It’s been a far from easy summer for Ronaldo, who missed the start of the club’s pre-season campaign to stay and train on his own in Portugal.
He then missed the club’s trip to Australia, before rejoining the team on his return to the UK.
Ronaldo received his first pre-season minutes as he played halfway through the game against Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford, before making headlines for being one of the players to leave the game early, much to his chagrin by Erik ten Hag.
The 37-year-old was then left on the bench for United’s Premier League opener against Brighton at the weekend, a game they lost 2-1.
Should Ronaldo move on, United will be tasked with finding a replacement for their record in front of goal, with the forward scoring 24 goals in 38 appearances for the club in all competitions last season.
Alongside a potential transfer for Adrien Rabiot, the Red Devils have been heavily linked with a shock move for Bologna star Marko Arnautovic.
The ex-West Ham star has emerged as a surprise transfer target for Ten Hag but that interest has reportedly cooled in the past 24 hours given widespread criticism from United supporters.
With Anthony Martial currently injured and Marcus Rashford struggling for form, it is clear that the attacking situation at Old Trafford is one that needs to be sorted out sooner rather than later.
