Erik ten Hag will hold talks with wantaway Cristiano Ronaldo when he returns to first team training.

Ronaldo has told Manchester United that he wishes to leave this summer should they receive a suitable offer amid his concerns that the club is not moving forward quickly enough.

The 37-year-old ‘still has an affinity for the club’ but at this stage of his career wants to be playing in the Champions League and does not see that happening at United.

United have no wish to sell Ronaldo and have yet to receive an enquiry. They have underlined that the striker remains under contract and hope that he sees that out. 

Despite the player’s agent Jorge Mendes meeting different clubs over recent weeks there is also a limited market for a player on around £480,000 a week.

Ten Hag has been talking to all United players as he welcomes them back to training and will be keen to sit down with Ronaldo to understand his frustration, particularly as they are due to leave for their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia on Friday.

The Dutch coach had planned for the Portuguese superstar, last season’s top scorer with 24 goals, to be part of his strikeforce for the new campaign and United’s transfer strategy has reflected that.

Though those connected with Ronaldo have pointed to a lack of new arrivals, left-back Tyrell Malacia is due to sign from Feyenoord, following a medical.

Meanwhile, productive talks are ongoing for Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong and Lisandro Martinez at Ajax. 

They remain hopeful of free agent Christian Eriksen also accepting their contract offer.

However, should Ronaldo push harder to leave, the prospect of having to find a new striker will mean a stark re-assessment of their limited budget.
