Ronaldo's 'amazing' Man Utd form no surprise to Park Ji-sung: It's just a  natural outcome | Sporting News Canada

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave Old Trafford this summer after negotiations with Manchester United failed to persuade the 37-year-old striker to stay, according to The Times.

After presenting his concept to Ronaldo, new manager Erik ten Hag sought to persuade the Portugal star to reconsider his choice, but it appears that United’s inability to qualify for the Champions League remains critical. Ronaldo has one year left on his deal.

While rumors stated that United had rejected Ronaldo’s request to be freed from his contract, the club had granted his advisors permission to examine prospective alternatives for a departure.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus striker scored 18 goals in 30 Premier League appearances last season and was selected to the PFA Premier League Team of the Year.

Ronaldo has been linked to Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich at various times. Atletico president Enrique Cerezo, on the other hand, deemed such a trade “practically impossible,” and sources informed ESPN earlier this month that Chelsea had ruled themselves out of contention. Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn has also stated that Ronaldo would not “fit with our ideology.”

Meanwhile, LaLiga president Javier Tebas has stated that he would welcome Ronaldo’s return to Spain.

“I don’t know if it’s viable for Atletico Madrid,” Tebas stated. “If they wanted to [sign him], certain players would have to leave. You must create room [financially] to sign a player of that caliber.”
