How Ronaldo Was Treated And What He Said To Teammates, As Atletico Madrid Fans Sends Him A Clear Message.
Cristiano Ronaldo, a star for Manchester United, resumed training on Tuesday for the first time since he expressed a desire to leave Old Trafford.
When Ronaldo asked United to let him leave if a good offer came through last month, the club was completely taken aback.
United will play in the Europa League rather than the Champions League in the following season as a result of the decision, which was made after a miserable 21/22 campaign that saw them finish sixth in the Premier League.
Ronaldo made it obvious that he sees his future outside from Old Trafford as a result of their inability to qualify for Europe’s top championship. The 37-year-old wants to compete for the highest awards, but he believes that United are now unable of doing so.
Due to family obligations, the club’s preseason tour of Thailand and Australia was missed by the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who has since returned to the UK.
When Ronaldo returned to the team’s Carrington training facility, his teammates greeted him with open arms, according to the Spanish news site AS.
Tuesday morning, Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes were spotted arriving. The two reportedly spoke with manager Erik ten Hag. The purpose of the meeting was to talk about the club’s initiative and the new manager’s goal of restoring Old Trafford to its former grandeur.
The Portuguese reportedly interrupted a chat between his Brazilian and Portuguese teammates by telling them, “Okay, that’s it, enough. Training has to begin. Let’s leave.
For lunch following practice, Ronaldo sat down with his teammates, and the mood was characterized as “excellent,” which is good news for United supporters.
Despite his desire to go, it is obvious that Ronaldo will always act professionally on the practice field.
However, his wish might not come true for much longer because his options are steadily dwindling. Numerous elite clubs around the continent have withdrawn from the competition to sign Ronaldo.
Chelsea, Napoli, Juventus, Atletico Madrid, and Bayern Munich are just a few clubs who have ruled out signing the Portuguese player.
Ronaldo might have to remain with United and compete in the Europa League.
Teddy Sheringham, a former United player, believes the team ought to try to sell the 37-year-old.
“I kind of saw it coming,” he admitted to Sportsmail. “People are asking whether Ten Hag should build his team around Ronaldo, but if he wants to go, he goes. That gives United access to an entirely new area.
With that kind of pay, “you could bring in two or three players, and that is a lot of money they could spend each month.”
Now that the new season is rapidly approaching, all eyes will be firmly set on Ronaldo’s every action while his future remains uncertain.
