While he’s a popular figure in Manchester, Erik ten Hag is also under a lot of pressure. He has had to defend the ‘Pep Guardiola’ philosophy and stand firm when his players make mistakes. The Dutchman is also a vocal opponent of the club’s financial policies. In addition to this, he’s also the manager of a rival, and is likely to make a lot of tough decisions in the coming months.
In recent weeks, talks have centered around the future of Cristiano Ronaldo and whether he will stay at Manchester United. Ronaldo has not been present for United’s pre-season campaign and has not returned to first team training. However, despite his absence, Martial has been working hard in training and scoring goals. Martial has 79 goals for Manchester United and has a strong case for staying at the club, even if it costs millions to replace him.
It is unlikely that Ronaldo will stay at Manchester United. The club are open to selling some players, but most believe they will make the final decision closer to the transfer deadline. Martial is already a first-choice centre-forward for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while he has been linked with Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho. Darren Ambrose has previously said he does not see Ronaldo staying at the club.
Despite being a target for many teams, Martial’s form is proving to be excellent. Last season, he scored 24 goals in all competitions, but United failed to qualify for the Champions League. The Portuguese international wants to stay at Manchester United and fight for trophies. The winger has also been linked with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Ultimately, the decision will be up to Ronaldo.
With Cristiano Ronaldo expected to leave Manchester United this summer, rumours of a new centre forward are spreading. The Argentine striker has been a constant presence in the United side, but his absence from the starting line-up against Liverpool left him furious. It is thought he flew home to Portugal after being axed from the matchday squad. Manchester United could not confirm the player’s whereabouts, but it is believed he has returned home to recuperate from his hip injury.
It is not known whether Rashford will stay at United, but he would accept a deal with Real Madrid. The striker has been a target of the Spanish giants since joining last summer. Despite his impressive performances, he has failed to find his best form this season, with only five Premier League goals and two assists. However, he has an option to extend his contract by another year.
Although he is a top player, the Manchester United director must ensure he stays on top of the players’ lives. This means keeping a close eye on them and ensuring they are happy and motivated. The new manager cannot rely solely on the manager and must decide what is best for the club’s future. It must be the decision of the director to decide whether Ronaldo or Rashford should remain at Manchester United.
Despite being on the books at Manchester United for less than a year, striker Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be part of the summer transfer market. While there have been a number of targets for the former Barcelona man, he remains an Old Trafford fixture. Ajax forward Antony and Portuguese midfielder Junior Pedroso have been linked with moves away from the Red Devils. However, there has been a sticking point: the asking price for both players. Although the former Barcelona man has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, it is believed that his asking price of EUR80m is an obstacle. This would equate to about PS68m. It is difficult to see a transfer for Ronaldo if he is injured and lacking options.
The rumours of Ronaldo’s imminent move away from Manchester United have been around for a while. While there are some who believe he was brought back by Jose Mourinho to jumpstart the team, many believe the Portuguese star’s return has actually destabilised United’s season. Ronaldo has scored 21 goals in all competitions for United and has six goals in the Champions League. However, Ten Hag has a proven track record of working with less energetic footballers. Previously, he brought in Dusan Tadic and Edinson Cavani, two of the team’s best players.
Recent reports suggest that a potential move for Cristiano Ronaldo could lead to the Portuguese star’s departure from Manchester United in the summer. This speculation is largely due to the fact that Ronaldo had already expressed his desire to leave the club before the 2022-23 season. Some reports also claim that Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the Brazilian. However, despite the rumours surrounding the Portuguese star, United boss Erik ten Hag has insisted that the former Real Madrid striker will not be sold. In fact, he has also suggested that he might stay beyond that season’s 2022-23 campaign.
Erik ten Hag
After announcing his resignation from Ajax, Erik ten Hag has yet to decide if he will keep Cristiano Ronaldo at the club. The Dutchman, however, has confirmed that he is targeting another league title with his new team. He is likely to implement a new style of play at Old Trafford, which could test the current playing group. While he has yet to make any firm decision, big changes are on the way in the red half of the city. Despite this, many pundits still maintain that Ronaldo must stay at Man Utd.
Although the Portuguese star has been linked with moves to other clubs, ten Hag is convinced that he can convince Ronaldo to stay at Manchester United beyond next season. Having scored 18 Premier League goals last season, Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford. Only Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min have scored more league goals last season than the Portuguese striker. The rumours about Ronaldo’s future are based on speculation that he has not spoken to the new coach yet, which may explain why he hasn’t returned for pre-season training yet.
With only a year left on his contract, it has been difficult for United to get rid of the Portuguese striker. Despite this, they have received no serious bids for the talented winger. While there is still a chance that Ronaldo will leave Man Utd, he has been criticised for his changes in team style and leadership style. But despite this, the Portuguese star is reportedly determined to stay at the club, if the manager wants him to.
Manchester United’s attacking options
After one season at Old Trafford, it is not surprising that Ronaldo wants out. With the club no longer in the Champions League and in a sorry state of health, it is difficult to see how the former Juventus star can compete with the best in England. Last season, United finished sixth, 35 points behind league leaders City. Moreover, Ronaldo has been in Portugal with his family since the summer, taking a break before the new Premier League season kicks off in two weeks.
Erik ten Hag isn’t certain about the return date for Cristiano Ronaldo. The forward has not reported for pre-season training due to a family matter. The Portuguese forward missed the pre-season tour to Australia and Thailand. Nevertheless, Manchester United will be back on the field next week to play Atletico Madrid in Norway and Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford.
Besides Ten Hag, former Manchester United players Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville will be prominent in the UK media. Nonetheless, Ten Hag believes that outside opinions should not influence the dressing room. Manchester United have a much bigger fan base than Ajax, which is a positive. The club also have a larger and more powerful fan base. Ultimately, he hopes to lay the foundation for a new era at the club.
Erik ten Hag’s first meeting with Ronaldo
Former Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed that he wants to leave the club. The Portuguese international, who joined the Red Devils from Juventus in December, has a miserable season at Old Trafford, collecting the fewest Premier League points in a season. Erik ten Hag, who took over from Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer, has said that he wants to stay at United, but that he would be happy to keep Ronaldo elsewhere.
United haven’t yet announced their next move and the Portuguese superstar hasn’t been with the squad for the pre-season tour to Portugal. Instead, he’s been training in Lisbon. It’s unclear when he will be back, but he is expected to report to Carrington on Monday. The news of Ronaldo’s arrival in England comes as a shock to fans of the club. After all, Chelsea have let Romelukaku and Bayern Munich leave, and now Manchester United have been left without a striker.
The Dutchman has already spoken highly of Ten Hag in the pre-season and has expressed his enthusiasm for the new manager at Man Utd. In the press conference, he didn’t go into detail about the situation involving Ronaldo but did stress that it’s not too late for the Portugal international to make a decision. He also emphasized the importance of taking time off after a season that drains his energy. However, he didn’t promise that Harry Maguire would retain his captaincy at United.
