Cristiano Ronaldo met with Sir Alex Ferguson to discuss his Manchester United future.

 

Ronaldo and Ferguson have had regular discussions about the former’s future in Manchester United. They have reportedly been having these discussions at their respective houses in Cheshire, Manchester.

The forward was left bewildered on Saturday, as they lost 4-0 to Brighton, ruining their hopes of Champions League football next season.

The Mirror exclusively reports that Ronaldo and Ferguson have had regular discussions over cups of tea at their respective houses.

 

Ferguson was the manager who brought the footballer to Manchester United in 2003. He was also pivotal in the 37-year-old’s return to the club last summer.

It is understood that the former manager wants Ronaldo to protect his legacy by staying at Old Trafford next season.

Ronaldo is a five-time Balon d’Or winner. Although he has been struggling, he is still United’s most influential player. He has scored 24 goals in all the competitions, including hat-tricks against Tottenham and Norwich.

Manchester United is out of contention for a place at next season’s Champions League. They are also unsure of a Europa League slot. These problems have caused rumors to swell about the football star’s plans and how he may leave this summer even though he still has a year left on his contract, with the option of a third.

Ferguson and Ronaldo’s discussion has centered around how United’s season has fallen apart since the striker came from Juventus last summer.

 

The Portugal international has kept mum about his future plans. A new manager, Erik ten Hag, is taking over from interim coach Ralf Rangnick this summer.

Ronaldo hinted that he would stay to see whether he can contribute to Erik ten Hag’s vision for a greater United future after he scored in United’s 3-0 victory over Brentford.

During the match against Brighton, United’s defense failed to prevent Pascal Gross and others from scoring. Ronaldo was seen laughing in disbelief due to this.
