Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly turned down a potential move to Inter Miami in favour of remaining with Manchester United, where he could become the team’s new captain.
David Beckham‘s club had explored the chances of luring his old friend to the US in a bid to boost the team’s performance and brand, according to The Daily Star.
However, it looks to be a non starter with United informing them that he is not for sale.
Manchester United have no desire to sell star forward Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of next season
David Beckham’s club reportedly explored the chances of luring his old friend to the US
The Old Trafford side have no desire to sell the 37-year-old despite the fact he is understood to be frustrated at their lack of progress and his agent Jorge Mendes meeting clubs such as Chelsea and Bayern Munich over the past week to test the demand in the market.
Ronaldo scored 24 goals last season and, though he has been criticised for being unable to sustain a pressing game, still sets a high example to the players around him at United.
And The Mirror are reporting that Erik ten Hag is considering making him captain in place of Harry Maguire.
New manager Erik ten Hag is considering giving harry Maguire’s armband to Ronaldo
Maguire came under a lot of criticism last season and removing the armband could help to alleviate some of the pressure on him.
Ronaldo was deeply disappointed by last season and the decisions taken by United after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure last November.
The Portuguese superstar still cares deeply about the club and wanted it to take bigger and quicker strides forward. Instead progress was hindered by the interim appointment of Ralf Rangnick and subsequent divisions within the dressing room.
Erik ten Hag wants to play an attacking style and sees Ronaldo playing a key role despite the fact he is looking to bring in another forward and lower the age of the squad.
