Cristiano Ronaldo: Striker may be allowed to leave Manchester United if Erik ten Hag backs departure

Man Utd are bottom of the Premier League after losing their first two matches; last season’s top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club is uncertain; Portugal striker not for sale and has a year left on his contract and United have the option of extending by another 12 months

Cristiano Ronaldo may be allowed to leave Manchester United this month if Erik ten Hag decides his departure would be better for the club going forward.

United’s position has not changed and Ronaldo is not for sale. He still has a year left on his contract and United have the option of extending it by another 12 months.

Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Atletico Madrid and Chelsea were still two possible destinations for Ronaldo if United change their stance and let him leave.

However, there are senior figures at both clubs who are not convinced they should sign Ronaldo.

United have suffered their worst start to a Premier League season in 101 years under new manager Ten Hag.

With an opening weekend defeat to Brighton swiftly followed by a humbling 4-0 loss away at Brentford on Saturday, United sit bottom of the table.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s United future is in serious doubt with the 37-year-old wanting to quit Old Trafford this summer in favour of joining a Champions League club.
