With only a few days left under Louis van Gaal's reign, Ronaldo will be quizzed by Manchester United as to when he can begin training with Erik ten Hag's team.

Ten Hag has not yet had the opportunity to work with the 37-year-old, who wants to leave Brighton, when the two teams meet at Old Trafford on August 7.

Ronaldo was unable to begin training prior to United's summer tour of Thailand and Australia because of a family matter.

The manager of Manchester United said on Friday that he hasn't heard from Cristiano Ronaldo, and Ronaldo hasn't returned his phone calls.

It's time to start training for Cristiano Ronaldo. Because of Ten Hag's lack of preparation, even if this was to happen by Tuesday, Ronaldo may not be able to play against Brighton.

Ronaldo has missed the entire preseason so far, putting him four weeks behind those who began training last month. After hosting Liverpool on the 23rd, Manchester United will travel to Brentford.
