According to British media reports, Ronaldo once again told the Manchester United board that he did not want to stay at the club. The Portuguese did not play in the team's most recent warm-up game and his future is up in the air.
After weeks of uncertainty, Ronaldo finally joined Manchester United in training recently, but the truth is, his future is still unknown.
According to the "Daily Mail" report, the Portuguese star, accompanied by his agent Jorge Mendes, asked the board to give him a free transfer, that is, to terminate his contract for the final year. His intention is to leave now and return to freedom in this transfer window.
Manchester United played a friendly against Wrexham on Wednesday and Ronaldo didn't play for a minute as he watched his teammates win from the sidelines.
There has been no official confirmation yet, but it appears the 37-year-old Portuguese star will not be staying with the Red Devils next season. He still has a contract until June 2023, but the Portuguese wants to end it now.
According to British media reports, Ronaldo is willing to sacrifice a lot of money to leave on a free transfer this summer. His wish is to play for a club that can qualify for the Champions League.
Ten Hag has said more than once that Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale. He expects Cristiano Ronaldo to participate in the new season's games. However, the current situation is that Cristiano Ronaldo's determination to leave cannot be changed.
