The summer transfer window is going on, and like the other top clubs, Manchester United are also busy buying players. Erik ten Hag, the new manager of Manchester United, is trying to rebuild the team. Manchester United have already played two games under Erik ten Hag as part of their pre-season tour. In the first match, Man United beat Liverpool FC, while they won the second match against Melbourne Victory. The Red Devils scored four goals in each game.

Despite winning those two games, manager Erik ten Had still believes there are many things to improve. Therefore, Manchester United are looking to sign more players in the transfer market. But before that, the club must find a solution to the Ronaldo issue.

Future of Cristiano Ronaldo

The situation between Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo has become very complicated. Cristiano Ronaldo informed Man United at the beginning of the transfer window that he would like to leave the club this summer. But the club clarified several times that Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale. However, Ronaldo missed training sessions and didn’t go with the club for the pre-season tour.

Eventually, Man United agreed to sell him on condition of the perfect proposals. There was a strong expectation that FC Bayern Munich could sign Ronaldo to replace Robert Lewandowski. So, Ronaldo’s agent contacted the German club. But Bayern’s CEO didn’t show interest in signing Ronaldo. Moreover, Chelsea are also not buying him as their manager is not interested enough. As a result, Cristiano Ronaldo is staying at Man United. In the near future, however, a perfect proposal could change the scenario.

De Jong’s situation

From the start of the transfer market, Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag showed heavy interest in signing Frankie de Jong from FC Barcelona. After a long month of negotiation, Manchester United have reached an agreement with Barcelona to sign Frankie de Jong. They are ready to pay around 85 million euros, including 10 million add-ons.

But the problem is that Frankie de Jong doesn’t want to leave Barcelona. He wants to continue at Barcelona as he has three years left of his contract at the club. However, Man United are still hopeful and are pushing for the player. But they are also thinking about the backup. Neves can be a backup if Man United fail to sign Frankie de Jong.
