CRISTIANO RONALDO was snapped signing a boy’s shirt as he arrived at Manchester United training – while his agent tried to pull him away.
The 37-year-old superstar’s future remains uncertain in the final days of the transfer window.
Ronaldo is known to have made it clear that he wants to play for a club in the Champions League.
And so far he seems to have a frosty relationship with new boss Erik ten Hag, who he clashed with in preseason and struggled to find his way into his starting line-up.
With days left in this window, Ronaldo was spotted making his arrival at Carrington following United’s win at Southampton over the weekend.
The striker stops his car to sign a boy’s football shirt.
The youngster wears the full United kit and even has Ronaldo’s name and number on the back.
Whether Ronaldo will still be 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 still be on manoeuvres.
Mendes has turned his attention back to Chelsea, who are believed to have already turned down the chance to bring Ronaldo to Stamford Bridge.

This is despite the agents meeting with new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly earlier this summer.
It has been reported that Thomas Tuchel is not in favor of signing Ronaldo, with the club focusing on former Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
But that deal has stalled with reports claiming the striker wants more than a one-year deal.
According to The Independent, this has prompted Ronaldo’s representative to return to Chelsea to investigate whether they would revive a deal for the striker.
Italian club Napoli have also been linked with the star in recent days as Ronaldo’s team explored his options to escape Old Trafford.
Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti admitted “no manager would say no” to Ronaldo, but the club don’t want to lose their ace striker Victor Osimhen in any swap deal.
There were also rumors of Ronaldo moving to Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon.
