Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to stay at Manchester United this summer despite recent reports suggesting the Portuguese had asked to leave the club. That’s according to Sky Sports,
who assert that the 37-year-old will report for pre-season training in July.
Portuguese paper Record had reported that Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to leave Old Trafford after just a season back in the Premier League over Manchester United’s lack of ambition in the transfer market and doubts about the ability of newly appointed coach Erik ten Hag.
Not so, and Diario AS reports that Bayern Munich were preparing for a move for the Portuguese superstar to replace Robert Lewandowski, who may be in Barcelona. It is thought that signing him is not in line with the German party philosophy.
Manchester United are in a difficult situation. They finished in 6th place last season to qualify for the UEFA Europa League with a toothbrush and appear to be far behind Manchester City and Liverpool. A challenging and important summer awaits them.
