Picture: REUTERS/MASSIMO PINCA Bengaluru — Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo is hopeful he can recover from a minor muscle injury in time to feature in Saturday’s Premier League match against Aston Villa. The Portugal international missed United’s 1-0 FA Cup third round win over Villa on Monday but is keeping his “fingers crossed” that he can return to action at the weekend.  Amid the club's struggles, reports around Europe suggest Ronaldo would be tempted to leave United come the end of the season should the 20-time English champions fail to improve from now until May. “I'm good,” Ronaldo said.   "Since he arrived I think in some points we are better, but he needs time. “You know, we have to feel some pain sometimes.  "Impossible - I think it's the main point. It’s nothing big and I hope to be good soon. “He is a player I enjoyed playing with previously and I know the rest of the squad here at Aston Villa will benefit from his quality and experience.

” Asked if he would be fit to face Villa, the 36-year-old said he hoped so. "I think to build up good things, sometimes you have to destroy a few things. Read: "I don't accept that our mentality be less than being in the top three in the Premier League. “We will try on Thursday,” Ronaldo added. “I will try to train as normal. They deserve that. Let’s see how the body reacts. They deserve that.” The forward had earlier backed interim boss Ralf Rangnick to do a good job at United but said the German needed time to bed in his ideas. I know the way but I'm not going to mention it here because I don't think it's ethical on my part to say that. Read more on these topics.

Rangnick was appointed until the end of the season after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November, but the interim boss has faced questions from the media about players being unhappy with his methods. “Since [Rangnick] arrived . Manchester (United) belongs to important things, so we have to change that.   "What I can say is we can do better - all of us... I'm here to try to win, to compete. he changed many things,” Ronaldo told Sky Sports. I'm here to try to win, to compete.

“But he needs time to put his ideas across to the players. But we have a long way to improve and I believe if we change our mind, we can achieve big things. It isn’t that easy to change the mentality of players and the way they play, the culture, the system like that.” United suffered their first defeat under Rangnick in last week's 1-0 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers and sit seventh in the league with 31 points at the halfway stage of the season.  "Since he arrived five weeks ago he changed many things," he added."   Here is each Premier League club's biggest earner this season, per  spotrac. “I think to build up good things, sometimes you have to destroy a few things. So why not — new year, new life and I hope United can be at the level fans want. "It takes time but I believe that he is going to do a good job.

They deserve that,” Ronaldo added. Villa  completed the signing of French international left-back Lucas Digne from  Everton on Thursday. "Since he arrived I think in some points we are better, but he needs time. Financial details were not disclosed but Sky Sports had earlier reported  the deal was worth between £20m and £25m. The 28-year-old joins Villa after 3½ years at Everton, where he made 127 appearances across all competitions while registering six goals and 20 assists. I believe that he is going to do a good job. “When Lucas became available we jumped at the opportunity to bring him to the club,” Villa manager Steven Gerrard said.

The arrival of Digne at Villa Park further highlights the club’s ambitions under Gerrard after they were boosted by the loan signing of Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona last week. In other transfer news Newcastle United have signed New Zealand striker Chris Wood from relegation rivals Burnley. The clubs did not disclose financial details of the transfer but British media reported that Newcastle paid Burnley £25m for the 30-year-old.  Reuters .
