It became known that the famous Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo does not want to continue playing for Manchester United.
Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes held meetings with United at Carrington on Tuesday, but his position remains unchanged and he wants to play for a club in the Champions League and win major trophies.

However, the club does not want the player to leave and Ronaldo began training with the team, missing the club’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia due to family reasons.
Its potential elsewhere is limited. “There was a Chelsea option, but more of an active one, while Bayern Munich and Atlético Madrid seem to have publicly ruled themselves out this week.
Atlético Madrid fans are known to have displayed a banner reading “CR7s are not welcome” at Wednesday’s pre-season friendly.
Ronaldo has expressed his desire to leave the club, but he is running out of options and it looks like he really will have to stay. He may try to turn things around when United opt out of a 25 per cent pay cut in his contract.
Chelsea turned down the Ronaldo deal, as did Bayern Munich, Napoli and many other elite clubs that Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo’s agent, tried to sell him to.
“The offer from Saudi Arabia is one of the best, but in the end it does not give Cristiano Ronaldo what he wants, which is the legacy. He wants to achieve Champions League records that he believes no one else will be able to achieve in the future.”
“He wants to sign a contract at the highest level. Now it looks more and more like he will have to stay at Manchester United because there is no place in big clubs.
Ronaldo really doesn’t have many options. He really wants to compete at the highest level so if he does go to Saudi Arabia it goes against everything he said and everything we actually know about him and his career.
Manchester United have always been very calm and comfortable. They insisted that he was not for sale and that he would live until the end of the year of his contract. How they will proceed, we will see, but Ronaldo keeps his form. So they have no questions, concerns or concerns about how he will report before the start of the season.
What will happen next with the player is still unknown. It remains only to wait for news.
