CR7 wants Manchester United to let him quit the club if they get an appropriate offer for him this summer.
Ronaldo, 37, returned to Old Trafford from Juventus last summer.
Nevertheless, whilst he was United’s top scorer last season – and 3rd in the Premier League – the overall campaign was seen as a colossal dismay.
Man Utd finished 6th in the Premier League so got excluded on Champions League qualification.
That means Ronaldo, who has a year left on his agreement plus an optional year, faces playing in the Europa League for the very first time.
It is not something he is looking with happiness and the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner feels there could be more alluring options available to him at this spot in his career.
The former Real Madrid forward is worried, he respects United but as he steps into the final stages of his career, he wants to compete for the biggest accomplishments.
It is understood United do not appraise Ronaldo as a player who is for sale.
Whilst it would be a shock to United’s prestige if they were to lose one of the epic players they have ever had, it would also solve a few matters for new manager Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo is the highest paid player in the Premier League and his departure would create more scope within United’s summer transfer bucket.
Ronaldo is due to come back to the club for pre-season training this week. It is expected he will be on their pre-season tour to Thailand and Australia.
