Erik ten Hag has long insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale, but has changed his mind. The Dutchman is now open to a departure of the Portuguese, reports The Times. Ten Hag also seems to be done with Ronaldos attitude.
This is reported by quality newspaper The Times. Ronaldo is now allowed to leave Ten Hag, while that was unnegotiable for this. De Tukker has always maintained that Ronaldo was not for sale. The Dutch manager is dissatisfied with Ronaldos behavior around the United team and his motivation, writes the newspaper.
The Manchester United club leadership seems to have the floor. It is up to them to determine whether Ronaldo is indeed leaving, but if it is up to Ten Hag, that will happen. The Portuguese wants to go to a club that plays in the Champions League, but his management wonders if club management gives the green light for a transfer.
In England, it has been about the future of Ronaldo, who already indicated that he wanted to leave before the season. His contract continues for one more season. Ronaldo stood out in a negative way last Saturday by ignoring his teammates and Ten Hag after the game against Brentford, who was lost 4-0. Ronaldo would also isolate himself from his teammates.
🔺 UPDATE: Erik ten Hag has shifted his stance on Cristiano Ronaldos request to exit Manchester United and is open to selling the Portugal international in the transfer window https://t.co/LM1wKntm6z
