Erik ten Hag ‘gives green light for Man United to offload Cristiano Ronaldo’
Incoming Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has given the green light for the club to offload Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, according to a report.
The Ajax manager has reportedly agreed a deal in principle to take charge at Old Trafford at the end of the season, and with a big summer ahead at United, plans are already being made regarding the transfer market.
One of the biggest situations to address is the situation of Ronaldo, and according to the Daily Star, the incoming manager has approved of the potential sale of the 37-year-old.
It is reported that Ten Hag believes that the Portuguese forward would not suit the style of play that he wishes to implement at United, as well as his belief that he would not fit into the long term plans that he would like in place.
Despite netting 18 goals across all competitions so far this season, it has been a largely frustrating season for both Ronaldo and his employers, as United occupy seventh place in the Premier League table and will endure a fifth consecutive campaign without a trophy.
Ronaldo made the move back to Manchester from Juventus in a deal worth around £12m last summer, signing a contract until June 2023.
