“One solution to resolve this difficulty can be if Ronaldo’s contract was terminated. But there isn’t any indication that is one thing Manchester United are keen to do in the mean time.

“At the time, I – like many, I’m positive – thought that Jorge Mendes was going to right away current the membership with a proposal they may speak about. But there was no supply.
“In effect, I think what they were trying to do was to drum up interest for Ronaldo, so now United find themselves in a position where they have got an unhappy player; Erik ten Hag is having to deal with him, but yet they do have to have that public stance that he is not for sale.
“Saying something aside from that will drive a possible worth down.”
