What happened in talks between Cristiano Ronaldo & Erik ten Hag

An insight into what was said between Erik ten Hag and Cristiano Ronaldo after the Tottenham incident has been provided.

Cristiano Ronaldo tried to leave Manchester United during the summer transfer window, but his wages and age made any move difficult.

And after being reduced to a bit-part player this season, Ronaldo then left Old Trafford early following his side’s 2-0 win over Tottenham and was subsequently banned from the first-team by Ten Hag – training with the under-21 side on Friday and playing no part vs Chelsea over the weekend.

Now, Fabrizio Romano has shed some light on the situation:

“We know how complicated things got for Cristiano Ronaldo last week,” Romano said. “He left Old Trafford early in the Tottenham game, so Erik ten Hag decided he had to be dropped. He decided together with the board, and Ronaldo was left out of Ten Hag’s squad for the Chelsea game.

“Cristiano understood it was not the best way to act. It’s important to mention he’s now back in contention for the first-team, we will see him get an opportunity again. He’s 100% available. But what happened with his talks with Ten Hag? I’m told they have been in constant, direct contact, and it was positive. Ronaldo was really sorry, but also Ten Hag understood the player wanted to be involved more. They spoke about it, they had multiple conversations, and they decided to shake hands and now Ronaldo is back in the United first-team.

“We will now see if Jorge Mendes will continue to try to find a club for Ronaldo in January, but we know it won’t be easy to get such a big deal done in the middle of the season. United would also have to find a new striker, and again it’s not easy to find top players in January.

Manchester United’s next outing is against Sheriff in the Europa League on Thursday.
