position.” “His possible departure could help the progress of Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho. However, United are at risk of being left without a striker, and opportunities in the transfer market are limited. The two targets that the club considered, in the form of Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez, have already joined the opposition.”
