Man United: Ronaldo could leave this summer

Manchester United’s shocking defeat to Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon may have been the catalyst that has ruined the chances of a top-four finish and Champions League football for the club, and now new information has emerged on Cristiano Ronaldo’s future following the game.

What’s the word?

According to journalist Rob Draper, there are senior figures at Manchester United that have suggested it may be time to show Cristiano Ronaldo the door this summer.

In a report written for the Daily Mail, Draper claims that the Portuguese striker will be encouraged to leave the club at the end of the season, however, ultimately the decision will be rested on Joel Glazer and the board to make a final decision.

Bad news

There have been several reports suggesting that Ronaldo would leave the club if they didn’t qualify for Champions League football, but this new update that senior members at the club are now set to encourage the goal machine to leave could be seriously bad news for the team and the supporters.

Despite having one of the worst season’s of his career in terms of goals and assists, the all-time top goal-scorer in the history of football is still the top scorer this season for Manchester United with 18 goals and three assists in 34 appearances in all competitions.

In fact, before the Everton clash, Manchester United’s win ratio with Ronaldo in the team stood at 1.86 points but without him it was at an abysmal 0.86 points per game on average.

Should Ronaldo leave Man United?




The clear influence that the 37-year-old has had on his team this season when he has played is surely a reason for the club to encourage the player to stay and see out his second season at the club under the new manager who is set to join this summer.

With that being said, it could be out of Manchester United’s hands if Ronaldo decides that he does want to play Champions League football next season and the Red Devils don’t qualify following a failed Premier League campaign.

Thus, it will be likely that the forward’s future hangs in the balance depending on the outcome of this factor at the end of the season.
