Cristiano Ronaldo has no intentions of leaving Manchester United at the moment, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano. The Portuguese has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, due to the dismal form of the Red Devils.

Ronaldo returned to his alma mater last summer, and has been fared quite well for the club since then. The 36-year-old has scored 14 goals in 21 games across competitions.

Despite his individual exploits, Ronaldo has been left frustrated at United's poor run of form. The Red Devils have lacked consistency this season. Even the arrival of interim manager Ralf Rangnick has failed to change the situation. The Premier League giants are currently seventh in the league table after 19 games, a whopping 22 points behind league leaders Manchester City.

As a result, Ronaldo has been rumoured to be looking to leave United this year in search of silverware. However, speaking to The United Stand, as relayed by The Express, Romano said that the Portuguese will stay at the club.

The 34-year-old's current contract expires in the summer of 2023, although the Red Devils have the option to tie the player down for a third season.
