The reason Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Manchester United next summer

Viva Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo rejoined Manchester United, 13 years after leaving, at the end of the summer window.

Signed from Juventus, it has not been the returning spell he would have hoped for.

If it were not for the Portugal star, the situation could be far worse for the Red Devils too. Late goals from him have turned a draw into a win against Atalanta and Villareal, while a third rescued a draw against the Bergamo outfit in the return game.

However, Manchester United as a whole have been shocking. A 2-0 home loss to Manchester City, which followed a 5-0 home loss to Liverpool, has seen them slip down to sixth in the Premier League, nine points behind pace-setters, Chelsea.

Meanwhile, under pressure manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to flap, experimenting with formations and recalling previously shunned players as he desperately searches for a winning formula in Manchester. It does not make for pretty viewing.

Even the club’s main addition this summer, winger Jadon Sancho, is now being trained as a wing-back, a bizarre turn of events he surely didn’t expect when joining from Borussia Dortmund. It seems unlikely that Ole is the man to turn this around, and yet the hierarchy continue to hope, rather than sacking him.

Ronaldo’s CL football ultimatum

Now, as per Spanish outlet Marca, Ronaldo’s future at the club could be in doubt. The forward signed a two-year deal, with the option for a third, just months ago, but may already be weighing up an exit.

As per the report:

The Portuguese forward has an insatiable desire for silverware, both individual and collective, and is in no mood to remain at a club whose expectations and capabilities are not at the same level as his own.

As such, should United not finish in the Premier League top 4, and secure Champions League football, it would “likely see Ronaldo push for another move”.

Should United fans be worried, or would the loss of Ronaldo be a fair trade to finally get rid of Solskjaer?
