According to various reports, CR7 wants to leave Man Utd and won’t be returning to Carrington today.
Cristiano Ronaldo won’t report back for pre-season training with Manchester United.
On Monday morning, most of the first-team players who missed last week’s training returned. These included Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, Fred, and Raphael Varane. The club gave them all extra time off for a holiday after they represented their national teams last month.
Ronaldo, however, has not shown up in Carrington after a report on Saturday claimed he handed in a transfer request.

But Sky Sports has stated the forward’s absence is down to family reasons and Manchester United have accepted this explanation.
The Red Devils maintain, though, that Ronaldo is not for sale. The Portugal captain is under contract until next year and the club want him to honor it. They also have an option to extend it by another 12 months.
It’s understood Ronaldo has not directly spoken to new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag yet.
