Cristiano Ronaldo won't wear Man United shirt again after update - pundit

Frank McAvennie has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo won’t play for Man United again.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Premier League striker doesn’t understand how United couldn’t “get the best out of” Ronaldo.

According to Spanish outlet AS (1 August), the 37-year-old is looking for a resolution to his situation with United before their season kicks off on Sunday (7 August).

The Portugal international is said to be hopeful of finding a new club before the weekend.

Ronaldo played his first minutes under new manager Erik ten Hag in a pre-season friendly against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday (31 July).

McAvennie is uncertain whether Ten Hag can get the most out of the United side this season.

The new manager is trying to form them into a team but they’ve been there tried and tested,” he told Football Insider.

“The players at Man United who have been there for years still can’t do it every week. They play well sometimes but if you’re playing for Man United you’ve got to do it every single week. The fans demand that.

So I think it’s going to be an ongoing saga with Ronaldo. I don’t know how it’s going to end. I think he’ll go. I don’t think he’ll play for Man United, I don’t think he’ll take that jersey on again. How they couldn’t get the best out of Ronaldo I don’t know.
