Man Utd ‘warns Ten Hag he will have very limited transfer funds in January EVEN if Cristiano Ronaldo is sold’

MANCHESTER UNITED boss Erik ten Hag has reportedly been told he will be on a budget next summer – even if they sell Cristiano Ronaldo in January.

And that will make the Dutchman reluctant to let his troubled Portuguese superstar go, according to ESPN.

It’s looking increasingly likely that Red Devils legend Ronaldo will leave the club again after losing his starting place under Ten Hag this season.

The star, who has scored 142 goals for the Prem giants, looked like a lost figure as an unused substitute in Sunday’s 6-3 defeat at Manchester City.

He has not started a Prem game since the 4-0 loss to Brentford in early August.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner appears to have fallen behind Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in United’s pecking order.

And sources have told ESPN he will be itching to find a new club in January if he can’t force himself back into the squad.

Ronaldo was reportedly looking to leave Old Trafford in the summer and has been linked with Serie A clubs like Napoli.

Uefa rules would allow Ronaldo to sign for a team in the Champions League in January as he has only played in the Europa League this season.

His approach to training and games is said to have remained “exemplary” since it became clear he would not be leaving in the summer.

But ESPN says he’s still “desperate to make the most of his final years at the top.”

Ten Hag is said to “understand Ronaldo’s situation, but still wouldn’t let him go in January”.

Ronaldo’s Old Trafford deal runs until the end of the season, with an option to extend it until summer 2024.

And ESPN has learned Ten Hag may be reluctant to let him go at the start of the new year as it is “highly unlikely there will be any money for a suitable replacement by next summer”.
