Last week, several reports claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo might consider leaving Manchester United after the end of this season. The Portuguese footballer has a contract with the United until 2023. However, the 37-year-old might consider walking away from the football club. Ronaldo has been in immaculate form for the Red Devils, scoring 24 goals this season. However, it was not enough for Manchester to secure a Champions League qualification.
Meanwhile, there will be a change of leadership with Erik ten Hag replacing Ralf Rangnick this summer as the Red Devils’ coach. The Dutch manager will work on rebuilding the team this summer, and Ronaldo might not be in his plans for the next season. Hence, Ronaldo is speculated to consider transferring to another bigger club that goes after the Champions League, with a low probability of the Red Devils’ qualification next year. Recently, David Beckham backed Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Manchester United this summer. The former English footballer made 394 appearances for the United between 1992 and 2003. Beckham hopes that rumors about Ronaldo’s exit are untrue and wants him to stay with Manchester United next season.

Beckham said it is important for Cristiano and the fans to stay with the team that has meant a lot to him. Moreover, David was sure that Ronaldo would still do his best by scoring and creating opportunities. The Englishman added that Ronaldo is doing an excellent job at his age. Beckham hoped it continues, and he stays for another year or two.”
