If he gets his wish, his second spell at Old Trafford will come to an abrupt end after arriving to great fanfare last summer.
After 12 years apart, Ronaldo is back in English football and has made some truly extraordinary moments.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored two goals in a 4-1 win and will remain the deciding factor in many matches.
Ronaldo single-handedly managed to lure United through the Champions League group stages, with late winners against Villarreal and Atalanta.
Hat-tricks against Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City helped keep United in the first four races, but they will sit sixth with their lowest tally in the Premier League.
Ronaldo finished the season with 24 goals in all competitions, and despite the troubles on and off the pitch at the club, United fans are thankful they got the legend back for another term.
One person said, “His bro was just turning it off so those attackers would forget my primary fire. I’d be sick too.”
Another commented, “Doing it, at 37, in PL+CL. While ‘problem’ is rated all season long is f**king crazy.”
One tweeted: “Every bit of his comeback was worth it. I have absolutely no regrets.”
While another put it: “Would I do it again. Seeing him score a hat-trick against Tottenham directly. And that double against Arsenal.”
United insist Ronaldo is not for sale and believe he will honor the final year of his contract.
Ronaldo has not reported his pre-season training at the time of writing due to “personal, family reasons” which United have agreed to.
It is currently unknown if he will take part in United’s pre-season tour, which begins on Friday with a trip to Thailand.
Earlier this week, Terrell Malacia was confirmed as United’s first signing under new coach Erik ten Hag.
