Who is going to make the final decision? Read on to find out. This article contains a number of speculations regarding the future of Manchester United’s star player.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes arrives at Carrington
Earlier today, the Portuguese star’s agent Jorge Mendes arrived at Carrington ahead of today’s training session. The player’s agent and manager had agreed to meet at Carrington on Tuesday morning, and they arrived an hour before the start of training. Manchester United’s board of directors and former manager Sir Alex Ferguson were also present at Carrington. The club’s CEO Richard Arnold is also present.
The former Juventus star and his agent Jorge Mendes have arrived at Manchester United’s Carrington training complex ahead of talks with manager Erik ten Hag. The striker has not taken part in pre-season training with Manchester United, and has missed the Red Devils’ tours to Australia and Thailand. The Portuguese international is keen to leave the club this summer, reportedly due to dissatisfaction with the club’s transfer business.
Manchester United are eager to understand the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, with his agent Jorge Mendes arriving at Carrington ahead of talks. However, the Portugal international has also expressed his desire to leave Manchester United this summer, and he has held talks with several top European clubs. The Spanish club have said they are open to letting the Portugal international leave for a loan while Manchester United are prepared to extend his contract.
United CEO Richard Arnold
Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly set to hold crunch talks with manager Erik ten Hag over his future at Man United. The Portuguese international has been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid, which would give him a fresh challenge after failing to make the Netherlands’ World Cup squad. However, United are keen to keep Ronaldo despite his desire to leave the club.
The Portuguese international’s future is likely to be sorted out at Old Trafford in the coming weeks, but it will depend on the outcome of the meeting with the new manager. In recent pre-season tours, Ten Hag repeatedly insisted that Ronaldo remain in the squad. However, the forward had to pull out due to family commitments. However, despite his absence, United shone in Australia and Thailand, scoring 13 goals in their respective tournaments.
Erik ten Hag
United manager Erik ten Hag is expected to insist on the inclusion of Cristiano Ronaldo in his upcoming crunch talks with the Portuguese talisman. Ten Hag is known for his firm convictions and has said he feels trapped by the player’s desire to leave the club after less than a year. However, his lack of inclusion could lead to the manager looking to bring in a new striker in the summer.
United are currently in pre-season and have invited a number of players to attend the crunch talks with Ronaldo, but the manager will not go into details. He has however been speaking to all players and will have a sit-down with Ronaldo in the coming weeks. The talks will take place when pre-season training gets underway in July. In addition to Ronaldo, United are expected to include youngsters Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in the first team.
While Ten Hag and Ronaldo spoke during the end of last season, they haven’t spoken since Ronaldo requested to leave. However, contact between the two camps has been maintained by both Man United’s chief executive Richard Arnold and Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes. Ronaldo is expected to attend the crunch talks with Erik ten Hag in the coming days. Ten Hag has reportedly confirmed that he has an option to stay at the club.
Several players are rumoured to be in a battle for a place in the starting XI. Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire and David de Gea have all enjoyed impressive pre-seasons, with the Red Devils claiming victories against Liverpool, Melbourne Victory and Crystal Palace. Ten Hag is a keen admirer of both players and has ordered players to report to Carrington on June 27. There will be strict fitness tests carried out, but Maguire is expected to be part of United’s tour of Asia and Australia next month.
The talks are likely to be tense, with the five-time Balon d’Or having been the captain when Maguire was absent last season. The chief executive has been in contact with the Portuguese forward’s camp and suggested that the players vote on who becomes captain. Ultimately, the final decision will be made by Ajax coach Rick Ten Hag. Ten Hag is renowned for guiding the club to three Eredivisie titles in a row.
It’s all very well and good that United are chasing a top-four finish and are currently three points clear of Tottenham and Arsenal, but that does not mean Ronaldo will remain at the club forever. After all, he has been out of training for personal reasons. However, Erik ten Hag has made it clear that Ronaldo is not for sale. The Portuguese international is desperate to move to a club in Europe with Champions League football. The Portuguese international has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer and has said that he would be prepared to take a 30% pay cut to join his rivals.
Reports claim that Erik ten Hag has already discussed the future of Cristiano Ronaldo with the players. The Portuguese star is expected to meet with the manager on Tuesday to discuss his future with the club. The talks will most likely take place in the last few weeks before United start their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia. Despite the fact that there are no concrete details on the outcome of the negotiations, Ronaldo has been said to be a ‘positive’ factor by club insiders.

Despite recent rumours, Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will not leave Manchester United. The Portuguese midfielder’s future has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks, with reports suggesting he had asked to leave the club over lack of ambition. In addition, Ronaldo failed to turn up to pre-season training because of a family issue.
United have been holding discussions with every single player, including the star. Ten Hag is expected to sit down with Ronaldo at the start of pre-season training in July to discuss his future in the club. In the meantime, the manager has also offered Harry Maguire encouragement, while not guaranteeing the captaincy for the midfielder. However, the manager has remained tight-lipped about the long-term plans of the club.
Rumours suggest that Cristiano will demand a move from Old Trafford if he does not get his desired contract extension this summer. However, a loan move this summer is still a possibility. Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid are the latest club to link the Portuguese international with a move. However, the player would have to commit for another season if he was to leave Man Utd, a decision that has left the club stunned.
Manchester United are in the midst of crunch talks with Cristiano Ronaldo over his future. Ten Hag has spoken with the players and is sure to listen to his frustrations. He will also sit down with Ronaldo to figure out what is bothering him. Ten Hag is eager to get Ronaldo back to the club, so will make a statement soon. He will then start the process of finding a replacement for the Portuguese international.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is rumoured to want to leave Manchester United, after just a year at Old Trafford. According to reports, Ronaldo has told Manchester United that he wants to leave and join another club. Despite having only returned from Juventus a year ago, he is still believed to be in the best shape of his career, and would love to prove his worth at a higher club.
Manchester United have agreed to pay PS71 million ($84m) for the Portuguese star’s services. While personal terms are unlikely to be a stumbling block for ten Hag, it is unclear if Ronaldo will be included in the team for Tuesday’s training session. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner would earn PS105m a season for the next two years, with his agent Jorge Mendes taking home PS20 million.
The Portuguese forward has reportedly been speaking to Erik ten Hag about his future at Manchester United this week. Despite United insisting that the player is not on the market, a recent report suggested that he has been holding back on pre-season training and was not turning up. The rumours he has been in contact with have been fuelled by the Portuguese media.
After the weekend’s news, a number of reports involving Ronaldo leaving Manchester United have been surfacing. Despite his contract extension with the Red Devils, the Portuguese is earning PS480,000 a week. United are due to leave for their pre-season tour of Asia on Friday. The talks between Ronaldo and ten Hag are highly likely to be intense.
