Ronaldo Transfer Update: Manchester United coach Erik Ten Hag rejects Cristiano Ronaldo transfer, says ‘Ronaldo happy at Manchester United despite frustrations’

Ronaldo reportedly received an eye-catching offer from Saudi Arabia, but no Champions League giants made their choice after the Portuguese striker missed United’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia due to a family issue.

The striker could start just his fourth game in all competitions when United take on Omonia Nicosia in the Europa League on Thursday. Ronaldo was left on the bench for Sunday’s 6-3 derby hammering of Manchester City, prompting renewed questions about his future ahead of the trip to Cyprus.

“I never talk about my conversations with the players,” United manager Ten Hag said in his pre-match press conference. “They’re between us. That’s for sure.

“But when I tell you all the players, when you are here and you are happy or satisfied when you are on the bench, it is not a club where you should be, and especially Cristiano.

“He’s really competitive, as we all know. He’s obviously not happy when he’s not playing.

“But I’ve already said, and I have to repeat, he’s training well, he’s in a good mood, he’s motivated and he’s doing his best. That’s what we expect.”

Ten Hag thanked City manager Pep Guardiola and his team for the reality check served up at the Etihad. Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scored hat-tricks in a game that showed the gulf between Ten Hag’s side and back-to-back Premier League champions City.

“It was clearly a difficult day” said the Dutch boss.

“As always, we analyze and we do the hard work, the reality. It was a reality check, so we have to learn from it and move on.

“You always respect the opponent, but we will still stick to our philosophy, our rules, our principles.”

He added: “So thanks for the lesson from Pep and City. We will take it and we have to understand that we have to do things much better.”

Bruno Fernandes said United’s players had held a meeting after the defeat to go through “the hard things, the mistakes we made”.

“Of course we know that the game we played was not good enough for our standards, for what we have set for ourselves, for what we want to achieve this season.” said the attacking midfielder.

“We’ve failed the club totally, not just one or two players. All in all, we didn’t do enough to win the game, to get points from that game.”

Defenders Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane are among those absent for United’s trip to Cyprus. The club is second in Group E after a defeat against Real Sociedad and a win against Sherif Tiraspol.
