Manchester United makes new decision on Cristiano Ronaldo’s future after two premier league defeats.
As a result of Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, missing Erik ten Hag’s first preseason tour and requesting to leave Manchester United in July, his future at the club has dominated news stories this summer.
The club has insisted throughout the summer that Ronaldo is not for sale, despite rumors regarding his future.
After a terrible start to the season in which Ronaldo played key roles in losses to Brighton and Brentford, it is now being claimed that United has softened its stance and may be willing to let him go.
According to the BBC, United may now let Ronaldo to depart because of worries over how his attitude is impacting the team’s morale at Carrington.
Senior club officials have reportedly been “alarmed” by the quick spread of criticism following their fruitful trip of Thailand and Australia, where Ten Hag’s team won three of four games and played brave attacking football.
After that, United lost both of their final preseason friendly, and as of next week’s match against Liverpool, they are currently last in the Premier League.
The article asserts that Ronaldo lacks communication with his teammates and is seen negatively at the club. Furthermore, sources openly acknowledged their worry that, barring the forward’s departure this summer, not much will change.
The decision United made earlier this summer to hold onto their leading scorer was understandable since they did not want to add another position to the transfer department’s list of positions to strengthen.
The detrimental effects of Ronaldo’s presence have been made clear by the start of the season, and they are correct to grant his request to depart, but the U-turn should have happened sooner.
Ronaldo has served as a representation of United’s shortcomings, but there is still another problem: the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has received no firm bids. All sides might be content with a departure by consensus.
