Five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or Cristiano Ronaldo shared a hot workout photo on Saturday, amid transfer rumors surrounding the striker. Ronaldo, 37, flaunted his incredible physique once more by uploading a photo from his workout session. The Portuguese forward can be seen doing crunches in the photo, which he captioned with a muscle emoji. Ronaldo’s chiseled abs are clearly visible in the two images he posted, and there is no sign of fat on his body. Manchester United’s leading scorer continues to train despite ongoing speculation about his future in the coming season. He has previously stated his intention to leave Old Trafford in search of a new team in order to compete in the Champions League. Ronaldo did not travel to Thailand for United’s pre-season tour, and he is also expected to miss the Red Devils’ upcoming tour to Australia due to family obligations. Several clubs have expressed interest in signing the footballer. However, high-profile European clubs such as Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain have shown little interest in Ronaldo. Real Madrid is also said to be unwilling to re-sign the United legend because the club’s priority is to sell players who are no longer needed before adding new ones. Ronaldo is said to have turned down a $277 million salary offer from an unnamed Saudi Arabia club.
Man United’s new manager, Erik ten Hag, has stated that Ronaldo is a perfect fit for the upcoming season. He has, however, admitted that he has yet to hear from Ronaldo since he made the surprising claim of leaving the club. The former Ajax manager is also unsure when Ronaldo will resume training. The club has been trying to be patient with Ronaldo while avoiding putting any pressure on him. After a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa in Perth, United flew back home on a 20-hour flight via Bangkok. Man United will play Atletico Madrid in an exhibition match in Oslo on July 30. The following day, United will face Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford.
