Manchester United Newsletter – Tuesday 26th July

Covering: Ronaldo back in Manchester, Martinez and Eriksen announced REALLY soon, De Jong dragging on…

Good morning!

Cristiano Ronaldo still wants to leave Manchester United, but, again, Jorge Mendes is struggling to find a suitable buyer. Today he meets with Erik ten Hag to map out his future, as per Pedro Sepulveda.

I have maintained all summer that Mendes has led the pursuit to find Ronaldo a new club. The agent has been in Ronaldo’s ear all summer, while others close to him are not of the same opinion when it comes to departing Manchester for a second time in his career.

Ultimately, I think the way the Ronaldo story has been handled this summer has been awful on Ronaldo’s part.

The timing, cryptic social media posts and non-stop speculation has only made life harder for the new manager. Now, he has a 37-year-old striker who has yet to do any training with the group this summer.

It’s far from ideal and United don’t need another soap opera.

Furthermore, I was told by one source last week that Ronaldo would be fined if he refused to turn up for training this week.
