There is a lot of talk about Cristiano Ronaldo's future and what awaits him. The Portuguese seem to be on the way out and is looking for a new club. Although Erik ten Hag was strict that Ronaldo would stay and be part of the team this season, it seems that the Dutchman changed his mind after the first two rounds of the Premiership.
Manchester United is in big trouble considering that they have 0 points after two matches. Reinforcements are necessary and it looks like Old Trafford is no longer one of the favorite homes for footballers. Former Manchester United player, Luke Chadwick, commented on the situation regarding Cristiano Ronaldo.
Luke believes it is time for Cristiano to leave the club and prepare for the next challenge in his career. “You do sort of wonder if this whole situation would’ve been a bit easier if, when Ronaldo had aired views about wanting to leave, if they’d let him move on,” Chadwick told CaughtOffside.
“Obviously with Anthony Martial injured after a positive pre-season, there is a worry that without Ronaldo, you can’t see where the goals are going to come from. “I think, long-term, though it’s sad to say, I think it is time for Cristiano Ronaldo to move on.
You don’t want to see a situation where he’s training on his own, eating on his own in the club canteen
Cristiano Ronaldo and atmosphere
Rumors are circulating in the media that Cristiano Ronaldo is having lunch alone and that he is distant from others.
The Portuguese is frustrated with the situation within the club and the missing reinforcements. Ronaldo is not the only footballer who sees the need for reinforcements. It is also speculated that Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes talked to Erik ten Hag and told him that United lacks reinforcements.
“He’s an iconic figure for what he’s done at the club and the career he’s had – he’s one of the greatest ever. You don’t want to see a fractured relationship and a toxic atmosphere.
“It seems like it’s starting to affect the dressing room, so it may be time to cut ties with him and let him go if that’s what he wants. Maybe that’ll relax a few more in the dressing room, but it’s a tough situation for the manager when the options available in that position aren’t fantastic at the moment”.
There is not much left until the end of the transfer window. United will have to do something if they want to fight for the top of the table.
