(HD Video) Cristiano Ronaldo Loves Playing with Pepe Again

The Portuguese ace shared a picture of himself on Instagram from the training ground, where he was seen participating in regular drills with the rest of the squad.

He captioned the image ‘step by step’ with the hashtag ‘hard work’.

That suggests Ronaldo is slowly working his way to fitness after missing a large chunk of his team’s pre-season campaign.

The prolific United number 7 was conspicuous by his absence from the team’s Thailand, Australia and Norway trips. He did make a 45-minute appearance on Sunday in their final friendly of the summer at Old Trafford.

He left before the full-time whistle, which not only drew flak from fans but also intensified his exit rumours as the former Real Madrid ace is seeking new pastures. With no club making a bid for Ronaldo, his future is coming increasingly under the scanner as the transfer window shuts in under a month from now.

In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag challenged the star to prove himself while insisting that he fits into his system.

Now, with Ronaldo posting images of training hard and preparing for the new season ahead, it could pour cold water over his transfer rumours for now. His latest social media post is also a rebuff to claims that he doesn’t care about the club anymore or the barbs directed at him for leaving the stadium early.

Despite all the uncertainty, Ronaldo has showed up for training right before the new season, which displays his professionalism and respect for United.
