Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag insists star man is not for sale

Erik ten Hag says Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale and remains in his plans.

Erik ten Hag says Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale and remains in his plans.

The 37-year-old forward returned to Old Trafford last summer in a shock switch from Juventus.

Ronaldo still has a season remaining on his deal but speculation is rife about a move for a player who is absent from United’s pre-season tour in Thailand and Australia due to a family issue.

“He’s not with us and it’s due to personal issues,” manager Erik ten Hag said.

“We are planning with Cristiano Ronaldo this season so that’s it. I’m looking forward to working with him.

Ten Hag also confirmed that Harry Maguire will remain as United captain after speculation over the role.
