Man United is in a precarious position following a 1-2 loss to Brighton in the first match of the new season and the focus of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has even divided internal 'Red Devils'
Manchester United are off to an unusual start to the new season. The arrival of new coach Erik Ten Hag is still insufficient to put a smile on the “Red Devils'” faces. Mr. Ten Hag will have a lot of work to do in the team’s reform after a 1-2 defeat to Brighton in the Premier League’s first round.
The internal situation at MU is also very confusing, according to the British press. MU players, in particular, are dissatisfied with the situation of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Many teammates were distracted and uneasy because of CR7’s uncertain future.
According to The Sun, some players believe Ronaldo will leave MU to put an end to the current situation. After announcing his desire to leave because MU did not have tickets to the Champions League, the 37-year-old star has inspired many other players.
Despite the fact that CR7’s agent Jorge Mendes has done everything possible to find him a new club, the Portuguese striker has yet to find a new home. In light of the fact that the new season has begun, Ronaldo’s future remains a major unknown.
“Many of Ronaldo’s MU teammates are becoming concerned about his future. Some teammates back Ronaldo, but there are many stars who are fed up with this striker’s attitude “The Sun confirmed the news. After missing MU’s entire summer tour, Ronaldo returned as a substitute in the defeat to Brighton.
Many believe that even Coach Ten Hag is anticipating Ronaldo’s future so that he can be more proactive in his shopping. Remember, the summer market is winding down, and the “Red Devils” are still racing against the clock to add 1-2 quality names to their current lineup.
MU requested the purchase of Morata, putting Fred in an awkward position.
The latest striker to be linked with a move to Manchester United is Alvaro Morata. The Spaniard’s contract with Atletico Madrid expires in a year. He has recently returned to the capital after spending two years on loan with Juventus.
According to ESPN, the La Liga team is looking to reduce its salary fund, and with United in the market for a striker, they have asked Old Trafford to bring Morata to the Premier League to play.
Morata previously fought in England’s top flight while wearing a Chelsea jersey. Nonetheless, he struggled to maintain a consistent performance. With time running out, the Red Devils may be forced to look for alternatives, and Morata is one of them.
Man United’s pursuit of Morata, on the other hand, could put Fred in a bind. Morata appeared in a pre-season friendly against Manchester United less than a week ago. Fred was given his second yellow card of the game after a collision.
The incident occurred at the last possible moment. Fred is in possession of an uncontrollable ball. The Brazilian midfielder first closed in on Morata before kicking the opponent’s leg from behind. Fred did not give up after Morata was defeated. He jumped to his feet and stomped on Morata’s thigh.
The Spaniard was quite painful while also expressing his frustration. Fortunately for Fred, players from both teams intervened in time to prevent a brawl. If they became teammates, Fred would undoubtedly find it difficult to look at Morata’s face naturally.
United began their Premier League opener without a striker on the field. Before Cristiano Ronaldo came on in the second half, Christian Eriksen served as the virtual number nine. After asking the Red Devils for permission to leave this summer, CR7’s future remains uncertain.
Man United have also struggled to close a number of deals this summer, with recent target Benjamin Sesko opting to join RB Leipzig. Antony, the Ajax star, is valued at around £80 million.
Man United have dropped their interest in Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic.
