•  Tense situation at Old Trafford with the Portuguese footballer, whose relationship with Rangnick is going through its worst moment.

Atlético de Madrid will visit Manchester United on Tuesday, March 15, in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16. And it will do so with a high climate of tension in the English team, with Cristiano Ronaldo as the visible head of this tidal wave that is taking place at Old Trafford a few days before facing the mattress team in a transcendental event.

Although the problems of the Portuguese with the coach, Rangnick, come from afar, they have increased in recent days, after the coach did not have the crack for the derby against Manchester City, which ended with a landslide by Guardiola‘s men, alluding to some physical problems of the footballer. “I have to believe my medical staff. Our doctor came to see me on Friday morning before training and told me that Cristiano couldn’t train,” the coach said.

The player took the opportunity to go to Portugal for two days, something that has not gone down well with either his coach or his teammates. And on the team’s return to work, Cristiano appeared at the United facilities with two bodyguards. According to different British media, the Portuguese has already made the decision to leave the team when the season ends.


Within this atmosphere, Manchester receives Tottenham on Saturday, in a decisive duel to be in the Champions League next season. Those of Rangnick are fifth with 47 points, two more than the Spurs. But it is that Arsenal, which is fourth with one more unit than the Red Devils, has three games less, so a stumble on Saturday could be a serious blow to the aspirations of a team, United, which on Tuesday hosts Atlético de Madrid plunged into a climate of tension.
