Ralf Rangnick is reportedly losing his patience in Cristiano Ronaldo, and doubts whether the forward would be fit enough to lead Manchester United’s attack next season, according to Manchester Evening News

Ronaldo is one of the most revered players in the history of football, with an incredible history of scoring goals, but the Portuguese has struggled in recent weeks, having netted just once in his last ten for the Red Devils. 

Rangnick is believed to have grown impatient with the 37 year old, and has not considered replacing him just because he is the only striker available for the team at the moment. 

Edinson Cavani has not been available for selection lately, as he continues to nurse a groin injury, while Marcus Rashford has had an underwhelming season by many standards. 

It’s unlikely the coach will axe Ronaldo for now, but he has previously stressed the need for United to get a younger, more energetic striker to lead the forward line.
