There was a flurry of discontent surrounding Ronaldo and it was suggested that he might leave the club just months after a spectacular return in the summer.

A Spanish newspaper mocked the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, even as Real Madrid’s arch-rivals Barcelona were set to appear in April Fools’ Day-style reports, while also returning to the Bernabeu was robbed

But on the day Ronaldo propelled Ralph Rangnik’s side to a 3-1 win at Burnley, Mendes reiterated his client’s commitment at Old Trafford.

The agent told Sky Sports in Italy: “Cristiano Ronaldo is very happy at Manchester United.

“He will continue his solid, stellar performances in his career as always.

“It’s going to be a good season for him, I’m sure.”

Ronaldo should have given United an early lead against Burnley, but he was furious when he scored.

But after Scott McTominay’s finish and Ben Mee’s own goal, Ronaldo tapped in a rebound to wrap up the win.

Ronaldo has scored 14 goals in 21 matches for the Red Devils so far this season.

This includes four of their five Premier League games in December as United continue the challenge for a place in the top four.

But there are still many people who believe that this match is not good news for the club.

His body language during Monday’s 1-1 draw at Newcastle – groaning and upset teammates, then running down the tunnel – left Gabby Agbonlahor at the forward’s treatment of young players.

The former Villa striker said: “That performance from Ronaldo someone spoiled the whole game. His attitude was off.

“The harmony in that changing room is not good. Rashford and Greenwood’s form has fallen since Ronaldo’s arrival.

“If I’m Rashford, Greenwood and Sancho I’m scared to take a shot. Every time they have a shot he raises his arms to say, ‘Why didn’t you go to me?’

“I was saying to myself, ‘Oh, why did we have to bring him here?

And there are also rumors of a power struggle between captain Harry Maguire and Ronaldo, who leaves Portugal one of the greatest players of all time.
