According to Metro UK, it emerged earlier in the weekend that Ronaldo had informed United that he wanted to depart due to his desire to continue playing in the Champions League.

Man United want Serge Gnabry to replace Ronaldo

Whereas the Red Devils are committed to keeping the 37-year-old at all costs, reports in the UK suggest that a potential replacement has already been found in the form of winger Gnabry.

The Sun claims that United have identified the former Arsenal winger as an ideal player to fill Ronaldo's boots at the Theatre of Dreams.

However, the Ten Hag-tutored side are likely to face competition from a number of clubs in their pursuit of the Bayern Munich star, with rivals Man City reportedly keen on a deal.

The development surrounding Gnabry's transfer comes just days after it was reported that he had turned down a new deal with Bayern worth just over £ 200,000 a week.

Once regarded as an Arsenal flop, Gnabry has developed into an elite winger since joining Bayern, scoring 64 and assisting 40 over the last four seasons with the Bundesliga giants.

Arsenal fans want Serge Gnabry re-signed

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Arsenal fans have urged the club to consider making a move for Bayern ace Serge Gnabry after a transfer deal for Raphinha collapsed.

The Gunners were believed to be among the frontrunners for the signature of the Leeds ace before Chelsea hijacked the deal.

The Blues have reportedly agreed a £60million fee with Leeds to sign Raphinha this summer.
