Ronaldo has endured a tough campaign with the Red Devils, having failed in his desperate attempt to leave the club during the summer. He has been dropped to the substitutes’ bench for the last four Premier League games, having failed to score in the top-flight this term.
The former Real Madrid goalscorer bagged his first of the season in United’s Europa League victory over Sheriff before the international break. He scored from the penalty spot in the 2-0 win, and is building his fitness following a disrupted pre-season.
Ronaldo was keen to leave United over their failure to qualify for the Champions League. However, there were few clubs who saw a deal for the £500,000 per-week man as financially viable.
