Erik ten Hag has reportedly had a change of heart regarding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Man United and is now open to letting the wantaway forward to leave..
The 37-year-old’s future at Old Trafford has been up in the air ever since he declared his intention to quit the club earlier in the summer following their failure to qualify for the Champions League.
Ten Hag – who became the club’s first manager in 101 years to lose his first two games following their 4-0 hammering at Brentford on Saturday – has remained adamant throughout the transfer window Ronaldo remains part of his plans for this season.
But The Athletic claim the 52-year-old has now changed his mind and is open to letting Ronaldo leave, citing his difficult reintegration back into the squad after he missed most of pre-season due to family reasons.
The report claims since returning to the fold, there have been days where Ronaldo sits by himself during lunch at the canteen at their Carrington training ground.
The same outlet reports there have also been instances of him flapping his arms about in training and trying to argue against the high-pressing approach implemented by ten Hag.
The news comes with Sportsmail understanding that while Ronaldo is said to be training well, he exchanged words with Ten Hag’s No 2 Steve McClaren at the final whistle after refusing to applaud United’s travelling fans, and there is a feeling that his mood is having a negative effect on the dressing room.
However, United have dismissed suggestions that Ronaldo’s contract could be cancelled, and reiterated that he is staying at the club.
