Fabrizio Romano reports that Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, will not travel with Manchester United to Bangkok for the start of their pre-season tour. The Portuguese did not appear in training this week, citing family problems as the reason for his absence, which are still current. Manchester United accepted this situation and gave Ronaldo extra time to deal with personal issues.
Ronaldo’s manager Jorge Mendes is working hard to find a new club for Ronaldo, who wants to leave United. Ronaldo is disappointed by the transfer window and the lack of ambition at the club. United will play in the Europa League from autumn, and Ronaldo wants to play in the Champions League. United insists on keeping Ronaldo for next season, but the club is aware that he is very disappointed, adds Romano.
