Ronaldo has said he does not respect United manager Erik ten Hag and claimed he is being pushed out of Old Trafford.
Recall, Ronaldo was disciplined after refusing to come on as a substitute in a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur last month.
“l don’t think he wants a way back,” Gary Neville told Sky Sports. “He wouldn’t have done this interview if he wanted a way back.
“He knew it would bring the headlines it has and be the end of his Manchester United career.”
Ronaldo has just over six months left on his contract after rejoining United from Juventus in August 2021.
Manchester United failed to qualify for the Champions League after finishing sixth in the Premier League last season, despite Ronaldo’s 24 goals in all competitions.
“I’m wondering what Man Utd are doing because the reality of it is they know they have to terminate Cristiano’s contract or they open up a precedent so any player can criticise them in the future,” added Neville.
“I agree with some of the things Cristiano has said, and many Man Utd fans will agree with many things Cristiano has said. But the reality is if you’re an employee within a business and say those things your employment has to terminate and Man Utd has to do that in the next few days.
