Premier League giants Manchester United have responded to reports that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave the club.
Reports have emerged this week that Bayern Munich was interested in the player to replace Robert Lewandowski but United have rebuffed those claims.
The latest links to Chelsea have been downplayed in a recent report by CaughtOffside, with the London side not interested in signing the 37-year-old following claims from The Athletic that Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes met with new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly.
A club source while speaking to The Mirror said: “Cristiano is not for sale. We want – and fully expect – him to be with us next season.”
Transfer window’s still long, things can change… but Manchester United are clear on Cristiano Ronaldo: he’s considered not for sale, no talks now ongoing to sell him. 🔴 #MUFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 25, 2022

Ronaldo returned to United 12 months ago and has one year left on his contract and it has been said that he isn't happy with how things have gone at the club.
