Due to worries about how Cristiano Ronaldo’s attitude is impacting team spirit, Manchester United may allow him to depart Old Trafford during the current transfer window.
Ronaldo, 37, has not been put up for sale and is still a part of manager Erik ten Hag’s plans, according to his public statements.
Senior figures have been concerned, though, by how quickly the enormously optimistic vibes that were spread across the camp following a fruitful pre-season tour to Australia and Thailand have subsided.
The Portuguese player’s contract, which he signed when he rejoined the team from Juventus less than a year ago, has one year remaining on it. but desires that United permit his departure this summer.
A portion of the overall picture has been attributed to Ronaldo, despite the fact that United was clearly deeply upset by their subsequent Premier League losses to Brentford and Brighton.
The Portuguese man is reported to be a bad influence at the club, rarely interacts with his teammates in the canteen, and has made it clear that he wants to leave.
The general uplift is thought to provide a big improvement in overall results if the forward left and there was no replacement.
Before the transfer window closes on September 1st, Ten Hag, Richard Arnold, the CEO, and John Murtough, the football director, are debating this problem.
United, who has no victories, is currently last in the Premier League and will play Liverpool on August 22.
Last month, Chelsea cut off their pursuit of the youngster, who has also been linked to Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Atletico supporters have encouraged their team to stay out of negotiations to sign Ronaldo.
