CRISTIANO RONALDO STRUGGLES WITH MANCHESTER UNITED, WILL HE LEAVE?
From poor performance to ignorant youngsters, Ronaldo expressed his struggle with his current team, Manchester United.
During his second stint with Manchester United, the Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo has had a difficult time settling in at the club. He has also experienced various issues off the field.
He reportedly wants to leave the club at the end of the season. The 37-year-old player's management is reportedly worried about the team's poor performance and its current position in the Premier League.
Despite his expectations, the five-time FIFA Ballon d'Or awardee's return to the club has turned into a disaster after Manchester United started the season with poor performance.
He also noted that some of the young players at the club were not ready to listen to the advice of experienced professionals. The former United player also criticized the lack of intensity at the club's Carrington training ground.
On top of that, the Red Devils only won three out of its last seven games and are now 24 points away from the leading Premier League team, Manchester City.

Manchester United might let Ronaldo leave the Old Trafford
With poor performance, ignorant youngsters, and low training intensity, Ronaldo has been frustrated and feels out of place as the Portuguese scoring legend still wants to play until he is 40.
It's believed that the team's hierarchy has decided that they will not stand in Ronaldo's way if he decides to leave the club.
The Mirror stated that the club's hierarchy had grown increasingly convinced that buying Ronaldo was an error of judgment.
Meanwhile, United's interim manager Ralf Rangnick is convinced that his team will respond well to the pressure of facing old rivals Leeds United on Sunday. Rangnick indicated that the drama surrounding Ronaldo's departure does not affect the team's chemistry.

Ronaldo's possible club destinations
According to the report, several European clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, and Roma, have expressed their interest in signing the 37-year-old superstar.
The reports indicated that both Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are in need of attacking reinforcements this summer.
Since PSG's star forward, Kylian Mbappe, is expected to leave Le Parc des Princes for Santiago Bernabéu, the team has more reason to land Ronaldo in Paris. If Ronaldo joined Paris, he would join his eternal rival Lionel Messi and Neymar at PSG's front line.
As for Bayern, its current sole striker Robert Lewandoski has been rumored to be on Real Madrid's signing list. Should Lewandoski leave for Bernabéu, Bayern might be approaching Ronaldo to fill the void. Additionally, Bayern is set to win the Bundesliga for the 10th straight year.
Meanwhile, Roma is a less appealing destination for Ronaldo as the team has struggled to win a trophy since 2008. Moreover, with Jose Mourinho as their manager, the Italian club might not fit Ronaldo. He reportedly had a conflict with Ronaldo during their time together at Real Madrid.#THE S MEDIA #Media Milenial
