Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘very happy’ at Manchester United, his agent and friend Jorge Mendes has insisted.

The 36-year-old has cut a frustrated figure in much of his return to Old Trafford, and the Portuguese has recently come under criticism for his decision not to recognize supporters after recent matches in Norwich and Newcastle.

It’s something that has been picked up by interim head coach Ralf Rangnick, who has asked his players to improve their body language on the pitch.

Aside from that, there have also been issues raised due to lack of chemistry between Ronaldo and his teammates.

Rangnick also seemed to criticize Ronaldo’s lack of work off the ball when he recently suggested the problem of allowing “too many transition moments” started with them at the top.

Despite these problems, however, Mendes was quick to stop any talk of a possible departure to No. 7.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is very fond of Manchester United,” Mendes said in an interview with Sky Sports Italia, according to The Sun.

‘He will continue with his solid, great performances as always in his career.

‘It’s going to be a great season for him, I’m sure.’

Ronaldo finished 2021 at a high level on Thursday night as he scored in United’s comfortable 3-1 win over Burnley.

In a first half where United dominated – described as the best 45 minutes United have produced since Rangnick’s arrival – Ronaldo snatched his eighth league goal of the campaign.

United are currently in sixth place with a match in hand over the two teams immediately above them – West Ham and Arsenal.
