Glum Cristiano Ronaldo arrives at Man Utd training as agent Jorge Mendes continues transfer search for dropped striker

The 37-year-old communicated his desire to leave Man Utd earlier this summer, following the club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Ronaldo’s agent has been in contact with a number of clubs competing in Europe’s top competition.

However, none are yet to make a concrete move for the legendary 815-career goal forward.

Marseille are the latest club to be linked with Ronaldo, but such rumours have upset president Pablo Longoria – who insists signing players like CR7 is not within the project.

Despite his future at United up in the air, Ronaldo continues to train hard and isn’t causing any problems in the dressing room, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Romano said: “Jorge Mendes is still trying to find Ronaldo a new club, but the situation is proving far from easy.

“He’s being super professional, training very hard and not causing any problems in the Manchester United dressing room.”

On Marseille, the Italian journalist added: “Olympique Marseille fans are so passionate about the team. They dream of this signing.

“But let me say, first point: there is nothing. As of today, there is nothing going on between Olympique Marseille and Cristiano Ronaldo.

“There are no meetings, no negotiations. But it’s also important to say, from what I am told, Marseille president Pablo Longoria is angry and sad with those rumours.

“Why? Because Longoria, together with his board of directors and the coaching staff, are doing their best to build Marseille.

“They feel they are doing their best to bring in many important players.

“The latest one, Eric Bailly, is on a loan deal with a buy option if they get Champions League next year.

“They have an idea, a project, a vision. And, as of today, Cristiano Ronaldo is absolutely not part of that project.

“They have a completely different vision for the present and the future of the club. They are not working on this deal.”

There’s just seven days remaining in the transfer window.

Mendes is continuing to look for a club, despite having very little time, and Romano says “let’s see what is next”.

Should Ronaldo remain at United, whether he’ll be handed a start anytime soon is yet to be seen.

The Portugal star was dropped, alongside captain Harry Maguire, for Monday’s 2-1 win over Liverpool.

New boss Erik ten Hag’s gamble paid off and a front three of Anthony Elanga, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho provided the much-needed energy the Dutchman requires of his squad.
