Ronaldo wants to leave Man United – reports

July 4,2022

CRISTIANO Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United this summer if the Premier League club receive an appropriate offer, according to multiple r e ­ports on Saturday.


The 37-year-old Portugal forward re­turned to Old Tr a f f o r d from Ju­ventus last summer but despite being United’s top scorer last season, and third in the Premier League, the campaign was over­all disappointing.


United finished sixth in the Premier League, missing out on Champions League qualification, leaving the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who has a year left on his contract plus an optional year, facing the prospect of play­ing in the Europa League for the first time. Man­chester United are adamant Ronaldo, who scored 24 goals in all competitions, is not for sale, according to reports, with new manager Erik ten Hag keen to work with him.


Ronaldo won three Premier League titles and the Champions League during six trophy-laden years with United before leaving for Real Madrid in 2009 and Ju­ventus in 2018, collecting more trophies at both clubs. United’s international players are due to report for training in the coming days ahead of flying to Thailand on Friday for the start of their pre-season tour. —AFP
