It has reportedly been revealed how Manchester United's first-team players have responded to Cristiano Ronaldo asking the club to sell him in this transfer window.
The 37-year-old returned to the Red Devils in August last year following 12 years away from Old Trafford, during which he became one of the game's greatest players of all time.
Although he scored 24 goals following his stunning homecoming, United were unable to secure a spot in next season's UEFA Champions League, which is believed to have led Ronaldo to become disgruntled at the 20-time English champions.
As a result, he has reportedly asked United to let him leave ahead of the 2022/23 season, with several clubs across Europe, including Chelsea, said to be interested in his signature.
According to The Times, several players in the club's dressing room have reacted positively to the news as they believe they would be able to play with more freedom in the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's absence.
The source points out that a number of rumours of fallouts in the squad behind the scenes have been reported since Ronaldo's arrival last year, with some publications suggesting that many of his teammates found him intimidating.
Clubs such as Napoli, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have also been credited with an interest in his services, while it has emerged that Paris Saint-Germain are among his preferred destinations.
Since it came out that he wants to leave United in this window, Ronaldo has missed pre-season training sessions on both Monday and Tuesday this week, citing "family reasons" for his consecutive no-shows.
