After an outstanding personal season, Cristiano Ronaldo was recently named Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year by Manchester United. United had a terrible season as a whole, finishing without a title and failing to qualify for the Champions League.
The Portuguese international could potentially leave the club, according to La Repubblica, who claims that the 37-year-old has asked his agent Jorge Mendes to find him a new team.
According to the source, Roma is now interested in bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to Italy.
Ronaldo is said to be dissatisfied with Erik ten Hag‘s project, and his decision has been affected by the absence of Champions League football.
Although a move to Jose Mourinho’s side appears doubtful given Roma’s lack of Champions League action next season, the article also mentions Sporting Lisbon as a possible destination for Ronaldo.
If Ronaldo leaves the club, Manchester United will have to find a replacement quickly. Regardless of whether Ronaldo leaves or not, a striker is required this summer, since Edinson Cavani‘s contract expires.
Replacing Ronaldo will be difficult since the 37-year-old continues to score goals at the highest level.
