The Portuguese superstar might leave Old Trafford as soon as this summer.

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly asked Manchester United to consider suitable transfer offers for him ahead of the next season.

Since Erik ten Hag’s arrival at United, rumours about Ronaldo’s possible exit have intensified. Earlier this month, reports around Ronaldo’s lack of confidence in United’s project emerged, with English sources claiming Chelsea are keen to add the 37-year-old to their ranks.

It seems the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has now stepped up his efforts to leave the club this summer.
According to The Times, Ronaldo has asked United to allow his departure if they received a ‘satisfactory offer’.

The English outlet claims the Portuguese superstar prefers to spend the final years of his career playing Champions League football.

Meanwhile, United’s rebuild process under Ten Hag has seemingly failed to convince Ronaldo to stay at Old Trafford. The Red Devils are yet to react to the transfer reports around Ronaldo, who was their top-scorer last season.

The former Real Madrid star scored 18 goals in his 30 league appearances for United, who finished sixth in the Premier League.

Following Romelu Lukaku’s loan move to Inter, Chelsea are in the market to sign a new forward. Let’s see if the Blues will approach United with a bid for Ronaldo in the coming days.
