The rumours are that Man Utd are in the dark about Cristiano Ronaldo’s potential return to the club have been debunked. The Manchester club has dismissed the reports and is determined to keep the Portuguese international. Apparently, former Real Madrid star Jorge Mendes has offered the player to Bayern Munich and Chelsea. While the pair have been linked, Bayern Munich aren’t interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo, as Bild claims. With rumours like these, it seems that Ronaldo is set to stay at Manchester United.
Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United
The reports that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United are not surprising at all. After all, he only has a year left on his contract. Last season, United finished sixth in the Premier League and failed to qualify for the Champions League. The Portuguese superstar has a high-profile back home, and his 462 million Instagram followers are a testament to his success. If United can make a serious push this season, it could be the perfect time for Ronaldo to leave.
It’s not clear whether Ronaldo is keen to leave this summer. He was part of United’s plans this summer, but he has reportedly spent a lot of time on the bench in preparation for the World Cup. While this is a huge disappointment for the club, it does add some speed to the rebuilding process. United had to miss out on signing Erling Haaland from Manchester City and Darwin Nunez from Liverpool last summer, but they’ll have to find a replacement for Ronaldo. If they want to compete in Europe, they have to bolster their squad.
According to reports, Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United this summer. The Portuguese forward was the leading goalscorer last season, but he thinks his time at the club is over. He wants to play in the Champions League and says that he has enough experience to continue playing at the top level for at least three or four years. That’s why he wants to leave Manchester United, but it’s important to remember that he has one year left on his contract, and another optional year.
If he does move on, it will likely mean a new challenge for Manchester United. Despite the heightened demands of Ronaldo’s fans, Manchester United have failed to make any signings this summer, which puts the club in an even worse position in terms of finding a replacement for him. With no new players joining before the squad has even started training, the club may not even be able to survive in the Premier League.
The standoff between the two sides is getting worse with each passing day. The Portuguese has yet to return for preseason training with the club, despite announcing that he’s out of contract. Though United have publicly said that Ronaldo will be back before the Premier League season starts, the club’s stance behind the scenes is very different. So the fans of the club can only wait and hope that the two sides can resolve their differences.
The Portuguese superstar has been rumoured to want to move to Chelsea, but Thomas Tuchel has been unwilling to let Ronaldo leave. After all, the club just sold Romelu Lukaku and hasn’t made any significant moves. While the United players may be happy with the pact, Ronaldo wants to leave. But it will be a difficult process. However, there are some other possibilities.
Thomas Tuchel is reluctant to sign him
Despite interest in Cristiano Ronaldo, the new Chelsea manager is hesitant to sign the Portuguese. He fears that signing Ronaldo will change the style of football that Chelsea play. Instead, the French manager is pursuing a range of other targets, including Presnel Kimpembe, who would replace Antonio Rudiger. Tuchel wants a flexible center forward to compliment Raheem Sterling and Ramires. Meanwhile, Barcelona are interested in signing Raphinha, a striker who would fit into Chelsea’s front three.
Despite Ronaldo’s reputation, Tuchel is reluctance to sign Ronaldo. A recent report in The Independent claims that the new manager is not interested in signing the Portugal international. However, it should be noted that Tuchel has sanctioned the loan move of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan. If he hasn’t signed Ronaldo yet, he may reconsider later.
Although Chelsea are a frontrunner for the Portuguese star, there are a number of other sides in the race to sign him. According to reports, owner Todd Boehly recently met with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes. However, Tuchel is reluctant to sign Ronaldo because he believes that he would not fit into his system. Tuchel, meanwhile, is in need of a forward with versatility and the ability to play free-flowing football.
The Portuguese star is determined to leave Manchester United this summer. However, his transfer to Chelsea is not without risk, as the club has signed two players who can fit into his high-pressing style of play. As a result, Tuchel has been wary of signing Ronaldo, while concentrating on acquiring Sterling and Raphinha instead. But he has a more flexible approach when it comes to the recruitment of players, which he hopes will ensure a strong squad for the coming season.
The Argentine is also wary of bringing Ronaldo to Old Trafford, as he fears signing a superstar who may hinder his plans. He was unsuccessful with Solskjaer’s plan when he brought Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, while retaining Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood. Tuchel does not want to go through that same crisis again with Ronaldo. A similar situation is unlikely to happen again under the new manager.
The new owners of Chelsea are an easy target for many players. However, they lack nationality and experience, which could explain their decision. While they have supposedly empowered Thomas Tuchel to bring in a new striker, the new owners’ focus is not on Ronaldo. Despite the fact that he is a massive admirer of the Portuguese star, he is keener on other options for the team.
Despite a lack of interest in the Portuguese, Tuchel is not ruling out signing a striker. Chelsea have already signed Raheem Sterling from Manchester City. In the meantime, the Blues have lost Raphinha in the race to sign him. The Blues are also finalising deals for centre backs, including Nathan Ake and Kalidou Koulibaly. In the meantime, the new boss has been in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over Presnel Kimpembe.
Ruben Neves and Youri Tielemans are other targets
It is unclear what the future holds for Manchester United’s star striker, with reports claiming that he is keen to join another club to play Champions League football. However, the club have refused to sell him, and United director Erik ten Hag hopes to have showdown talks with the Portuguese this week. But it will be difficult to predict what will happen after the current preseason.
Despite their recent resounding defeat at the hands of rivals Manchester City, United remain in the dark over Ronaldo’s return. The club have said that the former Real Madrid striker is unable to start training again until he returns to the club. However, it is worth noting that the Portuguese international has not been able to return to training and is likely to take a month to reach a decision on his future.
There have been several rumours in recent days about the possibility of a deal falling through, but no one has been willing to reveal any details on this. The rumours of a potential deal with Atletico Madrid suggest that United will have to make a massive fee to get Ronaldo back to Old Trafford. However, if they do, they will need to offload two players to make room for the new striker.
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to arrive back in Manchester on Monday, and will be meeting with new manager Erik ten Hag on Tuesday. The Portuguese has already missed the first three weeks of pre-season with the club and was forced to take compassionate leave following an issue with his family. In addition to this, the Portuguese superstar had also told Manchester United that he wanted to leave Old Trafford this summer and had a family matter which had prevented him from completing the pre-season.
The Portuguese striker has been a popular signing in recent years, with his 44 goals in eighteen games for the Red Devils helping them to win the Champions League and the European Cup. After the summer’s summer signings, the club went on to improve their squad and ended up leading the table. With the help of new signings, Manchester United held off a late charge from Chelsea to the title. Despite the lack of a key player, Cristiano’s performance was impressive enough to win the Champions League and the European Cup.
Manchester United have already begun their pre-season and are training under Erik ten Hag. However, the players involved in June internationals had longer breaks and were subsequently not able to train. So they will be back in training on Monday, where ten Hag will name his team for the pre-season tour. A new signing could be a welcome addition to the squad and ensure the club’s continuity in the forward area.
