‘Nightmare move ?’- Manchester United will let Cristiano Ronaldo leave if they fail to qualify for UEFA Champions League 

Manchester United will let Cristiano Ronaldo leave in the summer if the club fail to qualify for Champions League football for next season.

Manchester United will reportedly not stand in the way of Cristiano Ronaldo’s demands of leaving Old Trafford in the summer. It is believed that the five-time Ballon D’or winner is ready to quit the Red Devils should they fail to secure Champions League football for next season. 

Ronaldo made a blockbuster return to Manchester United after 11 year away at Real Madrid and Juventus. However the move now has been accepted as an error of judgment which was backed by both commercial factors and not letting Ronaldo join fierce rivals Manchester City. Cristiano Ronaldo was expected to transform Manchester United into Premier League and Champions League contenders. But it has all gone sideways since the start of the season for United.

Manchester United willing to let Cristiano Ronaldo leave in the summer

Manchester United’s struggle to find form this season and a poor string of results saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked and interim manager Ralf Rangnick takeover for the rest of the season. But United players have been unable to deliver high-intensity football for the whole of 90 minutes. Cristiano Ronaldo still has 15 goals for United this season but there have also been signs of wear and tear at the age of 37. It is evident that the former Real Madrid and Juventus player has a couple of seasons left in him and the striker definitely wants to play the most prestigious club competition the UEFA Champions League as he has so often made his own on multiple occasions.

Is Cristiano Ronaldo a help or a hinderance for Manchester United ?

Though the veteran striker is experiencing a goal drought at the moment but Ronaldo’s quality in front of goal is impeccable.
