Ronaldo’s complaint to his agent, Jorge Mendes, regarding the Man Utd situation that is not pleasant for the superstar has been circulating a few days ago.
Now Ronaldo is even linked with Barcelona. Sport said the possibility of Ronaldo wearing the Blaugrana shirt was open because Mendes had good relations with the club’s top brass, namely the president Joan Laporta and one of the directors Mateu Alemany.
Apart from the situation at Man Utd, rumors of Ronaldo this time were also heated by Barcelona’s need for a player who could score goals.
Ronaldo came back to Old Trafford at the start of the 2021/2022 season from Juventus. The Portugal captain has a contract until mid-2023.
Since making his debut on September 11, Ronaldo has made 21 appearances for Man Utd this season. Ronaldo has contributed 14 goals and three assists in various competitions for the Red Devils.
Ronaldo’s presence could not stabilize Man Utd, even Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to leave the coaching position.
The arrival of Ralf Rangnick as the new coach of Man Utd, replacing Solskjaer, did not necessarily improve the performance of the club that once controlled the English League.
After arriving on December 2, the German coach has taken charge of seven Man Utd matches which ended with four wins, two draws and one defeat.
Man Utd are now ranked seventh in the Premier League with 31 points or 22 points adrift of Manchester City who lead the standings.
Apart from being far from the top of the standings, Man Utd are also still four points adrift of Arsenal who are ranked fourth or the deadline for the Champions League.
