Cristiano Ronaldo could leave in January after Ten Hag disrespect

Cristiano Ronaldo angled for a move in the summer, but it failed to materialize. Following the lack of game time this season, the former Real Madrid legend could leave in the winter transfer window.

Second comebacks don’t usually go to script. Perhaps it was what Florentino Perez thought about before rejecting the opportunity of bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Maybe Perez believed the Portugal international was past his sell-by date and sold him to Juventus when they arrived with a bid.

The lights have started to fade for Cristiano Ronaldo, and the all-time Champions league topscorer is not finding it funny. Looming before Ronaldo is retirement, but the champion in him forces the striker to continue to plod on. There are too many shenanigans for Ronaldo, suggesting he made a wrong decision for the first time in his career.

Ronaldo had the chance to join Manchester City, but for sentimental reasons, he opted for Manchester United. Many said he acquiesced to the pressure from Sir Alex Ferguson to return to Old Trafford. Manchester United was a sinking ship, and the ageing legs of Ronaldo are not what was needed to revive it. It has turned out to be a bad experiment for Ronaldo as his career has taken a sharp nosedive.

Lack of playing time for Cristiano Ronaldo

During the summer, Cristiano Ronaldo tried to force a move away from Old Trafford, but the quality of pickings was slim and not many clubs were willing to take a punt on the 37-year-old striker. The Portugal international saw a situation worsened by Manchester United’s stubbornness in letting him go.

Ronaldo was motivated by a desire to continue his journey in the Champions League. Aligning with failure has its effects, and Ronaldo is feeling it. Ronaldo will have to finish the last year of his contract at Old Trafford.

The current shenanigans at Old Trafford will only reinforce the desire to leave the hell hole at Manchester. Ronaldo started just one Premier League game this season, with five substitute appearances, making it 207 minutes played.

Disrespect for Ronaldo and looming January exit

The arrival of new manager Erik Ten Hag was to bring changes, but the Dutchman has been equally clueless as Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. Ten Hag praised Harry Maguire and put five-time Champions League winner Casemiro on the bench behind Scott McTominay.

The Dutch coach has extended his disrespect for Cristiano Ronaldo. During the derby game on Sunday, where the Red Devils were humiliated at the Etihad 6-3, Ronaldo did not feature. According to the Daily Telegraph, Ronaldo is fed up with the antics of Ten Hag and is eyeing a January exit. The report suggests that Ten Hag will not stand in his way if he chooses to leave.

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness said on talkSPORT that Ten Hag was disrespecting the 37-year-old. According to Souness, Ronaldo, the top scorer for United last season, can sit with any group of players.

Souness continued that the disrespect by Manchester United for arguably the best player in the world is unjustified. He wonders why they did everything to keep him, only not to use him. Souness rubbished the explanation by Ten Hag on not using the Portugal international.
