CRISTIANO RONALDO has been pictured signing a young boy’s shirt as he arrives at Manchester United training – while his agent tries to get him off.
The 37-year-old superstar’s future remains uncertain in the final days of the transfer window.
Ronaldo is known to have made his desire to play for a club in the Champions League very clear.
And so far he seems to have a frosty relationship with new boss Erik ten Hag, who he clashed with during pre-season and struggled to work his way through his starting line-ups.
With days left in that window, Ronaldo was spotted arriving at Carrington following United’s win at Southampton at the weekend.
The striker stops his car to sign a young boy’s football shirt.
The youngster is dressed in a full United kit and even has Ronaldo’s name and number on the back.
He waved to the star as Ronaldo, accompanied by his team-mates and manager, arrived for training today.
Whether Ronaldo will continue as a Red Devils player in the coming days remains to be seen.
The Portugal international has been linked with many different clubs this summer, and his agent Jorge Mendes is said to be still on the loose.

Mendes has once again turned his attention to Chelsea, who have reportedly already turned down the chance to bring Ronaldo to Stamford Bridge.
This is despite the agent meeting new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly earlier this summer.
Thomas Tuchel has been reported as not being in favor of Ronaldo’s arrival, with the club focusing their efforts on former Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
But that deal has stalled, with reports claiming the striker wants more than a year.
According to the Independent, this has led Ronaldo’s representative to return to Chelsea to investigate the possibility of resurrecting a deal for the striker.
Italian side Napoli have also been linked with the star in recent days as Ronaldo’s side explore their options to escape Old Trafford.
Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti has admitted that “no coach would say no” to Ronaldo, but the club are unwilling to lose striker Victor Osimhen in a swap deal.
There have also been rumors that Ronaldo has moved to Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon.
