Man Utd: £27m star's agent 'will push to leave' Old Trafford

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag

Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes will push for a move until the end, according to the reliable Fabrizio Romano.

It has been reported that the Portuguese forward wants to leave Old Trafford this summer, and Romano believes Mendes will keep on working to find a favourable solution for his client while the transfer window remains open.

What is the latest news involving Ronaldo?

As per Sky Sports, Ronaldo had a meeting with United at the end of July where he informed the club that he wants to depart Old Trafford, but not much has happened since then.

Mendes is struggling to find suitors for the £27m-rated 37-year-old, with Atletico Madrid one outfit who have come out and made it clear that they will not be signing him amid speculation about a potential move to the Spanish capital.

“I’ve already said this several times, I don’t know who invented the Cristiano story but I’ll tell you that it’s practically impossible that he comes to Atletico de Madrid,” club president Enrique Cerezo told El Partidazo De Cope (via Sky Sports).

Ronaldo only returned to United last year, re-signing from Juventus in a deal worth £19.8m in total, but their failure to qualify for the Champions League has unsettled the Portugal international.

What has Romano said about Ronaldo’s United future?

Romano has told GIVEMESPORT that he thinks Mendes will not give up on finding a solution for Ronaldo until the transfer market closes.

Speaking to GMS about the United star potentially departing Old Trafford this summer, the Italian journalist said: “I’m sure that his agent, as he did last summer with Juventus, will do the same this summer with Man United. He will push the club until the end to find the solution.”

Why is Mendes struggling to find suitors for Ronaldo?

If clubs were to only take quality into account, then Ronaldo would probably have a host of European giants after his signature right now.

Wayne Rooney - Manchester United

Which year did Wayne Rooney leave Manchester United?

He once again displayed his efficiency in front of goal last season, scoring 24 times in 38 outings. It is an impressive return, especially given that United, as a team, struggled during the 2021/22 campaign.

Unfortunately for Ronaldo, though, clubs are going to have to also factor in things like his age and wages, with the former Real Madrid man currently thought to be earning £480,000 a week. Those are probably just two reasons why there is not a queue for his signature.
