Erik ten Hag would have done it without her… Barely at the helm of Manchester United, the Dutch coach had to storm Cristiano Ronaldo. As reported by The Times on Saturday and confirmed by RMC Sport, the Portuguese star has asked to be allowed to leave the club this summer if there is a tempting offer. The 37-year-old would like to play in the Champions League, which will not be possible this season because the Red Devils will participate in the European League.

Ajax is too greedy for Anthony
This request clearly does not fit Ten Hag. according to womanThe coach urgently requested his management to appoint a replacement if CR7 left Manchester. Anyone who could bear the heavy responsibility of succeeding the number 7 was already targeted.
