MOSCOW, 26 Jul – Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes have arrived at Manchester United’s training center in Carrington, Sky Sports reported.
They are expected to hold talks with Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag about the future player soon. Former Red Devils head coach Alex Ferguson was also spotted at the training center. On Tuesday, the media reported that ten Hag intends to convince Ronaldo to stay in the team. Earlier, the Portuguese missed United’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.
Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United is uncertain after the team failed to qualify for the Champions League last season. In early July, it became known that the striker asked the management of United for permission to leave the club if there was a satisfactory offer. There were suggestions in the media that Ronaldo could continue his career at Paris Saint-Germain and Atlético Madrid. Ten Hag said the club had no plans to sell the Portuguese.
Ronaldo moved to Manchester United from Italian side Juventus in the summer of 2021. The player’s contract with the Mancunians runs until the summer of 2023 with the possibility of an extension for another season. Ronaldo is a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, a five-time Champions League winner and the 2016 European Champion.
