“Manchester United notes the media coverage regarding an interview by Cristiano Ronaldo.

It’s likely Ronaldo will never play for the club again. He didn’t get his wish to leave in the summer and his comments have seemingly done permanent damage to his relationship with Ten Hag.

A return to Sporting in January could be his way out but it’s unlikely they’ll be able to afford his astronomical wages.

Ten Hag’s team are in fifth place on the premier league table, having recovered from their poor start.  Ronaldo has contributed just one Premier League goal. He top-scored last season with 24 goals.
