Man Utd to hold talks with Cristiano Ronaldo over his future after Erik ten Hag arrival, confirms Ralf Rangnick

RALF RANGNICK admits Manchester United will talk to Cristiano Ronaldo over his future as the Red Devils chase a 'couple of new strikers'.

Interim chief Rangnick confirmed that incoming manager Erik ten Hag also needs to find out if Ronaldo WANTS to stay.


Old Trafford legend Ron, 37, brilliantly netted his 23rd goal of the season to rescue a point in Thursday's 1-1 home Premier League draw with Chelsea.

The Portugal frontman has half his two-year contract remaining but sixth-placed United seem certain to miss out on a Champions League spot.

Quizzed on the ex-Juventus and Real Madrid superstar's future, Rangnick said: "This is something that we should speak about between Erik and the board and myself. 

"Cristiano has another year of contract. It is also important to find out what he wants, if he wants to stay."

When asked by Sky Sports about Ron, Rangnick added: "In the end, it's both Erik’s and Cris’s decision what they want to do. 

"It is not for me to speak about that but the performance of Cris (against Chelsea) was really great.”
