She added that Ronaldo justified his request with a desire to participate in the Champions League for the rest of his career.
The newspaper noted that a return to the Italian league remains an option for the 37-year-old Portuguese star.
Several reports over the past few days have indicated that Ronaldo has already received several offers from various clubs to leave United in the coming period, especially since he will not be participating in the Champions League next season.
In addition, some German reports have confirmed that his agent Jorge Mendez offered him to Bayern Munich.
Ronaldo decided to return to United last summer, after an experience spanning three seasons at Juventus, to go through a modest season as a team and an average season individually, in which the Don scored 24 goals and went without a championship.
United finished sixth in the league, which means Ronaldo will not play in the Champions League next season if he continues to play at Oldafford Stadium.
It is worth noting that Ronaldo’s contract with Manchester United expires at the end of the new season in about a year, but previous reports have confirmed that the Red Devils are not ready to give him up.
