Man Utd: Erik ten Hag named Cristiano Ronaldo’s replacement after his sudden transfer request

Cristiano Ronaldo is said to want to leave Manchester United if an appropriate deal comes his way. If the Portuguese veteran severed ties with the Red Devils, new manager Erik ten Hag will put the club under pressure to find a surprise successor.

According to The Times, Cristiano Ronaldo has said that if Manchester United receives the proper offer during the transfer window, he would want to leave this summer. If he continues at Manchester United, he will miss no UEFA Champions League games for the first time in 20 years.

After winning Europe’s premier club event five times, the Champions League’s all-time leading scorer does not want to spend a season in the Europa League. Jorge Mendes, the forward’s agent, will submit a formal request to Manchester United to release the player if a UCL club interested in acquiring him makes a suitable offer.


Erik ten Hag has been given a big blow ahead of his debut season as manager with the announcement that CR7 may not play for the Red Devils next season. The loss of Edinson Cavani, as well as the signings of Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez by their main rivals, Manchester City and Liverpool, may force United to scramble.

Manager Erik ten Hag is looking for a replacement striker, despite the fact that Manchester United clearly do not want to transfer the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. Furthermore, the 37-year-old Portuguese international has few options in terms of clubs willing to pay him.

According to the magazine, a meeting between the player and Erik ten Hag is planned for Monday, when the player will resume his pre-season training.

Ten Hag will use this opportunity to discover whether or not his striker is willing to fulfill his contractual commitments. Regardless of the result, the Dutch coach has already urged the club to step up their pursuit of Ajax’s Antony, who is seen as Ronaldo’s replacement despite his position as a winger, according to The Mirror.

According to reports, the 22-year-old would want to reconcile with his previous mentor in England. Lisandro Martinez might be on his way to Manchester United from Ajax this summer as the Eredivisie club loses many key players. According to estimates, Antony is now worth £69 million, but Ten Hag will put pressure on Old Trafford authorities to make a deal if Possible.
