MANCHESTER UNITED superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Portugal amid questions about his future at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo will be the captain of the Portuguese national team during the upcoming Nations League matches against Spain, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.
The Real Madrid legend has joined United teammates Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot to train in Oeiras alongside the rest of Fernando Santos players after a turbulent campaign.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was the Red Devils’ saving grace during the club’s worst Premier League season and he still has one year left to run on his contract.
Ronaldo has been linked to an outing this summer following the arrival of new manager Erik ten Hag.
However, Ten Hag confirmed that he wants the 37-year-old to stay for the next term.
After being asked if the Portugal captain is in his plans, the Dutchman replied: “Sure!”
The 52-year-old was then asked what Ronaldo brings, to which he replied “goal”.
Ten Hag then confirmed that he wanted to talk to the former Juventus star to explain exactly what he wants from him next season.
Ronaldo returned to United last summer and amassed a staggering 24 goals and three assists in 39 games in all competitions.

This brought his total tally to 142 goals and 71 assists in 330 games in two bouts with the Manchester giants.
But if CR7 ultimately stays at Old Trafford, he’ll have to lose the Champions League next season.
