Ronaldo asks to leave Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United this summer amid concerns he will be unable to compete for the biggest trophies at the club.

The 37-year-old feels the urge to win even more in the twilight of his career, but is understood to feel that may not be possible at Old Trafford next season.

Ronaldo is also understood to be concerned that United are yet to make any improvements to the squad in the current transfer window.

The Portugal international respects United a lot – especially the fans – and is said to be “in love” with the club.

But this coming season will be the first in his career in which he will not play Champions League football if he stays at Old Trafford.

United do not want Ronaldo to go and are working to bring in players for new manager Erik ten Hag.

They are close to deals for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong and Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia, while they also want to sign Ajax centre-back Lisandro Martinez.

Ronaldo re-signed for United last August in a deal worth just under £20m from Juventus and scored 18 Premier League goals.

But at times he cut a frustrated figure as the team faltered under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and then Ralf Rangnick to finish sixth.
