Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to remain with Manchester United during this summer’s transfer window despite speculation surrounding his future.
The 37-year-old Ronaldo has allegedly asked Manchester United to listen to offers for him this summer, as he is determined to continue playing in the Champions League during the 2022-23 campaign.
Ronaldo is also believed to be frustrated by Man United’s lack of movement this summer and is not confident that the club will be able to challenge for major silverware next season.
Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are among the clubs to be credited with an interest in the Portugal international over the last week.
Ronaldo did not report for pre-season training on Monday due to a personal issue, which will also see him miss the first leg of the team’s pre-season tour of Thailand, with the squad due to fly out on Friday.
Ronaldo’s absence from training is down to a genuine personal reason, with Man United having no issues with his failure to report to Carrington.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has allegedly been discussing his client with several clubs, but Bayern have ruled themselves out of the race, while neither PSG nor Real Madrid are thought to be considering moves.
As a result, the experienced forward is facing another season at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils continuing to insist that he is not available for transfer despite the speculation.
The newspaper claims that only ‘a significant shift’ would change the current situation, with Man United confident that the Portuguese will again lead their line next term.
Ronaldo scored 24 goals and registered three assists in 37 appearances for Man United last season, including 18 goals in 30 Premier League outings.
“Cristiano has no agreement with any club as of today,” Romano said on his official YouTube channel. “So it is not Cristiano going to fight with Manchester United because he has a proposal, a right offer and wants to leave immediately.
“He wants to send a message; he wants to see ambition. And he wants to go in case he finds a proposal. But at the moment he has no agreement with any clubs.”
Ronaldo has one year left on his contract at Old Trafford, with the option of an additional 12 months.
