Covering: Ronaldo back in Manchester, Martinez and Eriksen announced REALLY soon, De Jong dragging on…
Cristiano Ronaldo still wants to leave Manchester United, but, again, Jorge Mendes is struggling to find a suitable buyer. Today he meets with Erik ten Hag to map out his future, as per Pedro Sepulveda.

I have maintained all summer that Mendes has led the pursuit to find Ronaldo a new club. The agent has been in Ronaldo’s ear all summer, while others close to him are not of the same opinion when it comes to departing Manchester for a second time in his career.
Ultimately, I think the way the Ronaldo story has been handled this summer has been awful on Ronaldo’s part.
The timing, cryptic social media posts and non-stop speculation has only made life harder for the new manager. Now, he has a 37-year-old striker who has yet to do any training with the group this summer.
It’s far from ideal and United don’t need another soap opera.
Furthermore, I was told by one source last week that Ronaldo would be fined if he refused to turn up for training this week.
