Cristiano Ronaldo Wants Manchester United to Terminate His Contract So He Can Leave On A Free Transfer
As the controversy over his desire to leave Manchester United for the Champions League-plying team rages on, Cristiano remains relentless as he wants the Red Devils to terminate his current contract to enable him leave the club on a free transfer.
Ronaldo, 37, is desperate to leave Old Trafford in order to play Champions League football this season.
The 5-time Ballon d’Or winner missed United’s recent pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia after informing the club of his desire to leave.
However, as things stand, United have no intention of selling the Portuguese superstar, who still has one year remaining on his contract.
Ronaldo returned to United on Tuesday with his agent Jorge Mendes to hold crisis talks with the club.
However, those negotiations have failed to change Ronaldo’s mind and the Portugal captain has now requested to be released from his £360,000-a-week deal, according to the Daily Mail.
Ronaldo faces limited options should he leave United, with Chelsea and Bayern Munich already rejecting the chance to sign him this summer.
Atletico Madrid have also been linked with the striker but a return to the Spanish capital appears unlikely for the former Real Madrid star.
