Is this the end of Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford?
Cristiano Ronaldo already wanted to leave Manchester United in the summer to play in the Champions League. However, the Portuguese failed to find a solution to the situation and had to stay at Old Trafford despite his dissatisfaction.
This season, the former Real and Juventus player has been regularly overlooked by Erik ten Hague when choosing his lineup. The Portuguese usually appeared on the playing field from the substitutes’ bench, and in some duels, like against Manchester City, he did not play at all.
As it turns out, Wednesday’s match against Tottenham could be decisive in terms of Ronaldo’s future. The striker sat out the match once again on the substitutes’ bench, and moreover went to the locker room even before the final whistle. Ten Hag promised to address the situation. On Thursday, Manchester United issued a special statement pulling its player from the lineup
According to some sources, the Portuguese will also train individually in the near future. According to British Isles journalists, the Red Devils’ authorities have had enough of Cristiano Ronaldo’s behavior. Despite a contract that runs until June 2023, there are many indications that the club will want to terminate Ronaldo’s contract, and the player will look for a new club on his own in January.
