Man Utd hit back after claims they are considering TERMINATING Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract unless attitude improves


MANCHESTER UNITED have hit back at claims they could terminate Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract if he does not change his attitude, according to reports.

United were said to have concerns about Ronaldo’s attitude and may consider terminating his deal, Sky Sports claimed.

Ronaldo, 37, stormed off the pitch after United’s 4-0 defeat to Brentford without shaking Erik ten Hag’s hand.

The Portuguese also slammed David De Gea after his two errors allowed the Bees to take a 2-0 lead.

Ronaldo was filmed waving his arms and gesticulating towards the Spanish keeper.

After the full-time whistle Ronaldo failed to applaud the travelling fans and exchanged what seemed curt words with coach Steve McClaren before quickly heading off the pitch.

However United are not said to be considering letting him go over his behaviour.

Ronaldo has reportedly asked to leave the club this summer and he sat down for showdown talks with Ten Hag and agent Jorge Mendes when he returned to Carrington last month.

The striker wishes to play Champions League football but a transfer has not materialised.

Ronaldo was offered to AC Milan and their rivals Inter but both clubs rejected the opportunity to sign the superstar.

Reported interest from Atletico Madrid and Sporting Lisbon has also not produced a move, leaving Ronaldo short of options.

At the end of July CR7 tried to take matters into his own hands by reportedly asking the club to tear up his £360,000-a-week deal, which has a year left to run.

But Ten Hag claimed Ronaldo is still very much part of his plans and has not asked to leave.

Ahead of the Brentford match the United boss said: “I deal with the players we have and we plan with him for this season and we are happy with him and we have to fit him into the team.

“So he has to come at the right fitness levels so that he can do the job that we expect him to do.

“We plan with him so we also plan around him.”
