Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is prepared to see Cristiano Ronaldo leave before the market shuts.

The Athletic reports Ten Hag has now changed his mind and is open to letting Ronaldo leave, citing his difficult reintegration back into the squad after he missed most of pre-season due to family reasons.

The report claims that since returning to the fold, there have been days where Ronaldo sits by himself during lunch at the canteen at their Carrington training ground.

There have also been instances of him flapping his arms about in training and trying to argue against the high-pressing approach implemented by Ten Hag.

While Ronaldo is said to be training well, he exchanged words with Ten Hag's No 2 Steve McClaren at the final whistle after refusing to applaud United's travelling fans, and there is a feeling that his mood is having a negative effect on the dressing room.
