Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has decided to remain at the club for another season.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, Ronaldo trusts Man United’s hierarchy will appoint a world-class manager this summer that will take over from Ralf Rangnick, who was appointed on an interim basis.
The Portugal captain still feels committed to the Red Devils and has decided to see out the final year of his contract next season.
The 37-year-old was believed to be considering his future at the club following their Champions League exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid.
The five-time Ballon d’ Or winner had delivered some rather below-par performances since the turn of the year and there were even suggestions Rangnick was considering dropping him.
Ronaldo rejoined Man United from Juventus last summer.
Meanwhile, the two main names in the frame to succeed Rangnick are Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax’s Erik ten Hag, though Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel has recently emerged as a potential option due to the issues at the Blues.
Gary Neville predicts team that will beat Arsenal to fourth place
Ex-Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, is backing his former club to beat Arsenal to fourth place, despite their demoralising Champions League exit.
The Red Devils were eliminated from Europe’s club competition by Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
Ralf Rangnick’s men are now focused on finishing in the top four places.
United are currently in fifth place with nine fixtures left, one point behind Arsenal who have 11 matches to play.
“I don’t know why but I still think they (United) could finish fourth. Whether that’s wild hope or the devil in me. But I still think they could do it and Arsenal might drop out.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t and if Arsenal finished fourth you’d have to congratulate them. But it also wouldn’t surprise me if United got it.
“If I was a betting man, which I’m not, I would probably go for Manchester United. I don’t know why, but there’s something about them that makes me think they will do it.”
