Cristiano Ronaldo ‘holds crisis talks with his agent Jorge Mendes about his Manchester United future’
Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly held crisis talks with his agent, Jorge Mendes, over his future at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo, 36, has scored 14 goals in 21 appearances since heading back for a second spell at United in the summer, but the Red Devils have been struggling in their recent games.
According to The Sun, Ronaldo fears his dream Old Trafford homecoming could end in disaster.
It’s believed Mendes, the player’s long-time agent, recently flew over to sit down with his client and discuss his concerns about United’s troubled state.
The former Real Madrid and Juventus man is understood to be frustrated with the team’s recent performances, while he has become disillusioned with Rangnick’s style of play.
A source said: ‘Cristiano is very concerned about what is happening at United. The team is receiving a lot of criticism and he knows he is regarded as one of the leaders.
‘There are quite a lot of problems and Cristiano is feeling the pressure and is very stressed by the situation.
‘He desperately wants his United move to be a success, but he is starting to recognise that winning trophies with the current setup could be a real struggle.
‘Jorge came to see him and they spent time chatting through how things are going, what they think are the problems, how they might be solved, and what the solutions may be. Nothing has been ruled out.’
