Joel Glazer ‘personally involved’ in repairing Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer request from Manchester United

Manchester United owner Joel Glazer is ‘involved’ in discussions about the upcoming season at the club keeping Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese maestro has reportedly reiterated that he wants to leave Old Trafford for a team that plays in the UEFA Champions League.

However, such a move is not sanctioned by United’s hierarchy who believe they are unable to get a viable replacement in time.

United brought Ronaldo back to Old Trafford just 12 months ago and the Portuguese scored 24 goals in all competitions, which is quite impressive considering how limited United were in terms of creativity last season.

Despite his goals, United failed to finish in the top four and will be featured in the Europa League this season.

Ronaldo now wants to leave the club because he wants to play in the UEFA Champions League in the final phase of his career.

The Athletic say Glazer himself has been involved in discussions about the will to detain the attacker nonetheless.

United look at the unlimited benefits of sticking to Ronaldo Erik ten Hag has planned for his season with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ten Hag himself has repeatedly and openly stated that he wants Ronaldo to stay and says he can help the Portuguese attacker best return to his goals.

However, Ronaldo would be adamant about leaving as he wants to win the UEFA Champions League one last time.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner reportedly recently received an offer from a Saudi Arabian club that would have earned him a nine-figure salary, which was rejected by both the club and the player himself.

Meanwhile, Ten Hag is said to have disagreed with Ronaldo and some of his team-mates over their post-match behavior against Rayo Vallecano, when he left Old Trafford after they were substituted and those in the stands who left before the full whistle.

United great Louis Saha recently gave his take on the Ronaldo saga, saying: “Somehow from Cristiano Ronaldo’s point of view it’s a bit unrealistic to ask a club of this size to adapt to him and his dream.

“I’m not Cristiano, but as someone who seems to be a supporter of Manchester United, I feel like he hasn’t shown that quite enough, he’s thinking of himself.”

Saha added: “I’m not going to judge him because he’s a great player and I’m not in his position, but I would have liked him to have stayed because he’s a great player.

“No one can judge his actions at the moment because it is his own career.”

Many United fans hope Cristiano Ronaldo will be included in the squad when Manchester United face Brighton in their Premier League opener on Sunday, while others feel he does not deserve his place in the squad after this summer’s antics.
