Manchester United News: The fans of the legendary English club were shocked when rumors came in regarding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future. His time at Manchester United was under serious consideration and many feared that he could move. A possible destination would have been Bayern Munich.
The striker who is also called the ‘prodigy son’ has been the only positive for the club. He had scored 24 goals in a team that barely managed to gather points every week.
Manchester United has already set its targets this summer. New manager Erik Ten Hag has taken a step towards the brighter side. He has already released Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Dean Henderson (On loan), and Andreas Pereira (Close To A Move). Other players like Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, and Wan Bissaka could follow the same path.
Manchester United News: Cristiano Ronaldo Preferred To Stay Rather Than Follow His Teammates
Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes kept his client’s name in front of the Bavarian giants. However, his wage demands could have ruined their structure. This was one of the primary reasons behind their rejection, but it also meant that the player never wanted to leave.
Manchester United have been trying their best to keep their past terrors aside by making some major revamp. However, they need their star players to stay.
Erik Ten Hag always admired working with Ronaldo. But the only fear was the club’s absence from the prestigious Champions League, a league where Cristiano Ronaldo loves to play.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the striker would look at two factors before committing his future to the club for one more year. Firstly, the club’s ability to draw a place in the Champions League, and secondly, their strategy in the transfer market.
Manchester United News: Ronaldo Presence Could Help The Club Draw Star Players To Old Trafford
The current transfer market has been running quite slow for Manchester United. They are yet to sign their first chief target. Frenkie De Jong deal could be wrapped up anytime soon but they also need to sign a center-back and an attacker.
But it seems that their star striker is convinced by the fact that the club has shown some promise by clearing the deadwood, the most notable one being Paul Pogba.
Also, having a player like Cristiano Ronaldo gives a green tick to Erik Ten Hag’s transfer plans. It does indicate the fact that the Red Devils still hold the potential of attracting top players even after the odds are against them.
