Cristiano Ronaldo stays at Manchester United despite constant transfer speculation

Cristiano Ronaldo is staying put at Manchester United.

We covered a lot of speculative reports this summer linking Ronaldo with moves to several clubs, with his agent Jorge Mendes holding meetings behind United’s back. Mendes is not contracted to United in any way, shape or form, and he can meet with other clubs if he wishes – but it is no secret that he has been trying to engineer a move for his most prominent client this summer.

There is six hours remaining in the transfer window and a transfer looks increasingly unlikely. Ronaldo could even start for United tonight against Leicester City – after being benched for recent wins over Liverpool and Southampton.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claim Ronaldo is now “resigned” to staying put and that he is likely to be involved against The Foxes later.

Ronaldo has only started one Premier League game for United so far this season and he will want to ensure he gets more game time over the course of the season. Getting back to what he does best – scoring goals — would only help raise his stock in the squad.

One report in Spain suggests Ronaldo has a season-long loan offer from Napoli on the table and that it represents his final chance of a move this summer, although the Portuguese superstar is not keen on a move to the Serie A club.

Cristiano Ronaldo ratings in FIFA 23

FIFA 23 ratings for Manchester United players were leaked last week and Ronaldo received a significant downgrade for pace in this year’s game.

However, the five-time Balon d’Or winner is still one of the best finishers in the game. It will be intriguing to see how much his value drops in the FUT community.

Ronaldo part of Ten Hag’s plans

Erik ten Hag has stressed all summer that Ronaldo is part of his plans.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Ten Hag said: “It is clear, we need quality players. “You need more and to cover all the games to keep the consistency going, that’s what we strive for.

“Especially from offensive players, they are quicker fatigued because they have to run more and run with higher intensity. We expect that from them and our way of play.

“We need numbers there, we need not just quantity but quality.”
