Info RMC Sport – As reported by the Times, RMC Sport confirms that Cristiano Ronaldo has asked Manchester United to be allowed to leave the club in the event of a satisfactory offer during the summer transfer window. According to our information, Chelsea have taken information on the player’s situation, which is also of interest to Bayern Munich and Napoli. For the moment the Red Devils have not offered any exit voucher to their striker.

An absence of the Champions League that goes badly

The Portuguese remains very attached to United and its supporters but he is aware that he is living his last years of activity at the top level. His ambition remains intact: the Portuguese wants to evolve in a team which has the conditions to win trophies, like the Champions League.

So far Ronaldo has featured in 19 consecutive Champions League seasons since leaving Sporting Lisbon for English football in the summer of 2003, setting records for appearances (183), goals (140) and assists decisive (42) in the most prestigious of European competitions. He has never played in the Europa League, which United will enter this season after finishing sixth in the Premier League.

A late recruitment at United

Ronaldo, 37, is under contract with Manchester United for an additional season. He had arrived at his former club last summer, from Juventus, in a transfer that had punctuated the summer across the Atlantic. At United, he scored 24 goals in all competitions last season, finishing as United’s top scorer, but couldn’t help the club qualify for the Champions League.

The striker wants United to be competitive at the highest level and some media are reporting he is unhappy with new manager Erik ten Hag’s playing plan. The club are yet to make any signings, although they are close to signing Tyrell Malacia, want Frenkie de Jong and are in the running for Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.
