Erik ten Hag will hold showdown talks with banished superstar Cristiano Ronaldo THIS MORNING, with the Man United boss wanting to make sure the veteran has seen the error of his ways before re-integrating him

  • The Manchester United manager is keen to speak with his Portuguese superstar
  • Ronaldo refused to come on for United in Wednesday’s victory over Tottenham
  • Ten Hag then banished the 37-year-old United legend to train on his own 
  • Ronaldo was axed from the squad for the game with Chelsea on Saturday 

Erik ten Hag will hold clear-the-air talks with Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday morning in the hope of drawing a line under his fall-out with the Manchester United star.

Ronaldo was banished from first-team training and axed from the squad for Saturday’s draw at Chelsea after refusing to come on as a substitute in last week’s win over Tottenham and then leaving Old Trafford before full-time.

Ten Hag wants to speak to Ronaldo to make sure he has seen the error of his ways before re-integrating the 37-year-old.

The squad were given two days off after the Chelsea game — though Ten Hag and several players were at Carrington on Sunday — so today will be the first opportunity for the Dutchman to discuss the situation with Ronaldo again.

Ten Hag and the United hierarchy are keen to call a truce, possibly for the rest of the season but at least until January, when they could sign a replacement if Ronaldo leaves.

If Tuesday’s talks go well, Ronaldo could return to training with his team-mates and be in contention to play at home to Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League on Thursday.

Harry Maguire is also expected back in training this week after a month on the sidelines, giving Ten Hag another option in central defence after Raphael Varane was ruled out until the World Cup.
