Cristiano Ronaldo unsure of Manchester United future due to lack of transfer activity


Cristiano Ronaldo is in the twilight of his career, but that doesn’t mean his thirst for winning trophies has diminished.

The striker has welcomed the appointment of Erik ten Hag as the new Manchester United head coach, following the negative experience of Ralf Rangnick’s short tenure. Ronaldo returned to United in the summer of 2021 aiming to repeat his former glories at Old Trafford but the season proved to be a nightmare as the Red Devils finished 35 points behind Premier League champions Manchester City.

Ronaldo concerned about lack of transfer activity at United

The future doesn’t look much brighter for United, given the signings their rivals are bringing in and the slow start the club have taken to the summer transfer window. The current situation is a source of concern for Ronaldowho does not want to spend his last season, or one of his last seasons, playing in a team where he has no chance of adding new medals to his collection.

Forward now has doubts about seeing the contract

The Portugal captain, 37, was determined to complete the remaining 12 months of his two-year contract with United, despite the team’s failure to qualify for the 2022/23 Champions League. However, he now has doubts. The arrivals of Erling Haaland from City and Darwin Núñez from Liverpool, among other deals agreed this summer, have left Ronaldo worried that the gap between United and their rivals could be even wider next season.

Ronaldo wants the players in, but it doesn’t look like United are preparing to undertake the squad overhaul that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner deems necessary. That’s the conclusion that can be drawn from the recent expletive-laden video that emerged of United CEO Richard Arnold telling fans the club ‘f***ing burned money’.

It remains to be seen what signings United will ultimately make over the next couple of months, as Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford will largely depend on the club’s activities.
