do not expect to be on the plane for the first leg of their summer tour as the forward pushes for an exit from Old Trafford.

The 37-year-old missed a fourth straight day of training today, citing ‘family reasons’ for his absence.

Though United accept his excuse, they believed he would be available for the tour of Asia and Australasia where sponsors have paid huge amounts to have the likes of Ronaldo in Thailand and Australia.

But, with Ronaldo refusing to confirm when he will return, the Mail say United do not expect to have the veteran on the plane for the trip to Thailand.

It comes as Ronaldo attempts to navigate an exit from the club, with the striker informing the board last week that he wants to leave.

Chelsea are interested in signing Ronaldo but United will not considering selling the forward to a Premier League rival.

Though United maintain that Ronaldo is not for sale and that he has a year remaining on his deal, the club now privately accept that their future may be best served by letting him leave.

However, suitors outside of England are in short supply. Roma and Napoli are both said to be interested but couldn’t afford Ronaldo’s wages.

It comes as United reportedly set a £13m asking price for Ronaldo, which is what they paid for the Portugal captain just 11 months ago.
