The adventure could suddenly stop for Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United. The Portuguese star is reportedly considering leaving the Premier League giant at the end of the season.
Ronaldo returned to Man United in the summer transfer window, dismissing Premier League champions Man City in favor of a return to their former hunting ground.
However, his return to the Red Devils wasn’t exactly the fairytale he dreamed of, as CR7 had his moments, eight goals in 16 Premier League games is not the kind of comeback he would have. hoped, even if it’s far from catastrophic.
A disastrous start to the season with a 5-0 loss to Liverpool and a 4-1 loss to Watford resulted in the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but very little has changed since.
Although United aren’t humiliated every two weeks as they sometimes were under the club legend, the grass hasn’t necessarily been greener with Ralf Rangnick in charge.
And a surprising number of these rumors and whispers have surrounded Ronaldo claiming that some players are unhappy with his influence on the squad.
As a result, Ronaldo has reportedly opened the door to a Man United summer exit, just a year after returning to the club, according to the Daily Star.
And with the Portugal international not backing interim manager Ralf Rangnick, whether he stays this summer now depends on who the board appoints in the coming months.
The club have been linked with a number of names to take the reins, with Mauricio Pochettino, Erik ten Hag and Brendan Rodgers, all names the board have been looking at in recent weeks, though any potential candidate is much more prompted to undertake the project with Ronaldo engaged in the team.
