Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly dropped a bombshell on Manchester United, telling the club it is time for him to leave.
Portugal international Ronaldo, 37, only made a fairytale return to Old Trafford last summer following very successful spells at Real Madridand Juventus, but he is said to be considering his future now that the transfer window is open.
Man United endured a shocking campaign last season – their worst in Premier League history. The Red Devils recorded only 16 wins, scored 57 goals and picked up just 58 points as they finished sixth, a staggering 35 points behind title-winners Man City.
As a result, Ronaldo reportedly told the Old Trafford club that he wants to be allowed to leave should a suitable offer come in for him.
The report adds that Ronaldo is confident he still has three or four years left in him at the very top level and wants to represent a team capable of winning trophies.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner still has the utmost respect for Man United, but seemingly doesn’t want to be part of Erik ten Hag’s rebuild, which could take years.
