It is being claimed that Manchester United is aiming to bring a former MANU player back to the club as a striker.
However, it has taken a while for Manchester United to make such a move as the transfer window for the summer season has come to a close.
Once again, Cristiano Ronaldo has been put in a bad place as the decision by MANU to bring in an old player has come in so late.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Most Recent Match
Manchester United’s most recent match was with Brighton, where the fans hoped they will get to see Cristiano Ronaldo run wild on the field.
Unfortunately, things did not turn out to be the way the fans, as well as Cristiano Ronaldo, had expected. Instead, the player was on the bench for the entirety of the first half.
Brighton Defeated the Reds
Manchester United was completed annihilated by the seagulls as the reds found it extremely to put up a strong defensive line against their strong attack.
The aggression of the seagulls helped them score two goals against the reds. Both goals from Brighton’s end were scored by Pascal Gross in the 30th and the 39th minutes of the first half.
Ronaldo was added in the 53rd Minute
Surprisingly, Erik ten Hag gave Ronaldo a chance to play for the team when 8 minutes had already passed in the second half. The 37-year-old player substituted with Fred and tried hard to give a tough game to Brighton.
As Ronaldo entered the field, a strong momentum could be seen building within the team. The team’s game improved and Alexis Mac Allister ended up with his own goal being under pressure from the attacks.
This was the only goal MANU was able to get in their favor against Brighton in the 68th minute.
What does Hag have in Mind for Ronaldo?
From time to time, the fans have expressed their preference for Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the club. They want to watch their favorite player continue his play at the club.
However, the recent happenings in both Sunday matches are forcing the player to make his decision and leave the club for good.
The recent approach made by Manchester United for Marko Arnautovic is an indication that Erik ten Hag may be attempting to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.
If that is the case then the rumors of Cristiano Ronaldo possibly moving to RB Leipzig or Chelsea may come true. For now, Bologne is asking £13 million for Arnautovic while the club has offered somewhere around £7 million for the player.
According to the football analysts, things may become very exciting for the club in the upcoming days.
