Last night (April 16), Manchester United beat Norwich 3-2 in the 33rd round of the Premier League with their outstanding performance. And that’s 37-year-old Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
When Ronaldo quickly scored a brace to give United a 2-0 lead, it was thought that MU would easily beat bottom-placed Norwich, but Norwich tenaciously pulled back 2-2.
In difficult circumstances, Ronaldo once again “burned” goalkeeper Tim Krul with a classic free-kick to win MU 3-2.

With these three goals, Ronaldo has scored 60 hat-tricks in his career, 10 for Portugal and 50 for the club.
What’s more, Tottenham and Arsenal lost 1-0 to Brighton and Southampton respectively, giving Manchester United a chance to finish in the top four in the Premier League this season and a Champions League spot next season.
MU is fifth in the Premier League table with 51 points, the same as Arsenal, but has played more than 1 game. MU is one game behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored three goals against Norwich and has scored two hat-tricks for Manchester United this season and three for Old Trafford. .
Additionally, Ronaldo has already surpassed United’s 20-goal milestone this season. Three goals in three different styles, including an empty net, a header and a direct free-kick, helped Ronaldo score 21 goals for United on all fronts against Norwich.

Ronaldo returned to Manchester United last summer after 12 years with Real Madrid and Juventus. In the 2-year contract with MU (with an option to extend by 1 year), in addition to the fixed salary, Cristiano Ronaldo will also receive additional bonuses based on individual and collective achievements.
According to Sun Sports (UK), Ronaldo will receive a bonus of £750,000 (over 22 billion VND) if he scores more than 20 goals per season. The 37-year-old Portuguese superstar also earned an extra £100,000 (nearly £3bn) for every goal he scored.
As a result, Ronaldo has earned £750,000 after surpassing the 20-goal milestone for MU this season. Ronaldo has an extra £2.1m so far after scoring 21 goals.
Ronaldo has scored at least 20 goals in each of the past 16 seasons. In the remaining six games of the season, the superstar with the world’s five golden balls can get an even bigger prize.
Ronaldo will get an extra £1m if he ends the season as MU’s top goalscorer. Cristiano Ronaldo is currently MU’s top scorer, 9 goals more than Bruno Fernandez in second place.

That means Ronaldo is almost certain to be United’s top scorer this season, with an extra £1m in bonuses (around VND30bn). If Ronaldo ends the season with 30 goals, MU will have to pay him £2.75m.
After the game, coach Ralph Rangnick told the players that under difficult circumstances, they cannot continue to rely on Ronaldo to find a way out. Despite Ronaldo’s great contributions, his future in the “theatre of dreams” remains unclear.
Ajax boss Eric Ten Haag is expected to become Manchester United’s new manager at the end of the season. British media reported that Ten Haag is ready to let Ronaldo leave Old Trafford. The Dutch strategist told MU leadership that his tactics were not suitable for an older player like Ronaldo.
Manchester United caretaker manager Ralph Rangnick has offered no guarantees about Ronaldo’s future, despite remaining at Old Trafford as a consultant for two years after leaving the interim role. The German strategist stressed that Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United depends on a new coach.

Coach Ralph Rangnick told reporters: “I’m not the final decision maker (about Ronaldo). Cristiano Ronaldo has one year left on his contract with Manchester United. It will be the decision of the new coach and the team’s leadership.
Once again, against Tottenham and today, Ronaldo proved that he is the one in all these moments, in games like this, and not by chance, when Ronaldo has the best scoring record in football history When he was the one who was different. Cristiano Ronaldo showed it again today. “
