Cristiano Ronaldo will likely remain at Manchester United past the current season, according to Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo is believed to want out of Old Trafford and move to a club that qualified for the Champions League. However, the 37-year-old’s options are dwindling, and the Red Devils seem reluctant to let Ronaldo leave, with Ten Hag now confirming he sees him as part of his plans.
He continued: “I have signed here for three years, but in football, it’s short-term as well. We have to win from the start.
“So I don’t look that far ahead. I have a strategy, it’s a process, it takes time, but in the end, we have to make sure from the outset there is a winning team.”
Ten Hag believes Ronaldo can fit into his side: “I think Cristiano is capable of doing that. In his career, he has shown everything. I have set my demands. We want to play in a certain way. A top player can contribute and Ronaldo is an absolute top player in our squad.”
Ronaldo is not on United’s pre-season tour of Australia, and he was left behind due to ‘family reasons.
