Cristiano Ronaldo and Jorge Mendes arrived together at Man Utd on Tuesday

MANCHESTER UNITED are planning crunch talks with Cristiano Ronaldo at Carrington.

Sir Alex Ferguson is present at Carrington this morning where Manchester United will hold showdown talks with Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes. The legendary Old Trafford boss is expected to have some involvement in United’s plan to convince Ronaldo to stay with the club for the upcoming season, as Mendes continues to push his client towards the exit door.

The super-agent is continuing to work on finding Ronaldo a new club and has offered the 37-year-old to a number of European giants.

Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona were all presented with the chance to land the seasoned veteran but all three clubs turned down the opening.

Atletico Madrid are now reportedly Ronaldo’s preferred destination of choice, although they must raise significant funds in order to make a play for the forward.

According to the Manchester Evening news , Ferguson was spotted arriving at United’s training complex on Tuesday morning.

Although the reasons for his attendance are unspecified, he is expected to hold dialogue with Ronaldo in a bid to help United resolve his future.

Erik ten Hag is due to meet with his new striker for face-to-face talks to determine whether he is committed to United ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The Dutchman is willing to persist with Ronaldo for the final year of his contract (although it does contain the option for an additional 12 months) but with the season less than two weeks out, United need commitment from their player.

Ronaldo in now back in the North East after returning from Lisbon having missed United’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia due to ‘family reasons’.

United are considering the option of allowing Ronaldo to leave Old Trafford on loan – a stance that surprised the forward.

Joining Ronaldo at Carrington this Tuesday is new United signing Christian Eriksen, who signed for the club on a free following his half-season with Brentford, and, rather awkwardly, pulled up at the training ground at the same time as Ferguson.

Lisandro Martinez will also meet his new teammates despite his £57million transfer from Ajax still yet to be officially confirmed.
