Man Utd prepared to sell Ronaldo in January

Manchester United are prepared to see Cristiano Ronaldo depart in January.

The Telegraph says United manager Erik ten Hag and club officials are now willing to negotiate a move as Ronaldo targets a mid-season January exit.

Ronaldo has played just 80 minutes in the Premier League since being refused the chance to leave Old Trafford and has instead been relegated to the bench, with his last league start coming in United's 4-0 loss to Brentford at the beginning of September.

Against reigning league champions Manchester City, Ronaldo was clearly frustrated by his team-mates performances as he was forced to watch United's cataclysmic implosion from the sanctuary of the dugout.

His determination to join a Champions League club and further cement his status as the competition's top goalscorer saw Ronaldo rebuffed by a number of European clubs with many big teams unwilling to pay his extortionate salary demands.

An offer did arrive from Saudi Arabia side Al Hilal but Ronaldo is keen to remain in Europe, with United now willing to listen to offers for their legendary No 7.
