'Blow to Manchester United Fans' as Christiano Ronaldo Hints out Leaving Manchester United Soon

The news that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United this summer has dealt Erik ten Hag a devastating blow.

According to Duncan Castles, who wrote an article for The Times, the Portuguese icon wants out of Old Trafford just a year after he rejoined the team.

Last season, Ronaldo was able to score 18 goals in the Premier League.

But the Red Devils' terrible season was what ultimately put them in the Europa League spots.

Ronaldo's decision to leave the club was greatly influenced by this because he wants to compete in the Champions League the following year.

It was never going to be easy for Cristiano Ronaldo to start for Manchester United in the Europa League because he was the competition's leading scorer.

The striker has urged the team to embrace any lucrative offers from other teams.

Last month, the player's agent, Jorge Mendes, met with executives from Chelsea and Bayern Munich to discuss potential transfers for the player.

According to the aforementioned article from Castles, the 37-year-old still thinks he will play at the highest level for "three or four years."

He wants to use them at a club where he can advance both personally and as a member of the club.

The offensive player no longer sees a future with the Manchester team.

Ronaldo's close pals have also stated that he still has a great deal of love and respect for the team that helped him develop into a star while playing for Sir Alex Ferguson.
