Cristiano Ronaldo has told Manchester United he would like to leave if they receive a suitable offer this window.
The Athletic Reported last weekend that Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly met with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes to discuss his situation and the idea of him switching to Chelsea. Bayern Munich are also thought to have been told about his situation, while Napoli are understood to be interested.
PSG are not currently among the clubs interested in pursuing Ronaldo in this window.
Now United have been told that he wants to leave, should the right bid come in from an interested club.
It is understood the view from United is that Ronaldo is not for sale this summer.
Ronaldo, 37, has 12 months remaining on the contract he signed when he rejoined United last summer from Juventus.
He scored 24 goals in all competitions last season, finishing as United’s top scorer, but was unable to help them qualify for the Champions League. A lack of Champions League football this coming season and wanting to fight for trophies is thought to be part of the reasoning behind his desire to leave.
The forward wants United to be competitive at the highest level and is said to be keen for them to match his ambition by strengthening the squad.
They have still not made a signing since Erik ten Hag’s appointment, although they are close to adding Tyrell Malacia, want Frenkie de Jong and are in the race for Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.
