Cristiano Ronaldo 'ready to leave Man Utd' in summer transfer if superstar does not approve of new manager

CRISTIANO RONALDO could leave Manchester United in the summer if he does not agree with the new managerial appointment, reports say.

The 36-year-old completed a fairytale return to United in the summer, putting an end to his Juventus nightmare.

Ronaldo has since netted 14 times in 22 appearances but it wasn't enough to save Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's job or solidify United's place in the top-four.

And according to the Daily Star, Ronaldo's future beyond the summer depends on who becomes the permanent manager after Ralf Rangnick's tenure as interim boss comes to an end.

The report states that new chief executive officer Richard Arnold – who replaced Ed Woodward – will now be under pressure to get the appointment spot on.

Mauricio Pochettino is the name that just doesn't seem to go away.

The Paris Saint-Germain boss also happens to be United legend Gary Neville's ideal long-term appointment.

And as SunSport exclusively revealed, Pochettino is only awaiting the official call inviting him to become the new manager.
