According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Cristiano Ronaldo will continue at Manchester United next season. With current AFC Ajax manager Erik ten Hag taking over at Old Trafford ahead of the 2022-23 season, the Red Devils will start a new era.
Cristiano Ronaldo has already turned his attention to next season, according to Romano, who also added that the forward respects the two-year contract he signed last summer:
Cristiano has not yet decided to depart. He will not cause any issues for United. He is really respectful of the club. His focus is now on the pitch. To make the finest preparations for the upcoming season. He’s only thinking about United.
Interim manager Ralf Rangnick, according to Romano, feels Ronaldo can still help Manchester United next season. They will, however, require a new center-forward to replace the five-time Ballon d’Or winner on a long-term basis.
Ralf Rangnick has previously convinced the board that Cristiano can stay with the club since he is still in good shape. Regardless of what happens to him, they require a striker. “
According to reports, Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Manchester United in the summer if they do not qualify for the Champions League. Despite United’s terrible league form this season, it now appears that the 37-year-old attacker will continue at Old Trafford.
As things stand, the Red Devils are unlikely to finish in the top four this season. They are currently in sixth place in the rankings, with 58 points from 36 games. United sit five points behind Arsenal in fourth place, with two games in hand. Cristiano Ronaldo has enjoyed another productive season as a goal scorer. This season, the Portuguese forward has scored the most goals for Manchester United.
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to finish his first season back in the Premier League without a title despite his great goalscoring form. The Red Devils had a dismal overall season, exiting all three cup competitions early and suffering from league consistency.
