Manchester United are now open to letting Cristiano Ronaldo leave in a stunning turn of events.

As per the report, the United hierachi ‘fear there might be no changes to the situation’ unless Cristiano leaves.

The Red Devils got off to a nightmare start to the league, suffering defeats to Brighton and Brentford.

Their latest slump against The Bees at the Brentford Community Stadium rang alarm bells all over, with fans calling on wholesome changes at the club.

What if United fail to replace Ronaldo?

Over the past few weeks, the Red Devils have been linked with a number of forwards in the transfer market.

From Marko Arnautovic to the likes of Mauro Icardi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, United are yet to secure a replacement for Cristiano in the event he eventually leaves.

But the club’s bosses now feel parting ways with Ronaldo could be a risk they are willing to take as they see it as a move that will greatly improve the feeling around the team.
