Reports: A change in Manchester United’s attitude to Ronaldo’s future

English reports show that there has been a change in the attitude of Manchester United club and coach Eric Ten Hag towards Cristiano Ronaldo’s future.

The Portuguese captain asked to leave the club last month and was not present on the Red Devils’ pre-season tour to Thailand and Australia.

Ronaldo returned to training for the first time on Tuesday, but was joined by his agent Jorge Mendes on his way to Carrington.

Ronaldo held talks with Manchester United officials, where he stuck to his stance on his departure, knowing he looks forward to playing in the Champions League next season.

Ten Hag insisted all summer that Ronaldo was not for sale and that he was making plans for next season with the Portuguese in mind.

Anthony Martial, however, impressed Ten Hag during the preparation, along with Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford.

There is now a feeling at Old Trafford that the club’s best service is to cut ties with Ronaldo, and that it could be more difficult to reintegrate him into the group, despite his apparent quality.

And the English newspaper “Metro”, quoted the global network “Sky Sports”, that the general position of Manchester United had not changed with regard to the refusal to sell Cristiano Ronaldo.

She explained that the board and Ten Hag have nevertheless agreed behind the scenes to listen to upcoming offers from clubs that want to include the 37-year-old.

United paid Juventus £12million to sign Ronaldo last summer, and they wanted a similar fee to let him go this time.

The problem, however, is that the number of candidates for Ronaldo appears to be declining, with Bayern Munich withdrawing from the race, while Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel objected to the move after Todd Boehle held talks with Mendes.

Atletico Madrid are the latest club to downplay rumors of Ronaldo’s transfer, following comments from President Enrique Cerezo.
