In recent weeks, reports surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future have increased. Chelsea are the latest club to be linked with the Portugal captain, with Jorge Mendes and Todd Boehly reportedly having a conversation involving the player. Bayern Munich have also been linked with his services, but sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has denied any such rumours.
Although Ronaldo has said that he is eager to see how things play out under Erik Ten Hag, his future is not completely certain by the looks of things. Manchester United insist that the player is not for sale, as he has one year remaining on his contract.
Cristiano Ronaldo wants to see ‘ambition’ in the market.
The 37-year-old will be missing out on Champions League football next season if he stays with Manchester United. He is arguably the greatest player in the history of the competition, as its current top scorer, and having won the trophy with both Real Madrid and United.
With Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United are expected to rebuild their squad this summer. They have offloaded several fringe players, but are yet to confirm any major signings for the first team. This is apparently upsetting Cristiano Ronaldo, who wants to see his team’s determination in the transfer market by finalising new names.
Fans of the club have also been frustrated by the lack of activity, while their rivals strengthen their squads ahead of the new season. As a result, if there is no major improvement, there is a chance Ronaldo could push for an exit by the end of the window.
