Welcome to the United On My Mind daily round-up, where we take a look at some of the best Manchester United stories which you might have missed.
Starman Cristiano Ronaldo could wish for a move away from Old Trafford if the results continue to plummet in the way that they have been.
United have joined the list of teams who’ve rejected the opportunity to sign one of Chelsea’s best-ever players.
And finally, Ed Woodward’s time at Manchester United is coming to an end, but reports claim he is looking for another role within the club.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s demands
When a team signs a player of Ronaldo’s calibre and stature, irrespective of which team it is, standards are raised which must be met. Ronaldo is arguably the greatest player to have ever lived and that comes with expectations.
The Express has reported the Portuguese superstar could demand an Old Trafford exit if results continue to worsen.
The five-time Ballon D’or winner has NEVER played in the Europa League and with United falling behind the likes of Arsenal in the league, the likeness has grown that he could be playing in Europe’s second-string competition next season.
When re-joining the club, Ronaldo had said: “I am not here for a vacation. As I told you, before was good, winning important things and I wore the shirt before many years ago, but I am here to win again.”
With United in an utter mess under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, there seems to be a growing concern if the club does stick with the former Cardiff City boss, things could go from bad to worse which may make Ronaldo’s return a failure.
Cristiano Ronaldo shows his frustration during Manchester derby defeat United avoid Chelsea legend
When a big-name player is on the move for whatever reason, Manchester United’s name is so often thrown into contention to sign the said player. Some are true, some are false but one name who will not be coming to Old Trafford is Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard.
El Nacional claims United have joined the list of PSG, Bayern Munich and Newcastle United in rejecting the opportunity to sign the former Chelsea star.
His big move to Real Madrid has not lived up to expectations with the Belgian international only scoring five times since he left Chelsea in 2019.
It’s safe to say United have already got their Premier League legend, they seemingly don’t want another!

Woodward wants to stay
Ed Woodward. It would be safe to say- not the most popular figure to ever be associated with the club. In the midst of the European Super League debacle, Woodward had announced he would be stepping down, much to the delight of many United fans.
The executive vice-chairman has held his position for eight years and has seen United’s worse run in decades in regards to silverware.
The Daily Mail has reported that Woodward is now in discussions with the club to keep some form of influence in a consultancy-type role. The news may not go down well with the fans who were glad to see the back of him!
