Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Machester United last season as he signed a two-year contract with the possibility of additional 12 months. However, the Portuguese national’s growing frustration could lead to him leaving the Red Devils before the end of his contract. He was magnificent in his returning season for the United as he scored a total of 24 goals across different leagues. However, the Red Devils could not do better than a sixth-place finish in the Premier League and missed the chance to qualify for the Champions League next season.
The Old Trafford club sacked their manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer during the season, and Ralf Ragnick replaced him as the interim coach. However, things did not change for the United as they continued to struggle through the final stages of the season. Further, Erik ten Hag replaced Ragnick this summer and has been handed the task of rebuilding the Red Devils with several stars set to leave the club after their contract expires on June 30. However, Ronaldo is worried and frustrated about the club’s lack of progress in the transfer market. This is leaving him to consider his immediate future at Old Trafford.
The Dutch manager has not made a single signing after replacing Rack. Therefore, fans are concerned if the Red Devils would have the required players to compete with Machester City and Liverpool next season. There is no doubt that Ronaldo wants to play Champions League football and win a few more trophies before hanging his boots. However, after the United failed to qualify, their approach during the transfer window made Ronaldo question his plans for the next season. So, where will Ronaldo end up if he leaves United this summer? Keep reading ahead to find out!
