Next Manchester United boss, Erik Ten Hag, has come to a decision on Cristiano Ronaldo’s future, according to reports.
And the news, among those who hope that the Portuguese will survive beyond the summer at least, will undoubtedly raise a lot of feathers.
According to a report by Jeremy Kroos of the Daily Star, Ten Hag, who was confirmed earlier this week, has agreed a deal to take the helm at Old Trafford and has told those in a position of strength at the club that Ronaldo is not being offered by Ronaldo. In his plans:
Ten Hag has made clear to United chiefs that Ronaldo’s age and stature mean he will not be a good fit for the style of play and the approach he will be looking to implement going forward, once he takes charge in June.”
The departure of the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner in the summer, in turn, is seen as imminent, as Ronaldo, despite his age, is not expected to fall short in the nominees.

Interestingly, talk of Tin Hag’s apparent decision when it comes to Ronaldo’s future comes recently against the background of reports that the Dutchman has already identified one potential addition to the front line at Old Trafford before next season.
The player in question? Stephen Bergwijn.
according to daily MailTen Hag, after seeing efforts to lure Tottenham wide Bergwijn to Ajax last January, is empty, ready to reignite his pursuit of his compatriot, this time in Manchester.
A £20m proposal was touted, in turn, as United’s next manager began putting an early stamp on the club’s first-team setup ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
