Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister fueled rumours of the veteran attacker leaving Manchester United this summer by liking a message on social media about the idea.
This season, Ronaldo has cut a dissatisfied figure on the pitch for United. While the 37-year-old has had a good season, scoring 24 goals in 38 games, the squad has had a bad season, which reached a new low with Saturday’s 4-0 loss to Brighton.
United are now certain to have their worst Premier League season history, surpassing David Moyes’ disastrous 2013/14 campaign. Ralf Rangnick’s team has only 58 points from 37 games and is currently sixth in the table, with one game remaining against Crystal Palace on the final day of the season.
When Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford from Juventus last summer, he signed a two-year contract. However, there has been talk that he may leave the club in the summer transfer window before Erik ten Hag takes over as manager.
Katia Aveiro, Ronaldo’s sister, is completely convinced of this possibility. The 44-year-old, who has 1.2 million Instagram followers, expressed her feelings on her brother’s plight by like a post from @cr7.o lendario, a renowned Portuguese fan account, which advised Ronaldo move on to continue playing at the highest level.
“Seeing Cristiano Ronaldo in this scenario with Manchester United is heartbreaking. When translated from Portuguese to English, the caption of the post reads, “Now we are without a berth in the Champions League.”
