Cristiano Ronaldo insists he wants to leave United


Cristiano Ronaldo’s future is still up in the air. The Portuguese crack, accompanied by his representative Jorge Mendes, went today to Manchester United’s facilities in Carrington to find a solution to his situation, but so far it has not happened.

In his meeting with the club CR7 maintained his intention to leave and for this his agent, as revealed by Cadena COPE, proposed the renewal of his contract, which expires in June 2023, to be loaned this season to a team that allows him to participate in the Champions League.

In this way, Cristiano, 37, will see his desire to play another season in European football’s elite come true and leave open the possibility of a return to Old Trafford if United qualify for the top competition after his absence in the edition. 2022-2023.

Ferguson’s sentimental factor

According to the British media, the meeting, in addition to Cristiano and Mendes, was attended by Richard Arnold, executive director of Manchester United, the new coach Erik ten Hag and Sir Alex Ferguson, the legendary former coach of the ‘red devils’ , whose presence is interpreted as an attempt by the Old Trafford club to convince the Portuguese crack to continue.

Cristiano has always admitted that Ferguson is like a football father and has had a lot of influence on him since he became a player during his first spell at United (2003-2009).
