How much it would cost Ronaldo to buy out Man United contract

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United has not gone to plan.

Having arrived back at Old Trafford just over 12 months ago, although the Portuguese megastar picked up right where he left off by scoring a brace against Newcastle United on his second debut, things have since turned sour.

Following United’s failure to qualify for this season’s Champions League, Ronaldo, 37, has appeared frustrated and seemingly eager to leave the club again before his deal expires at the end of the season.

After failing to move in the summer, United’s iconic number seven has been forced to accept a bit-part role under new manager Erik Ten Hag. Clearly annoyed at being pushed out of the first-team picture, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s emotions got the better of him last week.

Despite his teammates beating Spurs two-nil at Old Trafford, Ronaldo was far from happy.

Spotted refusing to come on for the game’s remaining minutes and then seen storming off down the tunnel ahead of time, Ronaldo, as per the club’s official website, was quickly punished. The former Real Madrid Galactico was dropped from United’s team to face Chelsea last weekend and was told to train away from the other senior players.

Cristiano Ronaldo has started just two Premier League games so far this season.

Although expected to return to the fold in time for the team’s Europa League clash against FC Sheriff at Old Trafford on Thursday night, there is intense speculation that the January transfer window will see the 37-year-old legend finally get his wish and leave the club where he made his name for the second time in his glittering career.
