Manchester United are confident Cristiano Ronaldo will not leave the club in January, because of a lack of interest in him, ESPN reports.
United are bracing themselves for Ronaldo to mount another push to leave Old Trafford if he cannot win a regular place in Erik ten Hag’s team.
Despite the 37-year-old’s desire to move in the summer, the Red Devils only received one firm offer from a club in Saudi Arabia.
Speculation in the summer linked Ronaldo with Champions League sides including Chelsea, Napoli and Bayern Munich, but United never received a proposal from any club in Europe.
There’s even a chance Chelsea’s stance may have changed after Graham Potter replaced Thomas Tuchel as manager.
However, the Blues eased their problems upfront after bringing in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang late in the window.
Ronaldo has endured a difficult start to the season, scoring one goal – a penalty in the Europa League against Sheriff.
Ten Hag recently revealed how the No. 7 is “pissed off” with his lack of game time.
