Incoming Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, wants Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the club next season, according to the UK Telegraph.
Ten Hag plans to make the 37-year-old a key part of his new-look team next season.
Ronaldo rejoined United last summer, but his future has become a matter of intense speculation.
Despite the Red Devils’ poor campaign, Ronaldo has managed to score 24 goals in all competitions.
With no Champions League football on offer next season, however, Ronaldo is yet to make a definitive decision on his future.
Ronaldo still has over 12 months to run on the two-year deal he signed last August and Ten Hag wants to retain the Portugal captain’s unique goalscoring talents, even if he may not be ideally suited to the style of football he wishes to implement.
