Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United they are closer than ever to separation. It’s been a difficult situation for months, complicated since the end of last June and now becoming impossible to manage after the Portuguese star’s incendiary interview with Piers Morgan. All the work of Manchester United was demolished with Ronaldo’s words: zero progress at the club, zero ambition in investment, zero development in structures and, above all, zero respect for manager Erik ten Haag, who is described as “disappointed and furious” by people at the club.

Currently, Manchester United are ready to inform Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes that the intention is not to welcome Cristiano back to Carrington after the World Cup. The situation is very tense and Manchester United are discussing the possibility of parting with Ronaldo. For this reason, the expectation within the club is that Cristiano will leave in January and no longer projection in Carrington since the relationship with Ten Hag is now destroyed.

It is not easy to manage the situation because the club wants to maintain its power, to defend the coach and the whole project. Meanwhile, Jorge Mendes is working on potential solutions for the January transfer window as Ronaldo continues to prioritize European football’s elite over diverse experiences after rejecting a £350m bid from a Saudi club. “It’s still very early,” sources told CBS. Manchester United will also have to find a new striker, a move that was originally not in the plans for January but for June 2023.
