Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister has liked a post on social media asking the Portuguese forward to leave Manchester United.

Manchester United are officially out of the top four race of the Premier League this season, Ronaldo could end up playing in the Europa Conference League next season, with his side languishing in sixth place in the Premier League.

The Instagram post reads: “It’s very sad to see Cristiano Ronaldo in this situation with this Manchester United team. Now we are without a place in the Champions League.

“Cristiano does not have to stand [stay] as proof of love for the club, the greatest proof of that was he returned to Manchester United having also had a proposal from Manchester City with clearly a much superior squad, coach and by recent history.

Ronaldo’s sister, Katia Aveiro, appeared to back the idea of Ronaldo leaving Man United by liking the post, which has since been deleted by the author.

Ronaldo’s contract is not due to expire until June 2023. The 37-year-old forward has scored 24 goals from 37 appearances across all competitions since returning to Manchester United from Juventus.

However, former Manchester United number 7, David Beckham hopes Ronaldo will stay with the Red Devils’ for ‘another year or two’.

“Cristiano is one of the best players over the last 15 years with Lionel Messi.

“To see him stay on hopefully at United is important for the fans. It is important to him and we all know how much Man United means to him.

“He is still doing what he does best; scoring goals and creating. That’s what Cristiano does.

“At his age, to be doing what he is doing is really incredible, so hopefully it continues and hopefully he stays for another year or two.” Beckham told Skysports.
