Far from the romantic story when he returned to Manchester United last year, Cristiano Ronaldo is now at a standstill. At 37, the Portuguese wants to leave Red DevilsWho will not play in the Champions League this season. However, the exit door that has been long awaited for weeks does not exist at the moment. It is enough to start a new fire in the house of Manconian, who is engaged in another revolution.
Ronaldo Ten Hag: I love you and I don’t love you
At the heart of Manchester United’s renewal is one man: Erik ten Hag. The former Ajax Amsterdam coach, who was recruited at the end of May, is invited to be the one to hand over Red Devils On the road to success. With or without CR7? this is the question. Until now, the two men have sent flowers to each other through official letters. “He has done a great job for Ajax and is an experienced coach.The Portuguese striker presented at the end of May on the official Manchester United website. We are all happy and excited. I wish him well and believe that next year we will win titles together again! » The Dutch tactic responded, when rumors of CR7’s departure were already fueling the footballing planet: “Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale, it is in our plans […] I look forward to working with him. » Since then, the movement of melodrama has accelerated. Ronaldo skipped the summer tour and a lot of preparations to play a meaningless 45 minutes against Rayo Vallecano last Sunday, before going out at the break and leaving the field at a fast pace without permission. Behavior that does not satisfy the taste of his coach. “I definitely don’t accept that. It’s not acceptable to everyoneHe said ten pilgrims In an interview with Viaplay Sport After a few days. We are a team and should stay until the end. »
Registered divorce? both. Ten Hag returns to his position to defend his player. “I am really happy to have him. We have an excellent scorer and he is there and part of the teamwas confirmed at a press conference on Friday. Cristiano works hard. We’ll see if it starts on Sunday. » If so, in what system? What responsibilities? What expectations? In which site? The complete mystery is about CR7’s use and adaptation to his new trainer. In the meantime, the Funchal native remains silent and is still waiting for a positive result being slow to tip the tip of his nose.
The Portuguese’s wish is simple: at the age of 37, he does not want to wait and wants to join at all costs a senior team qualified for C1, too bad for his love story with Theater of Dreams. At this point the situation becomes more complicated. Despite all the insistence of Jorge Mendes, his agent, the latter is rejected from the legitimate destinations of the player with this record. Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City, Barcelona, Naples or even Bayern Munich, no one wants a player in the twilight of his career, while more exotic destinations (Sporting Portugal, Corinthians, Galatasaray or even in Saudi Arabia) because of the salary of the ball Five-pointed gold. Up to ten hag, according to information from cable Last Friday, I asked its leaders to facilitate the transfer process For the good of Manchester United .
But with less than a month remaining in the summer transfer window, staying at MU is CR7’s only option, even though it has significantly damaged his image as an icon of the club since the start of the summer. Gary Neville, his former teammate and Sky Sports consultant, said to himself ” Disappointed ” From the behavior of Ronaldo, which he considers unprofessional and not typical. So by September 1 at 11:59pm, when the transfer market closes in England, the slightest gestures, both on and off the field, will be scrutinized for the C1 goal-scoring holder from all angles, starting at noon on Sunday.
