Prior to the flight, the players trained at Carrington and several were absent including Marcus Rashford, Donny van de Beek and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Ten Hag calls the 37-year-old over, did a heading gesture and cracked a joke. Ronaldo nodded before breaking into a beaming smile.

It doesn’t look like there has been a breakdown in communication between the pair, despite the fact Ronaldo is having to get used to playing a bit-part role in the team.

That could also change with the amount of fixtures coming up after the international break.
