Cristiano Ronaldo had the first conversation with the management of Manchester United, write the British media. According to the Telegraph, the Portuguese forward has asked to leave, but the club won’t let him. In the past period, it was written that Ronaldo wants to play in the Champions League at least next season, which he certainly won’t be able to do in Manchester United.
This reminded the English of the situation 14 years ago, when Manchester United allegedly blocked the departure of Ronaldo to Real Madrid. This summer it is Atlético Madrid, judging by the articles in the foreign media. Ronaldo is 37 years old and is still one of the highest paid players in the world.
Allegedly, the Portuguese had a conversation with Sir Alex Ferguson, who was his coach in Manchester and whom he respects a lot. United’s new coach, Erik ten Haag, has reportedly stated that Ronaldo can and should be an important part of their club’s immediate future.
