Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has done a new video for his YouTube channel to give the latest news on Cristiano Ronaldo.
On Saturday, it emerged that Ronaldo has made it clear to United that he wishes to leave this summer.
Romano says Ronaldo likes Ten Hag, but has asked to leave because he wanted new signings – which I’m sure will come in due course.
He adds that Ronaldo is really ‘disappointed’ because he feels the club should be making a strong statement in the transfer window.
United’s stance is that the player is not for sale.
The Italian journalist stresses that this is not a formal transfer request but instead Ronaldo is asking for permission to leave if an offer comes in. I personally don’t think Jorge Mendes or Ronaldo would have leaked this if they had not received assurances from recent meetings with clubs across the contingent. We already know his agent discussed a potential move with Chelsea owner Todd Boehly.
If Ronaldo decides to go AWOL before the season starts, he’s not showing the new manager much respect and they need to come to a conclusion before the team jets off to Thailand next week.
