This might come as a surprise to many and as good news to Manchester United fans. After weeks of speculations about Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the Red Devils, ManU manager Erik Ten Hag has confirmed that the Portuguese striker is not going anywhere. Hag reaffirmed that Ronaldo wouldn’t be leaving the squad in the last days of the transfer market on Wednesday.
Final Call: Ronaldo Will Stay In Manchester!
Since the conclusion of the previous campaign, when United failed to make the Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo has been pressing for a transfer. The top player from Portugal has made it known that he wants to move on from Old Trafford before the transfer market closes. But he is running out of time to find a new home. It appears that he will have to endure remaining at United for a little while longer, given that the window closed on Thursday and there were no bids on the table. Ronaldo’s future at United is now even less secure thanks to the Tuesday acquisition of Brazilian forward Antony from Ajax.
Ronaldo’s attempts to leave United and play for a team in the Champions League are about to come to an end as the deadline for transfers on Thursday approaches.
The top clubs in Europe have been unwilling to make bids on Ronaldo. The most recent reports have him linked to teams like Sporting Lisbon, where he previously played. Also, Napoli and Marseille were also in the race. Ronaldo made his league debut in United’s dismal 4-0 loss at Brentford this season.
Before the window might reopen and provide him the chance to transfer, he has another five months to spend in Manchester. As for keeping Ronaldo at the club, Erik ten Hag has consistently stated that he wants to do so. And on Wednesday, he gave his word that he will. While talking in a press conversation, Erik Ten Hag stated, “It’s clear, of course. We need quality players. You need more and to cover all the games to keep the consistency going. That’s what we strive for.”
According to reports, United would pay Ajax a fixed fee of £80.6 million. Plus an additional £4.2 million in add-ons for the 22-year-old, who has not yet undergone a physical. According to Ten Haag, who confirmed this, Martin Dubravka from Newcastle is anticipated to join. According to reports, the goalie passed his physical. In what has been a hectic window for the 20-time English champions, Ten Hag suggested more acquisitions are unlikely with Dubravka ready to seal a move to United.
