Man Utd fans tip Cristiano Ronaldo to stay & eat off Christian Eriksen passes

Manchester United supporters believe that Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at the club and enjoy the inch-perfect passes of Christian Eriksen next campaign.

United faced off against Atletico Madrid on Saturday in a pre-season friendly and one of the standout performers was the former Tottenham attacker who showed everyone what he is capable of with some fine crossing throughout the match at Old Trafford.

And some viewers thought that the chemistry between Eriksen and Ronaldo could be deadly going into the new season. One wrote: “Ronaldo is going to EAT off these Eriksen crosses man.” Another stated: “Ronaldo is getting 50 goals this season with Eriksen whipping them in.” Someone said: “ Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of that Christian Eriksen cross would have given Man United the lead against Atletico btw.” A last one said: “Eriksen will be good if Ronaldo stays, those crosses simply made for CR7.”

Eriksen played for Brentford for the second half of last season and when his contract was up he decided to put pen to paper and sign for the Red Devils. Meanwhile, Ronaldo is in the second year of his two-year deal at United – but reports suggested that the Portugal international wanted a move away to a Champions League club, with sides like Atletico turning him down.

Indeed, it appears that the veteran attacker has failed secure a move away this summer, even after Jorge Mendes turned up with the star player to Carrington for crunch talks with the club.

Subsequent reports suggest United failed to convince Ronaldo to remain – but the star has recently appeared to imply that such reports of him wanting a move away are incorrect and that he is wanting to stay.

In fact, Ronaldo indicated he is set to make a first United appearance under Erik ten Hag in Sunday’s friendly against Rayo Vallecano. In an Instagram post remarking on his exclusion from the side for their match against Atletico, Ronaldo commented: “Domingo o rei joga,” – which in English means: “Sunday, the king plays.”
