Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Man United this summer

Cristiano Ronaldo has told Man United he wants to leave.

Yes, you did read that headline correctly. Cristiano Ronaldo has told Man United he wants to leave this summer.

Yesterday afternoon, the Twitterverse was full of journalists giving their take on the situation. Though they were all in agreement in regards to Ronaldo’s desire to depart from Manchester United.

Amongst those first with the scoop was Fabrizio Romano, who added that Ronaldo wants to depart as he ‘wants to see more ambition’ from the Old Trafford club. Honestly, it’s hard to disagree right now, with the Red Devils continuing to struggle at all levels.

As things stand, United are ‘still hopeful’ of keeping the player, though they’re fully aware he wants to move on from the Theatre of Dreams.

There’s no agreement in place with any other club right now, though his agent, Jorge Mendes, will continue to explore the options out there for his client.

Honestly, the day United confirmed Ronaldo was coming home is arguably our best football-related memory over the last few years.

However, I’ll be honest. I’m not bothered either way. If Ronaldo stays, we’re keeping a proven winner and an elite level goal-scorer. If he leaves, we’d be parting with a player who seemingly doesn’t really want to be here anymore.

I cannot fault Ronaldo for wanting to leave, which is sad in itself. The club just isn’t in a good place right now and perhaps letting their biggest personality leave would truly mean United can hit the reset button and wipe the slate completely clean.

My only issue with it is the timing of it all. Ronaldo has clearly been feeling this way for affair while. Why not tell the club this at the start of the summer, meaning they had ample time to go out there and find the perfect replacement? Right now, I struggle to see many top-level options out there as they’ve all been signed by other clubs…

Do you think this is a fair request from Cristiano Ronaldo? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
