Man United chiefs deny Cristiano Ronaldo coaching role and have internal retirement belief

Published

on

Manchester United currently have no plans to offer Cristiano Ronaldo a coaching role at Old Trafford beyond his playing days, according to reports.

Recent speculation appeared to suggest the Portuguese forward was keen on embarking in a coaching role with the Red Devils once he has called time on his playing career but as of now, United are yet to discuss the proposition.

Ronaldo signed a two-year deal with the option for an additional year upon his return to the club in August from Juventus.

The 36-year-old is yet to offer any indication that he will be retiring anytime soon and he believes he is only just getting started back at United.

He wants to win the biggest prizes at Old Trafford once again and realised the current project may take time before the team can deliver silverware.

Yet it appears Ronaldo is open to the idea of coaching one day.

His son Ronaldo Jr is currently on the books with the United academy and the former Real Madrid and Juventus man is expected to focus on coaching and his son’s career once he decides to hang his boots up.

But according to The Daily Star, United do not have any plans to offer Ronaldo a coaching role at the moment.

That’s because the United hierarchy do not believe their forward will be retiring anytime soon.

It’s understood senior sources from inside Old Trafford believe Ronaldo will play on well into his 40s, meaning they are relaxed about his future with the club.

United would even be willing to extend Ronaldo’s contract beyond three seasons, permitting the move suited both parties towards the end of his deal.

Ronaldo has continued to score at a prolific rate since returning to England, netting nine times in 11 outings this season.

His manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is optimistic Ronaldo will emulate his former team-mate Ryan Giggs, by playing on well into his 40s.

He said: “I wouldn’t be surprised if he still played when he was 40, not at all, because of the way he looks after himself. That’s the key to it – and of course some genes. There must be some genes as well, some DNA in there.

“His mentality is still absolutely spot-on and that’s a desire from inside that he’s going to keep going until his head says, ‘no, I’ve given everything now.’ Hopefully, it will last a few more years. Age is never a problem.”

Ronaldo was recently asked whether he’d consider international retirement in order to prolong his club career.

But CR7 did not appear to like the question as he vowed to fight on for Portugal after winning Euro 2016 and the 2019 Nations League.

He told Sky Sports: “I want to carry on because I like to play football and I feel good to make people happy.

Before adding, when other retired stars were referenced: “But why did they retire? I think it’s not my time yet.

“It’s not what people want, it’s what I want. It’s when I feel that I’m not capable to run, to dribble, to shoot, if the power is gone… but I still have that stuff so I want to continue because I’m still motivated.

“It’s the main word – [motivated] to do my stuff, to make people happy and my family happy and the fans and myself. I want to put the level even higher.

“You speak about Portugal but in the Champions League I have the most goals, the most wins, assists… everything. But I want to carry on. I like to play football. I feel good to make people happy.”

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.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
