Man Utd fearing lucrative plans will be derailed as Cristiano Ronaldo could quit club
Manchester United fear losing Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of the season will leave the club's plans to tour America in chaos.United bosses have been drawing up plans for Ralf Rangnick's squad to go to the United States in July on a pre-season tour.It will be the first time United have toured since 2019 due to the impact of the Covid pandemic.United favour the States because of the warm climate, superior training facilities and the chance to fulfil commercial commitments.A pre-season tour is worth up to £20m to United from revenue streams including sponsors, merchandising and gate receipts.But United know travelling to the States without Ronaldo would lessen the club's appeal - and have a serious impact on the value of them going across the Atlantic.Ronaldo has become disillusioned with life at Old Trafford following his return to the club from Juventus last summer in a £12m deal.United sacked Ole Gunner Solskjaer in November and find themselves languishing in seventh place in the table, a staggering 21 points behind leaders Manchester City.Ronaldo, 36, has the option to extend his United deal by 12 months in the summer, but is waiting to see what the team achieves between now and then and who replaces interim boss Rangnick, before deciding what to do.Incoming CEO Richard Arnold, who will succeed Ed Woodward at the start of next month, faces a losing battle to keep the Portuguese icon.Ronaldo spoke last week of his disappointment at how his return to Manchester had panned out, and made it clear he didn't go back to be in a team so far off the pace in the title race.Arnold, who has been credited with much of the club's recent commercial success, is desperate to keep Ronaldo and is hoping to hold talks with the former Real
Man Utd slap staggering loan fee on Anthony Martial despite flop's miserable form
Ralf Rangnick took interim charge of the team, though he was named on the bench for their Premier League trip to Brentford on Wednesday.The Frenchman’s exclusion has been as a result of both injuries and his desire to leave Old Trafford after a seven-year spell in which he has failed to live up to his £58million transfer fee.He continued to flop this season, despite being handed opportunities to impress by former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring just one goal in the 359 minutes he has played.With little sign that he can become a regular starter under Rangnick, Martial made the decision to request a transfer.But he is currently being prevented from leaving by United’s remarkably high asking price considering his form in recent seasons.According to Sport Mediaset, via Football Italia, United are charging a loan fee of around £5m for the attacker.That price is described as being ‘extraordinary’ considering Martial’s situation at United and the fact he will only be at his loan club for five months.Should Manchester United reduce their asking price to allow Anthony Martial to leave? Let us know in the comments section...It is also stated that United would be expecting a loan club to pay Martial’s wages in full, which would cost another £5m.That would bring the total fee to the region of £10m, an astonishing price for a player who has failed so badly to impress.The high demands look set to scupper United’s attempts to move him on, with Juventus general manager Maurizio Arrivabene making it clear his club would not be signing Martial for that price.Another potential suitor in Newcastle are also said to have ‘baulked’ at United’s asking price, leaving Martial with few destinations after Sevilla’s bid for him was rejected.
Ralf Rangnick explains Cristiano Ronaldo sub after Man Utd diva's angry tantrum
Cristiano Ronaldo after the superstar’s angry reaction to being hauled off during Manchester United’s win at Brentford.Ronaldo started up-front for United and played a crucial role in the Mason Greenwood goal that ultimately sealed the three points for Rangnick’s men.The Portuguese attacker chested a lofted ball forward into the path of Bruno Fernandes who sprinted through on goal before playing a squared pass to Greenwood to tap-in.But nine minutes after that goal, which was United’s second of the game, Rangnick opted to replace Ronaldo with centre-back Harry Maguire.Ronaldo was left furious by that decision, slowly walking off the pitch before throwing a coat that had been handed to him by a kit-man to the ground.The 36-year-old continued to show his frustration while sitting on one of the steps in the dugout at the Brentford Community Stadium.He could be seen gesturing and asking why it was him who had been taken off before shaking his head.While he defended Ronaldo’s angry reaction, Rangnick insisted after the win that it had been the right call.Was Ralf Rangnick's decision to substitute Cristiano Ronaldo the right one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section...He highlighted the fact that Ronaldo had only recently returned from injury, as well as the events of United’s last game in which they threw away a two-goal lead at Aston Villa, for his reasons.“That is normal - a striker wants to score,” Rangnick told BT Sport when asked about Ronaldo’s reaction to being taken off.“But he has come back from a little injury and it was important to remember we have got another game coming up.Want to be on the ball with all of the latest football news?Well then sign up for the brilliant Daily Star football email
Thomas Frank slams "unbelievably lucky" Man Utd and dismisses "crap" excuses
Manchester United for being “unbelievably lucky” in their win over the Bees on Wednesday.The Red Devils travelled to London for the rearranged Premier League clash, with Ralf Rangnick’s side claiming a welcome 3-1 win in their battle to finish in the top four.But during another dreadful first-half, the visitors had David de Gea to thank for keeping the scores goalless heading into the break, with the Spaniard pulling off a series of crucial saves.De Gea twice prevented Mathias Jensen from breaking the deadlock in the first period, with United coming out as a different team for the second period.United quickly punished Brentford for missing those chances when Anthony Elanga controlled Fred’s pass before heading in from close range 10 minutes after the interval.Mason Greenwood then provided the tap-in on a wonderful team goal after Bruno Fernandes raced onto Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliant chest down.And Rangnick’s side made sure of all three points when substitute Marcus Rashford fired in at the near post.Though Ivan Toney pulled a goal back following a scramble, it was too little, too late for Brentford.Who was man of the match in Manchester United's win over Brentford? Let us know in the comments section...With his side having dominated the first-half, Frank was understandably unhappy to have taken nothing from the game.And in his post-match interview, he slammed United for being “unbelievably lucky” while dismissing the excuse of his side missing so many chances.“Unbelievably proud of my team.
Man Utd branded 'the joke that writes itself' as they bring fans 'incredible sleep'
Manchester United are renowned for their ability to become the official partner for just about any consumer product — and their latest venture into the world of sponsorship left the gate wide open for them to be mocked by their rivals and own fans.As one of the biggest clubs on a global scale in terms of fan membership and revenue, it is no surprise that companies are keen to get their brands advertised at Old Trafford with the world watching.Their attempts to drum up revenue saw the club agree a lucrative 10-year partnership deal with Mlily, a mattress manufacturer, back in May 2018.And the latest advertisement from the company on social media has handed fans the opportunity to openly poke fun at the club and its partner.In a tweet posted on Wednesday, Mlily — defining themselves as a ‘Legend of Comfort’ — took the opportunity to celebrate their partnership with the Red Devils.The tweet read: "Bringing you incredible sleep, with our partners @ManUtd #mufc #redefiningsleep.”That unfortunate wording, coupled with the image of Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Alex Telles — who looked to be on the verge of snoozing himself — attracted the attention of social media users.Man United have been criticised for their dull brand of football since Ralf Rangnick took charge in an interim role in early December and the statistics suggest there could be perhaps more entertainment.HAVE YOUR SAY! Does Manchester United's brand of football send you to sleep? Comment below.Rangnick’s men have only managed to score 11 goals in their eight games under the 63-year-old so far, including 1-0 victories over Crystal Palace, Norwich and Aston Villa.And with their football not being the easiest on the eye to observe, some witty Twitter users
