According to Duncan Castles’ article in The Times, Cristiano Ronaldo has asked to be allowed to leave Manchester United this summer.
He hopes United will grant him that request if a suitable offer arrives.
The 37-year-old does not want to miss a year of Champions League football after playing in the competition for 19 consecutive years.
He also believes he has three or four more years at the highest level and wants to play for a team that would give him the biggest chance to add to his achievements.
Besides, there are some personal reasons for Ronaldo to leave Manchester after a difficult period for his family.
Bayern Munich and Chelsea have been linked with Ronaldo in the last few days, but neither side has an obvious interest in the forward.
Previously, both Ronaldo and Erik ten Hag expressed the desire to work with each other in the coming season – but the Portuguese feels United should show more ambition in the transfer market.
Could such stories be a way for him to push the club to be more proactive with their signings?
According to the latest reports on Cristiano Ronaldo by top journalist, Fabrizio Romano, he clears;
Cristiano Ronaldo’s not happy with the current situation at Manchester United as of today ￼￼
Cristiano Ronaldo told Man United that he wants to leave the club this summer in case he will receive an important proposal.
The message from Ronaldo to Man Utd is clear: he doesn’t feel the club’s ambition as he wants to fight to win titles immediately.
Manchester United position has not changed as they want Cristiano in the team for next season and consider him not for sale.
Jorge Mendes already explored options in the last weeks by talking with Bayern and Chelsea, but there’s no agreement with any club yet.
Paris Saint-Germain are not in the list of clubs considering Cristiano as an option for this summer, as things stand.
Cristiano has no problem with Erik ten Hag but he would love to see new signings at Man Utd as it’s beginning of July and all the English top clubs have signed big players.
