Manchester United announced yesterday that they reached a mutual agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo for the termination of his contract.

Ronaldo’s future at the club was always in doubt after his unsanctioned interview with Piers Morgan where he criticized the structure, Glazer family, Erik ten Hag and more.

He has wanted to leave the club all summer and the agreement was finally reached on Wednesday, with the player free to join any club he wishes from here on.

Now, Manchester United are on the hunt for a replacement in January, so who could they sign to succeed the Portuguese star?

Who will replace Ronaldo?

The most-linked name has been Cody Gakpo and while he has been a great attacking player, he is not a forward like Ronaldo; he would, however, still be a valuable addition to the team.

Napoli’s Victor Osimhen has been linked with a move and is liked by Ten Hag, but a move for him may only be possible in the summer given the price and Napoli’s resistance.

Ten Hag has also admired RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko, who is on loan at Austria’s Red Bull Salzburg having seen him shine with them last season.

He is young and fits the profile of what Ten Hag would want but he may not come in cheap and given his relative lack of big-game experience, it may be a gamble

What's your reaction?
