Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo’s nephew has urged the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to leave the club after witnessing the Red Devils’ humiliating 4-0 defeat by Brentford on Saturday (13 August).
The striker is keen to leave Old Trafford this summer as the club failed to qualify for the Champions League this season and the transfer window is disappointing.
Ronaldo has not signed up for Manchester United’s pre-season tour of Australia and Thailand for “personal reasons”. He played football just 45 minutes before the Premier League opener against Brighton.
The Portuguese came on as a second-half substitute and positively influenced his side’s performance. However, he was unable to help the Ten Hag side avoid a 2-1 loss to the Seagulls.
The former Juventus star has been included in Manchester United’s starting line-up for the clash with Brentford. The Portuguese star cut a frustrated figure as a pathetic defensive display and mistakes by goalkeeper David de Gea meant the Bees went 4-0 up within 35 minutes. Ten Hag’s side couldn’t make a comeback in the second half.
Manchester United’s dismal start to the campaign has raised questions about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club. The veteran striker’s nephew has urged him to leave the Premier League giants, writing on Instagram:
“Get out of there, uncle.”
Manchester United’s dismal start to the season suggests it could be a long 2022-23 season for the Red Devils. Given the current situation, the team is not expected to fight for a place in the top four.
Cristiano Ronaldo could ask for his contract to be terminated at Manchester United if results don’t improve
Uncertainty surrounding Manchester United’s future under Erik ten Hag could see Ronaldo asking for his contract to be terminated before the end of the summer transfer window.
The Portuguese has one year left on his contract with the club, giving Erik ten Hag’s side the opportunity to turn down offers from potential suitors. According to The Mirror, the former Juventus star has yet to receive any concrete offers.
Terminating Ronaldo’s contract would result in him becoming a free agent and could facilitate his move to another club.
United will need to show signs of struggle, determination and improvement in their next Premier League game against arch-rivals Liverpool if they are to persuade Ronaldo to stay.
