Cristiano Ronaldo has yet to decide whether to stay at Manchester United for next season. Outside the Champions League, the star is in the crosshairs of other European giants, but he can continue in the Premier League if his demand is met.
The main request of the star of the Portugal selection concerns the performance of the Red Devils in the ball market. According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the number seven is not satisfied with the club’s current squad and hopes to be able to play with more qualified athletes.
Without being able to make these guarantees, Manchester United has at least one certainty at the moment: Cristiano Ronaldo is part of the plans for next season and is not for sale. Newcomer coach Erik ten Hag believes the playmaker could play an important role within the team in 2022/2023.
Cristiano Ronaldo in Chelsea and Bayern?
The star’s agent, Jorge Mendes, spoke with representatives of two European giants in recent days. The first was Bayern Munich, who promptly turned down the idea of having him replace Lewandowski. The other interested team was Chelsea, but nothing productive was extracted from the meeting.
Cristiano Ronaldo was named Manchester United’s best player last season. Even far from his peak, the star shone with 18 goals in the Premier League and six in the Champions League. The performances in the domestic league contributed to the campaign of 58 points in 38 rounds, enough to guarantee a spot in the Europa League.
One of the reasons why the ace still hasn’t made his decision is the World Cup. At 37 years old, he knows that this could be his last World Cup for Portugal and, therefore, he wants to make history in Qatar. The team will face Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea in the first phase of the tournament which starts in November.
