Cristiano Ronaldo tells Manchester United he wants to leave if the right offer comes along
Cristiano Ronaldo has told Manchester United he would like to leave if they receive a suitable offer this window.
Athleticism reported last weekend that Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly met with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes to discuss his situation and the idea of him moving to Chelsea. Bayern Munich have also reportedly been made aware of his situation, while Napoli are said to be interested.
PSG are currently not among the clubs interested in pursuing Ronaldo in this window.
Now United have been told they want to leave, should the right offer come from an interested club.
It is understood that United are of the opinion that Ronaldo is not for sale this summer.
Ronaldo, 37, has 12 months left on the contract he signed when he joined United last summer from Juventus.
He scored 24 goals in all competitions last season, finishing as United’s top scorer, but was unable to help them qualify for the Champions League. The lack of Champions League football this coming season and the desire to challenge for trophies are believed to be part of the reasoning behind his desire to leave.
The striker wants United to be competitive at the highest level and would like them to match his ambition by strengthening the squad.
They still haven’t signed since Erik ten Hag’s appointment, although they are close to adding Tyrell Malacia, want Frenkie de Jong and are in the running for Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.
