Ronaldo OUT + Neymar IN. Can United keep Neymar under Mourinho?
Cristiano Ronaldo has been shunned by Manchester United under Eric ten Haag.
Ronaldo’s selfish behavior clashed with Van Gaal’s emphasis on team principles.
It was an intense conflict. Starting with last season’s pre-season tour abroad, Ronaldo refused to go. A family vacation was the reason.
During the off-season, the game wasn’t over, but Ronaldo left the field. Coach Ten Haag was furious. “It can’t happen,” he said.
The same thing happened during the season. Eventually, Van Gaal not only excluded him from team training, but also removed him from the starting lineup. Ronaldo publicly complained and crossed the Rubicon with van Gaal.
He eventually parted ways with United just before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Saudi club Al Nasr was his next destination.
Under Mourinho, the Red Devils had ‘sold’ Ronaldo.
This time, Neymar is the new favorite. “Neymar, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain, has emerged as a target for Manchester United,” 메이저놀이터 France’s Les Quips reported on Nov. 23 (ET).
Neymar is also at odds with the PSG hierarchy and ace Kylian Mbappe. Despite being the absolute ace of the Brazilian national team and one of the best strikers in the world, PSG have ruled him out of their future plans.
As a result, Neymar is likely to leave this summer. Manchester United are in the running.
United has Marcus Rashford. Playing Neymar as a winger on either side of him would be too powerful. He’s world-class. United are looking to strengthen across the board. They’re targeting Victor Osimhen as a frontline striker, and they’re looking at Kim Min-Jae at center back. They’re also looking to bolster their midfield. If Neymar were to come to United, they would be able to challenge Man City and Liverpool for the top spot in the EPL. However, Neymar would have to fit into the system of Van Gaal, who has strong leadership qualities.
