Ronaldo’s summer departure would have a significant impact on United’s performance on the field after his impressive efforts throughout the 2021/22 season, but the club would also suffer significant off-field consequences. According to the Mirror, club sponsors such as Team Viewer, who are entering their second season on the front of the shirt, are dissatisfied with the 37-year-old striker’s desire to leave. With his signature number seven, Ronaldo, one of the greatest footballers of all time, has become an iconic brand, so sponsors understandably want to capitalize on his global pull. His sensational Old Trafford return last summer shocked the football world, and United recouped his £12 million transfer fee within days of the transfer’s completion. Since rejoining, he has headlined many of the Red Devils’ social media and brand campaigns, allowing them to thrive commercially despite a disastrous season. According to the report, United’s sponsors, particularly those based in the Far East, want Ronaldo to stay for as long as possible so they can take advantage of his unrivaled reach. However, with two weeks until the start of the 2022/23 season, the Portugal international’s situation remains unresolved. NEWS FLASH: Erik ten Hag, manager of Manchester United, admits that the draw with Aston Villa taught him a lesson. Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit stance will not benefit Manchester United’s sponsors. (GETTY) It’s also claimed that United made an intriguing move to entice Ronaldo to stay in M16 beyond 2023. The club is said to be willing to let him go on loan this summer if he agrees to a one-year extension to the two-year contract he signed in 2021. Atletico Madrid appears to be Ronaldo’s most likely destination, with the club eager to accommodate his desire to return to the Spanish capital. Any move will be determined by the futures of Alvaro Morata and Matheus Cunha, both of whom could leave the Wanda Metropolitano this summer. Arsenal manager Arteta is expected to lose his job following a £120 million spending spree. Manchester United are willing to let Cristiano Ronaldo go on loan. (EXPRESS) Ronaldo missed United’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia due to family obligations, but he has been photographed preparing for the new season on social media. Erik ten Hag and his team are expected to return to Carrington next week, so the status of the wantaway forward is unknown. Anthony Martial is expected to start the new season as Ten Hag’s first-choice striker after putting in strong performances as part of a fluid attack in United’s four pre-season games so far. And, with the Dutchman eyeing an attacking signing in the coming weeks, despite his public stance, he may be willing to do without Ronaldo.
