Man Utd stars 'unhappy' with Ronaldo

English Premier League

Some players in the Manchester United dressing room are reportedly concerned with Cristiano Ronaldo’s "undroppable status" since joining in August.  

The Portuguese forward has been a key figure at United since his surprise return to Old Trafford, having featured regularly under previous boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and interim manager Ralf Rangnick's first few games in charge too.

Ronaldo is also the club's leading goalscorer this season with 14 strikes across all competitions so far. 

However, the Daily Express have suggested that Harry Maguire, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani are not happy with the 36-year-old's "undroppable" treatment. 

The trio are believed to be affected by this, with the squad reportedly low on morale following Rangnick’s first loss as interim manager, 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night. 

The report adds that Ronaldo has impacted Maguire's position as club captain due to his personality, while Greenwood seemingly looked to have an extended run at striker before the five-time Ballon d’Or winner arrived.

Cavani has also seen a dip in first-team action as Solskjaer’s 4-2-3-1 formation meant that the experienced duo had to battle for one spot.   

Elsewhere, other players in the squad are reportedly frustrated with Ronaldo’s level of influence over the Portuguese-speaking players, such as Alex Telles, Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot.
