More information Cristiano Ronaldo’s ongoing attempts to leave Manchester United have enraged several first-team players, who believe the club should allow him to leave to boost dressing room morale. The Red Devils have remained steadfast in their non-sale stance this summer, but they risk upsetting a squad that is already facing adversity at the start of the new season. Ronaldo wishes to leave United just one year after his sensational return to Old Trafford from Juventus. However, the club wants him to stay and complete the final year of his contract, which includes a 12-month extension option. According to The Sun, there is growing discontent among United players who are frustrated by Ronaldo’s transfer stance and attitude toward the club. According to a club source, some members of Erik ten Hag’s squad are “fed up” with how he has attempted to engineer a summer departure while others have worked hard to make an impression under the new manager. Ronaldo did not participate in United’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia, and he only played 45 minutes in United’s final warm-up game against Rayo Vallecano before leaving in the second half. The 37-year-old came off the bench in Sunday’s Premier League opener against Brighton & Hove Albion, but he couldn’t help United avoid a 2-1 defeat after coming on in the 53rd minute.
