His angst is reportedly directed at manager Massimiliano Allegri for not employing more attacking tactics and, namely, not starting Joao Cancelo who Ronaldo feels could have given them more of an edge going forward.
While Allegri moved to commit his future at the club, the potential return of Antonio Conte is being touted in the face of Ronaldo’s displeasure.

The five time Ballon d’Or winner is also unhappy at some of the squad surrounding him and wants an overhaul in the summer, with the likes of Paulo Dybala almost certainly departing to fund a move for fellow Portuguese winger Joao Felix.
Liverpool sensation Mo Salah is reportedly the top priority for the club but in the event that he isn’t available, Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa is also touted to be an option.
Lyon centre midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is also said to be high on the Italian Champions’ wish list, but they will have to compete against Manchester City and Chelsea to secure his signature.
