Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent is still’very optimistic’ of his future away from Manchester United. Christian Eriksen is also weighing up his options. Meanwhile, Frenkie de Jong is a free agent and Jesse Lingard is close to signing for Nottingham Forest. But where will the world’s best players play next? There are several reasons why the top players will want to leave the Red Devils.
Ronaldo’s agent is’still very optimistic’ about a move away from Manchester United
According to the Portuguese midfielder’s agent, there is a chance a deal can be struck before the summer transfer window closes. After all, a summer move is only five months away. That means that a potential move away from Manchester United may still be in the cards, despite the current transfer ban. But there’s still time to save the marriage.
It’s no secret that a move away from Manchester United remains a very real possibility, and one which has been linked for a long time. Manchester United are preparing for a new season under Erik ten Hag, and a potential deal could be imminent – but that’s not the only option open to him. Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich, meanwhile, have all ruled themselves out. However, a potential move to a Premier League club may still be in the cards for the Portuguese superstar.
According to reports, if United fail to win the Champions League this season, Ronaldo’s contract is reportedly cut by 25 per cent. And even if the Red Devils finish second or third, Ronaldo’s salary is expected to drop by around 25%. It is also understood that United operate tapered deals for individual players, so if they’re not in the top four next season, Ronaldo’s salary will drop by a further 25%. However, United have not responded to our request for comment on the matter.
Despite the criticism, it’s important to remember that the Portuguese international has settled into life in England, and is one of the most popular players in the squad. He’s shown signs of frustration and disappointment at times, but it has been clear that he wants to stay at Old Trafford. But the rumours are just making the fans and staff nervous. In the meantime, ten Hag’s first priority is to find another permanent home for the Portuguese midfielder.
Real Madrid and Barcelona have already turned down a move for the iconic forward, but they haven’t made a bid. PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid have also been rumoured as potential suitors. And after all, United have signed Lisandro Martinez, who is likely to be a better fit for the left-hand side. And as long as they’re interested in Ronaldo, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t move for the Frenchman.
Christian Eriksen is weighing up his options
After his contract at Brentford expired, Denmark international Christian Eriksen is weighing up his future. During Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign, Manchester United dominated English football, and a move to Old Trafford seemed like a no-brainer. With seventy-five thousand fans at Old Trafford every week, it would seem an obvious choice. Unfortunately for the Denmark international, however, his future is still uncertain.
After signing a six-month deal with Brentford, Christian Eriksen has been linked with a move to Manchester United. After suffering cardiac arrest during Euro 2020, the Danish international was fitted with an implantable defibrillator to prevent a repeat of the incident. He has played well since joining the Premier League, and has now been linked with a move to the Red Devils. Despite his rocky start to life in England, the 29-year-old has made a successful return. But a move to Man United could cost PS18m.
Despite a lucrative offer from Manchester United, the Danish international has not yet decided on his future. Eriksen has been weighing up his options this month after joining Brentford. But he has opted to stick with United after a remarkable return to full-time football. The Norwegian midfielder has completed his medical with the Red Devils and has been confirmed as a player.
A deal with Manchester United would be a great deal for the Dane, but a move to another club could be a risk for his health. Christian Eriksen has a six-month contract with Brentford, so he’ll have to decide if the move to Man United is the right one for him. A move to Manchester United could make the player more comfortable with the club’s financial terms.
The Danish international has been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer. The Red Devils need a new attacking midfielder after losing Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata to injury. It is expected that Bruno Fernandes will remain first choice, but Eriksen will likely be fighting him for a starting spot. Despite this, Eriksen’s time at United will surely help the team.
Frenkie de Jong is a free agent
The Dutch defender has been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks. The Barcelona hierarchy have reportedly informed De Jong that a move to United is inevitable because of the club’s excessive wage bill, which has hindered the registration of new players. Nevertheless, the Dutch defender has stated his preference for staying at Barcelona. But if Barcelona’s financial troubles continue, he may have to move on to another club.
Manchester United have been trying to persuade the Dutch international to join the Red Devils this summer, but the player is extremely optimistic of moving elsewhere. The Red Devils have also been very keen to sign the defender, and the Dutch international has already met with some of the club’s executives in London. However, De Jong’s agent believes that he will remain at the Nou Camp and has expressed an interest in reuniting with Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford.
The Free Agent market has been flooded with rumours about the free agent Frenkie de Jong. According to the report on ESPN, Manchester United are “very optimistic” about signing the Dutch defender. The deadline for signing a free agent is mid-June. If the deal is agreed upon, the transfer would help Barca’s financial situation.
The Dutch midfield has been weak for several seasons now, and the club is paying a high fee to sign him. But he has not been able to transform the team. Instead, he has been unable to replace Busquets, and his emergence as an attacking midfielder has been a concern. United are also in the market for a replacement for Paul Pogba.
Jesse Lingard is close to a move to Nottingham Forest
After rejecting the chance to reunite with West Ham, Jesse Lingard has finally agreed a deal to join the Championship club. The former Manchester United midfielder is now expected to earn a reported PS115,000 per week, despite reports that he is in talks with West Ham. The move was being monitored by several Premier League clubs, including West Ham and Everton, as the former England international is preparing to play in his first season for Forest.
The English midfielder has been linked with a summer move to the Championship club, despite having a contract expire in June. Everton, West Ham United have all been linked with Lingard and Forest have been announcing their interest. The club’s fans have reacted positively to the news. Forest legend Stuart Pearce, who has previously worked with Lingard at Manchester United, believes that the move is imminent.
The player has previously played for West Ham coach Stuart Pearce spoke highly of the player on talkSPORT. According to the reports, Lingard is keen to play for England in the World Cup in Qatar in 2022. Although Lingard is expected to leave Manchester United this summer, he has been linked with several other Premier League clubs outside of Europe. The Nottingham Forest manager believes Lingard is the perfect player for his side and wants to avoid relegation.
The West Ham manager is hopeful that the deal can be arranged in time for the start of the Premier League season against Newcastle on August 6. The club has also signed Brandon Aguilera, Gilian Biancone, Omar Richards, and Dean Henderson. The transfer of Lingard would be a big coup for Forest and for Cooper. The transfer window closes on September 1 at 11pm.
