Erik Ten Hag insists Manchester United are not ready to sell forward Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

New Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has stated that Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sell this summer, according to report.

There are speculations that the former Juventus star want to leave the Red Devils this summer as clubs like Chelsea, Barcelona and Bayern Munich want to sign the forward.

Ronaldo didn’t resume for preseason training and not part of the squad that travel to Thailand due to family issue.

Ten Hag stated that he had a talk with Ronaldo before news broke that the former Real Madrid player wants to leave.

He’s not with us and it’s due to personal issues,” Ten Hag said at a news conference on Monday.

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

“I have read [that he wants to leave] but what I say is Cristiano is not for sale, he is in our plans and we want success together.

“I spoke with him before this issue came up, I had a conversation with him and I had a good talk. That is between Cristiano and me, what I can confirm is we had a really good conversation together.”

Former Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen is expected to sign a three-year deal following a medical and could join up with the squad in Australia.

“We know what we want,” Ten Hag said.

“We not only want new players, we want the right new players. We have a good squad, there’s huge potential, only when we find them is there an improvement in our squad we will do.

“Definitely we are searching for players in midfield. We have a need and we are still looking for players.

“It’s going to be a long season but a season that is quite unusual due to the World Cup so you need to be prepared for this and need more players than in a normal season.”
