Cristiano Ronaldo sets the deadline to leave Manchester United
Cristiano Ronaldo still wants to leave Manchester United.
The Portuguese has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Old Trafford, while it is said he still wants to play in the Champions League.
Ronaldo did not travel with Manchester United to Thailand and Australia for pre-season tours – reportedly for personal reasons, reports Rhewal.
He returned to the “Red Devils” last week, until he appeared in Sunday’s friendly with Rayo Vallecano, in which he played just 45 minutes.
Despite being back in the United squad, the future of the 37-year-old remains in doubt.
According to “AS”, Ronaldo wants to be with a new team before August 7, when Manchester United plays the match against Brighton, which is the first for the new season in the Premier League.
According to the Spanish newspaper, the five-time winner of the “Golden Ball” is almost certain that he will not play against Brighton and this is also the deadline set by him to join a new team.
Agent Jorge Mendes is continuing to work to find a new team for Ronaldo, but so far his efforts have not yielded results.
Otherwise, the former attacker of Sporting Lisbon, Real Madrid and Juventus has a valid contract with Manchester United until June 30, 2023, while there is an option to continue for another year. /Express newspaper/
