The time Cristiano Ronaldo spent with Manchester United seems to be quickly coming to an end. After Ronaldo declined to enter the game as a substitute in the team’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham on Wednesday, United stepped up their efforts to get rid of him. And it appears that the club will take any necessary measures to get rid of Ronaldo.
Ronaldo may be their only remaining option today, even if United initially didn’t seem interested in allowing him leave on the open market. Since this past summer, the club has been willing to let Ronaldo leave for free, but they haven’t seen any kind of interest that would have made a trade possible. Due to this, the Premier League powerhouse is in a difficult situation when it comes to managing the famous Portuguese striker.
Ronaldo made it obvious in the summer that he wanted to leave the club, and sources have told ESPN that the United administration, overseen by American owners the Glazer family, has been eager to let him go. According to sources, United, which paid 15 million to acquire Ronaldo from Juventus in August 2021, has not requested a transfer price in the hopes that another team would be willing to take on his 500,000-per-week contract. But other from Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia, United hasn’t had any inquiries concerning Ronaldo. – ESPN’s Mark Ogden
This information about Ronaldo’s situation with Manchester United is quite eye-opening. In addition to the club’s willingness to let the great striker go, they have also had little to no interest from other organisations, despite the fact that he is a free agent.
A lot of people would not have predicted this outcome before the season, but United is expecting that Ronaldo will have a strong World Cup performance to attract additional interest. Until then, it looks like they may be stuck with one of the best soccer players in the world.
