CR7 holds 'crisis talks' over Utd future

English Premier League

Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly held "crisis talks" regarding his future at Old Trafford.  

With United still battling to find rhythm under interim boss Ralf Rangnick, their talisman Ronaldo is said to be frustrated with the side’s performances of late. 

The 36-year-old forward is now said to have held urgent talks with his agent, Jorge Mendes, relating to his future at the club as he fears a disastrous return.

"Cristiano is very concerned about what is happening at United,” a source close to Ronaldo revealed, according to The Sun. 

"The team is receiving a lot of criticism and he knows he is regarded as one of the leaders. 

"There are quite a lot of problems and Cristiano is feeling the pressure and is very stressed by the situation. 

"He desperately wants his United move to be a success, but he is starting to recognise that winning trophies with the current setup could be a real struggle.

"Jorge came to see him and they spent time chatting through how things are going, what they think are the problems, how they might be solved and what the solutions may be. Nothing has been ruled out."

The Red Devils are currently languishing in seventh spot on the Premier League table, four points adrift from fourth-placed Arsenal.
