Man United Mercato: After the victory against Brentford (3-0), Ralf Rangnick told the British press that Cristiano Ronaldo would not leave this summer.
Man United Mercato : Cristiano Ronaldo will stay according to Rangnick
What if Ralf Rangnick finally dropped a bomb? Manchester United‘s interim coach, who will leave his place to Erik ten Hag by the end of the season, has told several British media that the Portuguese striker will not pack his bags this summer. “He still has a year left on his contract and as far as I know he will still be here next season,” said Ralf Rangnick, after Manchester United‘s 3-0 win over Brentford at Old Trafford on Monday.
However, many observers believed that the Portuguese striker would not be part of the game plan of Erik ten Hag, the new coach of the Red Devils, adept at high and intense pressure. So much so that his departure was seriously considered, while the contract of the Portuguese tied him until June 2023 with Manchester United.
A more than honorable season
However, Cristiano Ronaldo‘s performances with the Manchester club are always commendable. Although he failed to prevent the elimination of his team in the last 16 of the Champions League against Atletico Madrid, Ronaldo is still very effective in front of goal. With 24 goals and 3 assists in 38 appearances in all competitions, the Portuguese striker has simply set a record at the age of 37: no player had scored so many goals at his age over the last 30 years.
After a difficult beginning of the season, which logically led to many rumors about his future at Manchester United, CR7 is again in great shape with 6 goals scored in the last 4 games of the Red Devils in the Premier League. If the Champions League seems impossible to reach at the end of the season, 6th with 5 points behind the 4th Arsenal, with 2 more games, no doubt that Erik ten Hag will think twice before making a decision for Cristiano Ronaldo.
