Cristiano Ronaldo has finally linked up with Manchester United as he ponders over his future with the club. The veteran striker is said to be keen on a summer exit, barely a year after he rejoined the Red Devils from Juventus.
According to reports, Ronaldo has already informed United chiefs about his desire to depart during the ongoing transfer window.
His uncertain future with United saw him miss the club’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia, with initial reports suggesting that he was attending to a family issue.

However, Sky Sports reports that the Portuguese talisman has returned to Manchester and has already trained at the Carrington Training Complex.
The 37-year-old is understood to have flown back to the UK on Monday, July 25, after spending weeks away from the club. ESPN shared photos of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner driving himself, with the outlet claiming the forward was headed for a training session.
While it remains to be seen if Ronaldo will continue with the club ahead of the new season, Sky News claims that the star forward is scheduled for crunch talks with Erik ten Hag to discuss his future at the Theatre of Dreams.
