Manchester United will play ‘hard ball’ in face-to-face discussions with Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday, according to reports.
The Red Devils have maintained that the wantaway forward is not for sale and will see out the remaining year of his contract.
The veteran striker is yet to train with United during pre-season, missing all of Erik ten Hag’s first few weeks in charge. Ronaldo has instead been in Portugal and has cited personal issues as the reason for his absence.
However, several reports suggest that the former Real Madrid ace is returning to Manchester this week to hold crunch talks with Ten Hag and the Old Trafford hierarchy.
United are expected to remain firm in their stance that Ronaldo will not be sold, though, according to the Daily Telegraph.
