Ronaldo pushed for an Old Trafford exit in the summer but was frustrated by a lack of suitors.

However, with Thomas Tuchel’s sacking from Chelsea, the landscape has changed at Stamford Bridge, while the prospect of the Portugal international star departing Old Trafford only seem to have increased as he has been persistently benched by new manager Erik ten Hag.

As a result, Ronaldo has yet to score a goal this season, even drawing a blank in last Thursday’s Europa League encounter against Real Sociedad in a 1-0 defeat.

Why Ronaldo is on the Man Utd bench
While there are signs that Man Utd will be more competitive in the Premier League this season, being on the periphery of the manager’s thinking is not going to be something attractive to Ronaldo, and The Sun reports that his team-mates believe that he is still eyeing a January exit.

According to an unnamed insider quoted by the paper, Ronaldo’s decision to miss much of pre-season has left him at a critical disadvantage compared to his Man Utd colleagues.

“The manager put a lot of work into giving the squad detailed information about what he wanted them to do and how he wanted them to play,” the source said.

“Ronaldo is not up to speed with that and is relying on instinct when he plays. But that doesn’t work in Ten Hag’s system.

“He often demands the ball too early in build-up play and drops deep for the ball, but that means when the ball is wide there is no-one in the middle to hit it into.
