And the Times report revealed on Saturday night that Ronaldo informed Manchester United management of his desire to leave the club this summer, in the event of a convincing offer.
For his part, journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed the reasons for his wish to leave: “Ronaldo wants a more ambitious project, and he doesn’t see that in Manchester United.”
Romano added: “Ronaldo’s message is clear, he wants to win titles right away.”
Ronaldo’s desire to take titles in his final years in the stadiums contrasts sharply with the plan of the new Dutch coach, Eric Ten Hag, who wants to build a young team that will compete in a long-term plan after a few years.
And the crisis began to escalate, with the Manchester United administration’s statements that Ronaldo was “not for sale” and that they wanted him to join them next season.
The crisis will escalate if genuine offers come in for the player from European clubs, putting him in a real clash with the Manchester United government.
Ronaldo also wants to compete in the Champions League, continue to break records and refuse to play in the Europa League, where Manchester United will participate next season.
Ronaldo’s mentality is focused on competing for titles until he reaches the age of 40, which he will not be able to achieve with Manchester United, which competes in the strongest league in the world, and with a “long-term” project.
The coming days will show where the conflict between Ronaldo and Manchester United will go, but the latest report announced the first round of the “led”.
