It has been a difficult summer at Manchester United even after the appointment of Erik ten Hag as the new Red Devils manager who left Ajax to start a new chapter in The Theater of Dreams who have been on a downward spiral ever since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 after 27 glorious years in charge of the team.

One of the reasons for all the drama this summer is Cristiano Ronaldo wanting to leave Old Trafford after the club missed out on this season’s UEFA Champions League. The Portuguese star has been looking for a new club alongside his agent Jorge Mendes, but they have failed on their task as no other club is willing to sign him due to his age and high salary.

To this, Michael Owen was asked on ‘DAZN’ if he thinks Ronaldo will stay: “I didn’t a week ago, but the noise coming out right now suggest he will. If he goes, they are very light in the attacking areas. The number of goals he scored last season; how do you replace that? I think he will stay unless they have somebody big to replace him”.

The curious fact that ties Owen and Ronaldo

After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid back in 2009 for a £94 million fee, Michael Owen was the player Manchester United signed to replace the Portugal captain. The former Liverpool player even took his iconic ‘No. 7’ shirt but flopped miserably with The Red Devils.
