Man United admit defeat in Ronaldo-saga as Red Devils set realistic price tag

Manchester United have reportedly admitted defeat in their quest to keep Cristiano Ronaldo next season.

That’s according to Portuguese journalist Bruno Andrade, who has claimed the Red Devils have slapped a £13m (€15m) price tag on the five-time Ballon d’Or winner and are ‘open to’ negotiations.

The 37-year-old club legend returned to Old Trafford last summer after agreeing a move away from Italian side Juventus.

However, despite kicking his second stint off with a bang by netting a brace on his homecoming debut against Newcastle United, things have since turned a touch sour.

Cristiano Ronaldo looks to be leaving Man United this summer.

Following the Red Devils’ failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League, it is understandable why Ronaldo may be keen to move on – he doesn’t have long left in his career and he is looking to dominate European football’s record books.

Irrespective of the attacker’s personal ambitions, it is important to remember that he has a contract and United are under no obligation to sell.

However, following speculation that the 20-time league winners have slapped a modest price tag on his head, it would be fair to assume that the club, now managed by Erik ten Hag, and the player, are actually on the same page when it comes to a potential exit this summer.
