Manchester United coach backs down and may allow Cristiano Ronaldo to leave – Jornal do Oeste

After saying several times that he has Cristiano Ronaldo for the season, coach Erik ten Hag changed his mind. Troubled by the bad atmosphere at Manchester United, which would be caused by the presence of the striker, the new manager of the English club should allow the star to leave this transfer window.

Since he took over the team, the Dutchman reiterated the speech that he had the Portuguese until the end of the contract, next year. He had even released Cristiano Ronaldo from pre-season travel, amid the player’s dissatisfaction, who was already showing signs that he wanted to leave the team.

The situation has changed in recent days. According to BBC Sport sources, the coaching staff would have assessed that the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo in the team would be affecting the climate in training, games and in the dressing room. The Portuguese would be isolated, without keeping in touch with teammates before and during matches.

The change was noticed with the start of the Premier League. United came from a great campaign in pre-season friendlies and the team started the competition with high confidence, waiting for promising games. But they lost their first two games, both against lesser rivals, including a weekend rout: Brighton (2-1) and Brentford (4-0).

In Ten Hag’s assessment, Cristiano Ronaldo would be the main responsible for the negative atmosphere at the club in recent days. The situation is worrying because United’s next game will be the classic against Liverpool, at home, next Monday, the 22nd.

What would be preventing the striker from leaving at the moment is the lack of options in United’s attack. The club would be doing market assessments to try a replacement for the Portuguese in this window.

Cristiano Ronaldo has not hidden since the end of last European season, in May, that he did not intend to continue at United. In the final stretch of his career, the Portuguese wants to take advantage of the time he has left on the pitch to try to shine in the most important tournaments, such as the Champions League. But United did not qualify for the prestigious tournament.

During the holidays, the name of the striker was offered to several European giants, such as Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain. Recently, the Portuguese would have been considered at Atlético de Madrid and Sporting.
