Cristiano Ronaldo arrives for Man Utd training amid transfer exit talks – and could be in for Brighton recall

    CRISTIANO RONALDO arrived at training this morning in line for a possible start on Sunday.

    The Manchester United star’s future has dominated headlines this summer, as he desperately seeks an Old Trafford exit.

    But with no transfer having yet materialised, he could find himself in the team on Sunday against Brighton.

    Ronaldo, 37, finally returned for pre-season training last week and was selected for United’s 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano.

    Having been substituted at half time following an under-par display, CR7 risked the wrath of Erik ten Hag by leaving the match ten minutes before it finished.

    Ten Hag, 52, was left fuming by the incident… but may have to start Ronaldo for his Prem opener regardless.

    Anthony Martial has been playing up front for United in pre-season – getting on the scoresheet and looking rejuvenated.

    But the Frenchman has picked up a hamstring injury, leaving Ronaldo as United’s only fit senior striker.

    Gary Neville has called on United to flog Ronaldo for the good of the club.

    While Jamie Carragher has mocked that no one wants him.

    Like Neville, former United ace Paul Parker reckons that his old team have to let Ronaldo go.

    One shock contender to sign him that has emerged is Brazilian side Corinthians.

    Moving to South America could see the Portuguese link up with former Premier League winner Willian – but it’s doubtful that he’d want to leave Europe.
