Cristiano Ronaldo considering leaving Manchester United in June – Man United News And Transfer News



Cristiano Ronaldo is considering leaving Manchester United at the end of this season, according to a new report.

The Portuguese legend is said to be ready to make the decision once he knows who the side’s new permanent manager will be.

The Daily Star claims that ‘Ronaldo has a contract until 2023 – but could leave United this summer if he doesn’t agree with the managerial appointment.

‘Ralf Rangnick took charge on an interim basis at the end of November and is expected to take up the role of ‘Senior Football Advisor’ at Old Trafford on a two year deal ahead of next season,’ the outlet reports.

‘And although Rangnick is not thought to be under consideration for the job full time, Ronaldo has let it be known that he wouldn’t support the German’s appointment.’

The last claim does not bode well for the rest of this season as it suggests a mismatch or clash between the current manager and star player.

The two favourites to take the role on a permanent basis are Paris Saint Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax’s Erik ten Hag. Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers has also been linked.

The Times’ Henry Winter claimed yesterday that Ten Hag is the front runner whereas The Sun believes Pochettino expects to be offered the job.

Ronaldo’s frustrations at Old Trafford this season have been clear for all to see and it has not been the homecoming he had hoped for.

In his New Year message to fans on Instagram, he admitted to being unhappy and expressed a determination to put things right.

The 36-year-old’s name will always sell column inches and attract controversy and whilst there have been countless reports of his transfer having disrupted United, the fact is that he has scored six goals in five Champions League games and eight in sixteen for the Red Devils this season – not a bad tally.

His professionalism and personality have also been praised by all three managers who have taken the helm at Old Trafford since his return.

However, he will want to spend the twilight of his career somewhere where he can achieve his remaining goals and it is fair to say that Manchester United appears far from fulfilling that role as things stand.

Arsenal Transfer News: The Gunners are reportedly preparing a £60m bid for Youri Tielemans in the summer as Real Madrid look on

Real Madrid have been linked with Youri Tielemans for the last few months. But as per El Nacional, Arsenal are set to challenge the Spanish Giants to secure Youri Tielemans signature in the summer.

The Belgian playmaker has especially risen to prominence since the last season. Tielemans had an impressive 6 goals and 4 assists as he played all the games in the Premier League for the Foxes. To add to this, the Belgian has already scored 5 goals in the League in the 2021/22 campaign.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers recognizes that Youri Tielemans is a key player. Owing to this, he has made it clear that the Belgian would not be leaving in the January transfer window. 

Arsenal reportedly have recognized Youri Tielemans as their primary transfer target in the summer. The Gunners will reportedly make an initial bid of £60m for the Belgian when the transfer window opens in June. 

As per reports, the Gunners have been interested in Youri Tielemans for a long time. But they have stepped up their interest in the last few months after news broke out that the Belgian is looking to leave the Foxes. 

Mikel Arteta is in need of a creative central midfielder who could dictate play. Currently, Arsenal use Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka in their midfield, but the duo is primarily defensive. Hence, adding Tielemans would add another dynamic to their play. 

Real Madrid also want the Belgian playmaker

As stated earlier, Real Madrid have recently been linked with Youri Tielemans. The Spanish Giants reportedly see the Belgian to lead the midfield in the coming seasons. 

Both Toni Kroos and Luka Modric have been invaluable to the Spanish Giants. But given their age, the duo may not be able to deliver at the same levels in the upcoming seasons. Hence, Florentino Perez is reportedly targeting Tielemans to bolster his midfield as the club looks to return to their glory days.
