Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick insists the future of Cristiano Ronaldo is out of his hands.
There are rumours the Portugal captain will leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.
Ronaldo further underlined his importance with a ha-trick.in United’s 3-2 win against Norwich City on Saturday.
“In the end, this is not my decision,” said Rangnick.
“Cristiano has another year on his contract. This will be a decision for the new manager to take together with the board.
“But he showed against Tottenham and today that he can be the difference-maker in games like this.
“It is no coincidence he has the best goalscoring record of all players in history.”
