Manchester United Player of the Year has asked to leave the club with Mourinho keen to take advantage

Posted by

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly asked to leave Manchester United this summer.

Ronaldo recently won Manchester United’s Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award after an impressive season on a personal level. United as a whole endured a difficult season, ending trophyless and failing to qualify for the Champions League.

The Portuguese star could now leave the club, with La Repubblica reporting that the 37-year-old has asked his agent Jorge Mendes to secure him a move away from Manchester United.

The report also claims that Roma are now showing an interest in bringing Ronaldo back to Italy.

Ronaldo is reportedly feeling that he doesn’t feel involved in Erik ten Hag’s project, and the lack of Champions League football has influenced this decision.

Roma themselves will also be without Champions League football next season, so a move to Jose Mourinho’s side seems unlikely, but the report has also mentioned Sporting Lisbon as a possible destination for Ronaldo.

If Ronaldo does leave the club, Manchester United will need to act fast in replacing him. A striker is needed this summer regardless of Ronaldo leaving or not, with Edinson Cavani departing at the end of his contract.

Replacing Ronaldo won’t be easy, as the 37-year-old is still banging in the goals at the highest level.

  1. This really is proving to be a difficult rebuilding process. In the end, if Utd are able to sign anyone, it may be a few free agents willing to come play at Old Trafford. Ten Haag will be forced to keep some of the youngsters who would otherwise go out on loan to supplement his senior squad. I hope it doesn’t end up like this but it doesn’t seem to be looking good on the transfer front so far….

  2. Which one is feeling involved in the project
    Is it about what you’re feeling or what it actually is, Eric has told CR7 that he’s gonna be a part of the rebuild obviously and he also recently reported he’d love to stay so where’s this one coming from or going to with is. Obviously, as we say in the last season he wasn’t always available for games and maybe wasn’t fit, and United plan to bring in another natural CF like himself as a back up and also to provide competition, so whatever it is CR7 is staying I don’t know where he’s going to again

  3. How is Roma any better than Man Utd? The media outlet could have at least come up with a more believable club. Side track a bit – the lack of transfer activity or progress for Man Utd is worrying.

  4. If I’m CR7’s shoes I will not blink before leaving… This club is not serious and it shows in their transfer docility. How can you rebuild when almost half of your best players have left and you sign none as replacements?

    This club is a shame to what it stand for.

  5. Cr7 is going no where, I don’t really know that is man u problem,they keep on biding everytime but does nothing. All the big club in England are already buying, almost our first eleven has gone what are they waiting for to sign.
