Cristiano Ronaldo signs boy's shirt as he arrives at Man Utd training while agent desperately tries to secure transfer | The Sun

CRISTIANO RONALDO has been snapped signing a young boy's shirt as he arrives at Manchester United training – all while his agent tries to get him a move away.

The 37-year-old superstar's future remains in doubt in the final days of the transfer window.

Ronaldo is known to have made clear his feelings of wanting to play for a club in the Champions League.

And so far he appears to have a frosty relationship with new boss Erik ten Hag, who he clashed with during pre-season and has struggled to find his way into his starting line-ups.

With days remaining in this window, Ronaldo has been spotted arriving at Carrington following United's win at Southampton over the weekend.

The forward stops his car to sign a young boy's football shirt.

The youngster is decked out in full United kit and even has Ronaldo's name and number on the back.

He greeted the star as Ronaldo, along with his teammates and manager, arrived for training today.

Whether Ronaldo will continue to still be a Red Devils player in the coming days remains to be seen.

The Portuguese international has been linked to many different clubs this summer, and his agent Jorge Mendes is still reported as being on manoeuvres.

Mendes has turned his attention back to Chelsea who are believed to have already turned down the chance of bringing Ronaldo to the Stamford Bridge.

This is despite the agent meeting with new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly earlier this summer.

Thomas Tuchel was reported as being not in favour of bringing in Ronaldo, with the club focusing their efforts on former Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But that deal has stalled, with reports claiming that the forward wants more than a one-year deal.

According to the Independent, this has led Ronaldo's representative to return to Chelsea to investigate whether they would resurrect a deal for the forward.

Italian side Napoli have also been linked to the star in recent days as Ronaldo's team explores his options of how to escape Old Trafford.

Boss at the Naples side Luciano Spalletti admitted that "no coach would say no" to Ronaldo, but the club do not want to lose their forward ace Victor Osimhen in any swap deal.

There have also been rumours of Ronaldo making the switch to Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon.
