Ronaldo scored 24 goals and made three assists in 38 appearances in all competitions last season, but they failed to qualify for the Champions League.

The Red Devils finished sixth in the Premier League and had West Ham not bottled their match on the final day, it would have been worse for United.

It is believed that he is looking for a way out of the club, as reports now claim Napoli are one of the clubs interested in landing the Portuguese.

Soccernet reports that if such a transfer goes through, Ronaldo could form a deadly attacking pair with Nigerian striker Osimhen.

Man Utd order Ronaldo back to training

Meanwhile, Manchester United are ready to play hardball with Cristiano Ronaldo as they are not ready to release the 37-year-old from his contract at the Old Trafford club.

Ronaldo has asked the Red Devils to allow him to leave the club once they receive a suitable offer as he wants to keep playing in the UEFA Champions League.

Manchester United expect the star to resume pre-season training on Monday, July 4 at the club’s Carrington training base despite seeking a move away from the club.
