Manchester United are keen on Ronaldo, who has scored 24 goals in all competitions, not for sale, according to reports, with new coach Erik ten Hag keen to work with him, according to reports.
Ronaldo won three Premier League titles and the Champions League in six trophy-laden years with United before leaving Real Madrid in 2009 and Juventus in 2018, racking up more trophies at both clubs.
United’s internationals will have to train in the coming days before flying to Thailand on Friday to begin their pre-season tour.
