Ronaldo’s bid to quit is threatening to completely derail the Red Devils after a rotten start to the season.
Boss Ten Hag is now ready to grant the forward’s wish to leave in an episode that has rumbled on all summer.
But https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/19526349/man-utd-cristiano-ronaldo-glazers-ten-hag/the 37-year-old will be short on offers from teams in the Champions League, with just over two weeks of the transfer window remaining.
SunSport exclusively revealed last week that a number of players had grown angry at the way Ron was trying to force his way out.
They claimed his foul mood was affecting the spirit in the camp.
Ten Hag also slammed the player’s premature exit from a pre-season game as “unacceptable”.
The manager wanted to believe Ronaldo could change and started him at Brentford on Saturday in the hope of a morale- boosting victory.
But the team crashed to a humiliating 4-0 defeat, with Ron and the Dutchman ignoring each other at full-time.
The Portuguese stormed off at the end and had words with coach Steve McClaren.
The club’s problem is they have no firm offers and they are not willing to rip up his contract and let him leave on a free.
His agent Jorge Mendes has told the board he has a deal with a club — but they have to name their price. So far the hierarchy has been unwilling to do that.
SunSport understands United last night called off their £15million deal with Juve for Rabiot, 27, after his mother and agent Veronique demanded a pay packet for her son similar to that of £240,000-a-week high earner Bruno Fernandes.
United may now move for £50m-rated Real Madrid and Brazil midfielder Casemiro, 30.
