Cristiano Ronaldo had a difficult summer, in which he was looking to find a place in a Champions League team. He was out of most of the pre-season due to a personal situation.

Sharing a dressing room with Cristiano is complicated, as he is an epochal player, who has won multiple trophies, who has more Champions League titles than Man Utd. The figure of the Portuguese star carries a lot of weight everywhere, and it is for the same reason that information has been leaked about what is happening with the club.

Ronaldo has only started two games so far this season, and has not even scored a goal so far this season. It seems that the Manchester players are feeling more comfortable and under no pressure, and they feel it is only right after what happened in the transfer market.

Ronaldo was initially frustrated at not playing in this year's Champions League, but now he has also lost the starring role he had since last season when he finished as the team's leading scorer. Sources told The Sun that Dutch manager Erik ten Hag is looking favourably on this decision, and that of Marcus Rashford as first choice in attack.

There is no hiding the fact that the Red Devils players felt slighted by Cristiano, but as he is known he can return to the level of the player who has been at the elite level for years. Team-mates did want Cristiano to stay but it was a "low blow" that he missed much of pre-season.

Man Utd players feel comfortable when Cristiano is not around

The players feel free to express themselves on the pitch, they see a good project with the Dutch tactician and they are convinced they can compete without Cristiano. It's not the best of times around Old Trafford.
