Jose Mourinho has shown Erik ten Hag how to deal with Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has spoken out on the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting that the forward is not for sale. It has been reported that Ronaldo is unhappy with the wage cut he received after the club failed in the Champions League. He has also been unhappy with the fact that Manchester United have dropped into the Europa League. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is now reportedly unhappy with his current club and is eager to join another club that can match his ambitions.

The Portuguese star has already been linked with a move to Bayern Munich, while former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been linked with a move to Roma. Erik ten Hag also hinted that he may make a further transfer before the start of the season. It is reported that there is a chance for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich to make a move for Ronaldo.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has not spoken to Cristiano Ronaldo since the summer. The Portugal international is still unsure of his future and has not attended United’s tour of Australia and Thailand this summer. The Portuguese international was not available to travel on the tour due to a family matter, but ten Hag backs Ronaldo to return for the new season.

Ronaldo has told United he wants to leave if a’reasonable offer’ is made

Manchester United have confirmed that the Portuguese star has requested a transfer, but they are not rushing the process. The player, who is in his late 30s, is determined to win major trophies. United, who are currently sixth in the Premier League, haven’t made a single signing in the transfer window and Ronaldo’s entourage is worried about the lack of improvement in the team. United are reportedly interested in signing Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia and Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez. While United are not planning on selling Ronaldo, it is rumoured that Christian Eriksen and Frenkie de Jong have already made offers to Ronaldo.

However, it is important to note that Manchester United are resolutely against the idea of selling Ronaldo. Ronaldo has repeatedly stated that he wants to play in Europe’s elite club competition. Even though he is a key part of the United team, it is likely that he will not play in the Champions League next season. The club will be in the UEFA Cup, not the Champions League.

Despite the rumors, Ronaldo has spoken to Viana before his desire to leave United became public. Even if United are unable to find a suitable replacement for him, they must fear a ‘Ronaldo effect’ – a situation wherein a player will be unhappy. However, the manager should have confidence in Ronaldo’s ability to play a high-pressing game.

Ronaldo has missed four consecutive days of pre-season training under new manager Erik ten Hag

Manchester United have jetted to Thailand for a pre-season tour where they will face Melbourne Victory and Liverpool. The red devils are currently without their star man Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been forced to miss four consecutive days of pre-season training because of personal reasons. The Portuguese international has been given extra time off to deal with his absence. But the absence of Ronaldo will be felt even more keenly than before.

Despite missing four consecutive days of pre-season training, it is understood that Ronaldo is frustrated with his season at Manchester United. He missed out on the Champions League and has been linked with several teams. His contract is set to expire at the end of the current season, so he is likely to want to move on. However, despite his frustrations, United are keen not to sell the Portugal international.

Despite the absence, ten Hag is keen to build the team around the star player. He will keep Harry Maguire as captain but says he has no idea when the Brazilian forward will return. The striker has been away with his family since the start of the pre-season tour. After missing the first three days of training, he posted a picture with Cristiano Jr., Jose Semedo, and Miguel Paixao. The new manager’s ‘Press’ system is a big part of his plans, but has not made it official yet.

Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez is keen on a return to Madrid

Argentine-born Ronaldo is in love with the Spanish capital and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez is very keen to join him. The pair met in Madrid and began dating when they were just teenagers. They eventually separated in 2014 but reconnected in 2015 after he was spotted working at a Gucci boutique. Rodriguez reportedly felt very at home in Madrid and wants to move back there as soon as possible. She gave birth to their first child in November 2017 and is expecting a second child in October or April of 2022.

The two recently attended a Rosalia concert in Madrid and shared pictures of the night out. The two then went backstage after the show. Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend has said that she’s keen on a return to Madrid and wants to stay in the Spanish capital. Currently playing for Manchester United, the pair’s relationship has caused speculation about Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the club.

While the pair are expected to tie the knot, Georgina wants to avoid becoming a WAG. She has said she’s not interested in spending Ronaldo’s money but has also suggested that she may be a more active manager of the Argentine’s wealth. After all, she has studied financial accounting while she was pregnant. The course cost PS780 and Georgina attended classes twice a week.

Eric Bailly is being linked with a move to Roma

The transfer rumours are rife, with the Frenchman credited with interest from Napoli, Fulham and Roma. Jose Mourinho’s side are keen to offload Bailly and are likely to be prepared to pay less than PS10 million to get him. Although Bailly has only made seven appearances for the Red Devils in his career, four of those came in the Premier League.

Manchester United have a number of defenders who are surplus to requirements at the back, including England captain, Edgar Lampard, France World Cup winner Raphael Varane, Sweden’s Victor Lindelof, and Germany midfielder Phil Jones. With these high-profile arrivals, Bailly is hardly likely to get a regular place in the starting line-up. Moreover, Varane, who joined from Real Madrid in January, has relegated him to a back-up role. With Phil Jones in the starting line-up, Bailly is now a fringe player who is largely unreliable. And now, with all this turmoil at Old Trafford, he could be a candidate for a move to Roma.

Man United manager Jose Mourinho is keen to bring Eric Bailly to Roma. The Italian giants are reportedly willing to pay less than PS10m to sign the defender. The Portuguese manager’s desire to offload Bailly is particularly surprising given the fact that the French defender has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester. As a result, Bailly will only get a few opportunities in the first team next season. Instead, his position is likely to fall to Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and new signing Lisandro Martinez.

Manchester United are trying to sign Argentine defender Lisandro Martinez

The Argentine defender is reportedly on a permanent deal with Manchester United after joining from Dutch side Ajax. He has an agreement until June 2027 with an option for a further season. Ajax are hesitant to sell their player of the year, but are keen to keep Martinez. He is a strong centre-back who can also play in defensive midfield. It is not known if Martinez will be joining Manchester United for the pre-season tour.

The deal is still subject to medical and visa approvals, but is expected to be completed in the next few days. The defender has signed a five-year contract with an option for an extra 12 months, which will take him well past his 30th birthday. The Argentine was also interested in a move to Arsenal. However, he liked the style of play and the coaching of Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.

According to Mike Verwej, the Argentine has a contract with Ajax until 2022, but the Dutch club hasn’t offered anything less than EUR50 million. Ajax had initially asked for this price, and United expect to match it. Meanwhile, Arsenal have been linked with Martinez as well. If United can get him, the deal will surely be signed. If the club succeeds, Martinez will be a first-team regular for the Premier League.
