After FIFA World Cup 2022, will Cristiano Ronaldo Leave Manchester United?

The Portuguese star opened about his second spell with Manchester United and he did not hold back, saying he felt “betrayed” by the club.

After FIFA World Cup 2022, will Cristiano Ronaldo Leave Manchester United?

Cristiano Ronaldo is going to the Qatar World Cup - his fifth and, possibly, last - with a mission in mind. To show the world he hasn't finished yet.

He is arguably the most famous No. 7, a five-time Ballon d'Or winner and has scored 117 international goals. The first goal he scored for Portugal came against Greece in Euro 2004 and the latest was a double against Switzerland in June 2022. Statistics like these prove his longevity, determination, and drive for excellence.

According to media reports, Manchester United is considering releasing the 37-year-old and replacing him with Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix. When Cristiano Ronaldo was asked if the United hierarchy were trying to oust him for the first time, the Portuguese footballer replied, "Yes.". Not only the coach, but also two or three other members of the club. "It made me feel betrayed."

The 37-year-old also charged that Manchester United has made "zero progress" since former manager Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 in a claim that indicates his frustration with the club's management.

The 2022 World Cup was Ronaldo's biggest blunder of his playing career. While it was clear he was trying to secure a move to a Champions League team, his decision to skip the Manchester United pre-season due to family issues affected his performance.

Despite this, the Portugal talisman maintained his love for Manchester United. Piers Morgan spoke with me for 90 minutes. "I love Manchester United, I love the fans, they're always on my side. But if they want to do it different… they have to change many, many things,” the player continued.

According to media reports, Cristiano Ronaldo's manner and timing of the interview left Manchester United "extremely disappointed". Although the 37-year-old opened up about his discontent with the club, he was able to stress that he wanted the best for them. It is for this reason that I come to Manchester United". Manchester United has yet to issue an official statement regarding Cristiano Ronaldo, the all-time leading goal scorer in football history.
