Cristiano Ronaldo’s rage is boiling over at Man United after new details come to light

Published

Cristiano Ronaldo’s rage at Manchester United appears to be boiling over after new details came to light on Thursday.

The Portugal international has struck nine times for the Red Devils this term following his arrival from Juventus. But all doesn’t appear good behind the scenes at Old Trafford.

United re-signed Ronaldo on deadline day, bringing the veteran home from Juventus after 12 years away.

And he’s certainly lived up to expectations so far, scoring nine goals across all competitions to keep Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a job.

Unfortunately, however, Ronaldo’s unhappiness at United appears to be growing.

He was furious at being dropped in the 1-1 draw with Everton in October, where he was benched for Edinson Cavani.

Though Solskjaer downplayed the incident, it’s telling he’s not demoted the 36-year-old in the time since. Clearly, a message was received behind the scenes.

Then, Ronaldo was angry in the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

He had every right to be. The Red Devils were abysmal that day, toiling as Mohamed Salah exploited their leaky backline time and time again.

Ronaldo appeared to mock Solskjaer’s tactics during the defeat at Old Trafford and, as his temper rose, he was fortunate to avoid a red card for a tackle on Curtis Jones.

But, now, more alarming details have leaked.

The Independent have claimed Ronaldo is furious, in no uncertain terms. The language once source used had an expletive in, such is the 36-year-old’s unhappiness.

It’s stated that he’s been talking to team-mates from his first spell at United, complaining about how things have changed.

And that tallies with claims he’s been left shocked and stunned by the dip in standards in the years since Sir Alex Ferguson walked away.

Now, with Ronaldo unhappy, it’ll be interesting to see how the Glazers react to this latest development.

They’ve so far held fire when it comes to sacking Solskjaer, with the Americans determined to give him time to turn things around.

But if Ronaldo is unhappy, that simply won’t do.

And with links to Brendan Rodgers intensifying, and interest in Luis Enrique and Erik ten Hag known, it’ll be curious to see what they do next.

Ronaldo has been the one shining light of United’s season so far.

And, if things continue to get worse, it’s possible the Portugal international will walk away for a second time.

Especially if they have no Champions League football to offer.

Ronaldo was also livid during the international break as Portugal missed out on automatic qualification for next year’s World Cup.

Yet whether he can use the pain to scale new heights is something ultimately only time will tell.

Meanwhile, ahead of United’s clash with Watford, Solskjaer has been defended by former team-mate Andy Cole.

“The flak that Ole gets disappoints me,” he said.

“I don’t think any manager should take that kind of flak; whether it’s United or non-league.

“I think they are trying to work to the best of their ability. He’s trying like everybody else who tried previously.

“Whether he is my ex-team-mate or not, even if it was someone I didn’t know, I wouldn’t like people to talk about them like that.

“But I don’t like it because when I played with him I got on very well with him. To see him in this position now doesn’t sit well with me.

“We all want Manchester United to be back where they were, but that takes time.

“We can talk about ‘how much longer?’ But the previous managers have found themselves in the same position. The stick that Ole takes is, at times, not nice.

“Things are never going to be easy for a club like Manchester United. To succeed Sir Alex Ferguson was always going to be difficult for whichever manager takes over.”

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

Man United facing two-way transfer problems as Erik ten Hag looks to offload six stars

Published

By

Manchester United are focused on trying to bring in at least three new signings before deadline day to halt a season already mired in crisis.

But offloading existing players has become just as problematic for United as persuading new names to join Erik ten Hag’s abject side, which currently sits rock-bottom of the Premier League.

United want to get rid of at least six players – Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Axel Tuanzebe, James Garner and Brandon Williams – before deadline day in a fortnight’s time.

But so far there have been no takers for United’s cast-offs, with many on such exorbitant wages or simply not considered good enough for other clubs to decide to take them on.

Although United managed to sell Andreas Pereira to Fulham for £8.5million and send Alex Telles out on loan to Sevilla for the season, shifting other players to raise funds is proving tricky.

Bailly, who failed to even make the nine-man bench for ten Hag’s first two United games, has been told he can leave, but no club has so far made a firm move for the 28-year-old defender.

West Ham, Marseille and Monaco have all expressed interest in the Ivory Coast international, but with two years left on a deal worth £100,000-a-week, Bailly’s wages are proving a stumbling block.

Those clubs interested in Bailly want to take him on loan, with United continuing to pay a significant chunk of his wages. It is a similar story with most of the players United want to jettison.

United, in contrast, want a permanent sale, to raise revenue to reinvest in the players ten Hag needs to bolster his squad after beginning his tenure with defeats to Brighton and Brentford.

Bailly’s situation is indicative of the lack of effective leadership at United, which has seen the club hand lucrative, long-term contracts to players who have barely featured in recent seasons.

In the case of Bailly, he signed a contract extension in April 2021, keeping him at United until 2023, with the option for a further year. Yet since signing that new deal, Bailly has made just eight Premier League appearances and has not made a competitive appearance for United since December last year.

It is a familiar story with Jones, who in February 2019 penned a new deal until 2023, with an option for an extra year, but in that time has made just 21 appearances. There has been little interest in Wan-Bissaka, bought from Crystal Palace for £50m in 2019 under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but who has been told by ten Hag to find a new club.

Yet while United are struggling to persuade players to come to Old Trafford, getting them out of the door is proving just as taxing, symbolic of a club in decline and without any coherent strategy.
