Sir Alex Ferguson is present at Carrington this morning where Manchester United will hold showdown talks with Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes. The legendary Old Trafford boss is expected to have some involvement in United’s plan to convince Ronaldo to stay with the club for the upcoming season, as Mendes continues to push his client towards the exit door.
The super-agent is continuing to work on finding Ronaldo a new club and has offered the 37-year-old to a number of European giants.
Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona were all presented with the chance to land the seasoned veteran but all three clubs turned down the opening.
Atletico Madrid are now reportedly Ronaldo’s preferred destination of choice, although they must raise significant funds in order to make a play for the forward.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Ferguson was spotted arriving at United’s training complex on Tuesday morning.

When speaking on Ronaldo’s future last week, Ten Hag conceded that he has to focus his energy on the players that are committed to the club.
“It is the same as last week,” said Ten Hag when quizzed on his future.
“Of course. But concerning is maybe not the right word. I focus on the players who are there, they are doing really well, they are in good shape.
“I prefer to focus on that and develop that. I cannot wait for him to come in, then we will integrate him.”
Anthony Martial looks set to lead the line for United in their Premier League opener at home to Brighton following fine pre-season form.
