Manchester United denies possible termination of Cristiano Ronaldo contract

While Sky Sports announced that Manchester United would consider terminating Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract, which runs until next summer, the Red Devils have denied the information and assure that they are counting on the Portuguese this season.

Manchester United don’t want to get rid of Cristiano Ronaldo. Contrary to what was announced by Sky Sports , the Red Devils told the Manchester Evening News that the information that the club would be ready to break the contract of the Portuguese if he did not change his behavior, is false. The five-time Ballon d’Or is not in discussion for a possible contract termination. MU’s position would even be unchanged, knowing that management wants to keep it.

During the heavy defeat at Brentford on Saturday (4-0), CR7 appeared quite annoyed when returning to the locker room. Except that his attitude would not have been appreciated in high places either. This is how Sky Sports reported that the management of Manchester United would have liked the Portuguese striker to review his behavior. Under penalty of terminating his contract, which runs until next summer.

A restless summer

Returning with great fanfare last year, after freeing himself from his commitment with Juventus, Ronaldo showed himself at the level last season (24 goals and 3 assists in 39 appearances, all competitions combined). But MU finished in sixth place in the championship, without managing to qualify for the Champions League. A situation that prompted the 37-year-old star to seek a new challenge during this transfer window.

After missing the summer preparation for “family reasons”, Cristiano Ronaldo had “shown off” for his return against Rayo Vallecano in a friendly match, where he slipped away before the final whistle. A behavior denounced by Erik Ten Hag. 

“I certainly do not accept this, I think it is unacceptable. For everyone. We are a team and you have to stay until the end.”
