Ronaldo’s Man U status unceratain


Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United remained shrouded in uncertaint­y after the Portugal great returned to the club’s training ground with his agent on Tuesday. Ronaldo has yet to start preseason training with United — he missed the team’s tour of Thailand and Australia — and was reportedly holding talks with recently hired manager Erik ten Hag. There was no update from United about Ronaldo’s current status at the club following his arrival with his agent, Jorge Mendes, at the Carrington training base. Alex Ferguson, the former United manager who signed Ronaldo for the player’s first spell at the club from 2003-09, arrived at Carrington earlier Tuesday. Ferguson played an influentia­l role in persuading Ronaldo to return to United last year. The new Premier League season begins in less than two weeks. Ronaldo, 37, reportedly wants to play for another team after only one year back at Old Trafford. United finished in sixth place in the league last season, 35 points behind first-place Manchester City. United has said Ronaldo has not returned to training yet because of “personal reasons.”
