Footballing superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo might have just returned to Manchester United in the summer, but a new report states that the striker will consider leaving Old Trafford at the end of the season if their choice of manager does not suit him. 

Ronaldo's current contract with the Red Devils runs till the summer of 2023, but the Daily Star claim that the five-time Ballon d'Or award winner is keeping a close eye on who the club appoint as their next manager and would not hesitate leaving 12 months earlier if the new appointment does not bring the best out of him.

United have appointed Ralf Rangnick as the interim manager for the remainder of the season with the German set to move behind the scenes at the end of the season and step into a 'Senior Football Advisor' role for the next two years.  

The report goes on to state that Ronaldo has not been too impressed by Rangnick and with him coming to the autumn of his career, he 'thought it would be better than this' and that as a 'born winner' he wants 'to be winning more trophies'. 

While the club management have not given any indication on who their next managerial choice will be, reports have indicated that current Paris Saint-Germain boss, Mauricio Pochettino is their number one choice - while the likes of Ajax's, Erik ten Hag and Leicester City, boss Brendan Rodgers are also in the running for the post.
