CRISTIANO RONALDO is set to take part in a bombshell interview to clarify his Manchester United future.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is looking to leave Old Trafford after the Red Devils failed to qualify for the Champions League last season.
United initially refused to sell the Portuguese superstar, insisting he would see the rest of his deal at the Theater of Dreams.
But Erik ten Hag has conceded his side would be better off without the 37-year-old, who plans to tell his side of the turbulent story in the coming weeks.
He wrote on Instagram: “You’ll know the truth when you do an interview in a few weeks. The media tells lies.
“I have a notebook and in the last few months of the 100 messages I’ve made, only 5 of them were correct.
“Imagine what it’s like. Stick with this tip.”
Ronaldo revealed the news of his forthcoming in-depth interview in response to reports that he had offered himself to numerous clubs in Europe.
The former Real Madrid player added: “Ab boys passed there very quickly. It’s been a long time since I came.”
Ronaldo is keen to leave United to continue playing Champions League football, although club boss Joel Glazer is keen on keeping his services.

The striker believes he has two or three more years to play at the top level and doesn’t want to waste his time in the Europa League.
Ten Hag originally planned for the club legend to become part of his squad this season but isn’t opposed to the idea of him leaving the club before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
Ronaldo made an emotional return to Old Trafford last September, signing a two-year deal with the Red Devils.
The Portuguese was the shining light in an otherwise dismal season for United, who finished the season in sixth place.
Ronaldo has scored 24 goals and three assists in 39 appearances in all competitions.
But he has yet to find the back of the net in the first two games of the new season they left VALLEY FLOOR the Premier League table.
