RALF RANGNICK has refused to make a decision on Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United future.
That’s despite the veteran’s hat-trick earning his team a much-needed win against bottom-feeders Norwich.
Ronnie fired United 2-0 up against the Canaries at Old Trafford on Saturday.
But the visitors silenced their hosts by fighting back to 2-2 before Ronaldo’s sublime free-kick sealed a 3-2 win for United.
The Portuguese ace, 37, now has 21 goals in all competitions this term.
And his treble was the 60th that Ronaldo’s bagged in a glittering career.
SunSport can exclusively reveal the star will now pocket an £850,000 bonus for hitting over 20 goals this term.
However, Ronnie’s long-term future remains unclear as United battle Tottenham and Arsenal for fourth.
Should the Red Devils miss out on the Champions League, Ronaldo has been tipped for an exit, with Paris Saint-Germain and several MLS sides reportedly keen.
Incoming new boss Erik ten Hag is also said to be planning for a new striker.

And Rangnick, who moves into a off-pitch role at United this summer, refused to say whether or not he wants Ronaldo to see out the final year of his contract.
The German said: “This is in the end not my decision.
“Cristiano has got another year of contract. This will be a decision for the new manager to take, together with the board.
“Again, he showed against Tottenham and today’s game, that he can be the difference maker in moments like this, in games like this.
“It is not coincidence that he has the best goalscoring record of all players in history. He showed that again today.”
