However, speaking on the Wondergoal podcast (via thisisfutbal), Romano says that Ronaldo is not desperate to leave the club, having scored 24 goals across all competitions.

“So I checked a few days ago on Cristiano’s side, how do you feel about these Manchester United rumors? With his future? What’s happening? And the answer I got was that Cristiano was not desperate to leave. Cristiano has no intention of leaving the club or being let down by the club,” said Romano.

Even so, Ronaldo is poised to endure his first titleless campaign in 12 years.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand wants Frenkie de Jong at Old Trafford. The Barcelona midfielder is tipped to leave the Camp Nou this summer, and the Red Devils are in the race for his signature.

The Frenkie de Jong situation. There has been contact with Manchester United, yes – but sources say there is no full/close agreement with Barcelona, ​​as of today. 🇳🇱 #MUFCBarça’s financial situation could affect Frenkie’s future – his priority is UCL football. Erik Ten Hag will push.

Speaking on the YouTube channel ‘Vibe with Five’ (via Sport365), Ferdinand said that De Jong would be a great addition to the club.

“I always thought he was a top player. I watched him closely during last year’s Champions League semi-final; I saw a lot of him as part of the BT team. They are saying Frenkie de Jong could be the first player to come out under Erik ten Hag, and I would say ‘yes, great signing’. He’s not big on frame, but he’s quick on the ball, dribbles very well, can get out of tight situations, makes good decisions, passes well, balances and dribbles very well,” said Ferdinand.

He continued:

“(Man United) is a team looking for players who can control the ball, control the game and get the team running in terms of balance and possession; I think he would be a good addition. He’s not a goal scorer like Bruno Fernandes, but he’s more of a man of the game. He gives you many other elements of the game that United need. “


Paddy Kenny wants Ralf Rangnick to resign

Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has been unimpressed with Ralf Rangnick’s contributions at Manchester United since taking charge. The German boss will move upstairs this summer and also take charge of the Austrian national team.

Speaking to Football Insider, Kenny thinks Rangnick should leave the Red Devils and just focus on his work in Austria.

“Well, clubs are all over the place, and you have one person doing another job. Firstly, he has done absolutely nothing to justify staying next season. I know it was agreed but the whole club needs to change, he should resign, really. Second, how can he focus on two jobs? Why does he want to stay? Surely he wants to focus entirely on his work in Austria,” said Kenny.

He continued:

“You know what people would say if Austria got off to a bad start. They will tell him to leave Man United to focus on work. I think he’s going to leave at some point this summer or next season, I don’t think it’s sustainable so I think he’s leaving. “
