Cristiano Ronaldo when he was still wearing Real Madrid
Man Utd just had a bad performance against Man City in the Premier League. In fact, they had a bad first half, especially when Jadon Sancho scored the equalizer. However, the defense played like a dream, making the Red Devils pay dearly.
Currently, the Red Devils have been knocked out of 4th place by Arsenal. They no longer hold the right to self-determination when they are 1 point behind Arsenal but have 3 more kicks than their opponents. The risk of Man Utd not being able to win tickets to the Champions League is getting closer and closer.
Man Utd definitely need a change after this season. And after the loss to Man City, perhaps coach Ralf Rangnick discovered that at least 3 players had to leave Old Trafford.
Man Utd made a big mistake when spending up to £ 80 million to recruit Maguire. The English midfielder is constantly disappointing. Against Man City, once again Maguire had an unconvincing performance. Man Utd cannot conquer the top with an unstable Maguire.
The defense is always the fulcrum for every team towards success. But with Maguire, this becomes a luxury. Man Utd must bring in a top-class midfielder and can be a solid support for teammates around.
What do Man Utd expect in Cavani? Coach Rangnick admits that he cannot force a player to play if the player feels he is not ready. And at a time when Man Utd needed him most, Cavani was almost missing.
The proof is that the Uruguayan striker is absent for 6 consecutive matches. Indeed, Man Utd is wasting money on a player who is not fit to play every week like Cavani. Cavani’s level is not in dispute, but Man Utd needs more than that.
Man Utd brought Ronaldo back to Old Trafford to make the difference. However, CR7 is not suitable for a tournament that requires physical strength and long-distance racing like the Premier League. At the age of 37, the Portuguese superstar no longer shows the image of a top assassin.
He often loses the ball, loses his breath and is easily blocked. Man Utd need to let Ronaldo go to make room for a younger and stronger element in attack. Man Utd must eliminate Ronaldo to make a strong revolution in terms of personnel.
That is essential when from the beginning of the season, Man Utd’s performance is very poor. Ronaldo’s stay will be a barrier for Man Utd to build a clear, forward-looking game.
