Manchester United are reportedly ready to let Cristiano Ronaldo leave the club in January.
The Portuguese forward has been in default at Old Trafford in recent weeks.
Ronaldo was on the bench when Manchester United beat Tottenham 2-0 in the Premier League week 12, Thursday (20/10/2022) early morning.
He took off first into the locker room before the final whistle. According to British media, Cristiano Ronaldo refused to come on as a substitute and chose to go first.
Manchester United are now reportedly considering an exit strategy for Ronaldo, whose position is untenable with manager Erik ten Hag.
United may offer to let Ronaldo go on a free transfer to ensure he can find a new team when the transfer window opens after the 2022 World Cup.
Erik Ten Hag sanctioned Ronaldo, which was exiled from first-team training, then dropped from the MU squad against Chelsea. MU management also imposed a fine of £720,000, equivalent to the superstar’s 2-week salary.
Ronaldo is likely to be allowed to join the team again after the trip to Stamford Bridge. The star has also expressed regret through his social media accounts.
Through his Instagram, Ronaldo implied regret. He ensures that he will provide maximum support to the team. He will continue to work hard in training and work closely with his teammates.
Soon we will be together again.”
Broken Cassette Last Season
Ronaldo has reportedly tried to leave Manchester United last season. CR7 is still ambitious to appear in the Champions League, something that Manchester United cannot give him this season.
However, the summer transfer market was not on his side.
Many clubs do not want to recruit Ronaldo, the salary factor is one of them. Starting from Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, to Napoli.
As a result, CR7 inevitably stay at Old Trafford.
