Erik ten Hag says Manchester United are now looking to the future after talks with Cristiano Ronaldo.

United terminated Ronaldo's contract by mutual consent last month after the 37-year-old striker gave an unauthorised interview to Piers.

The Hag was now dealing with the situation for the first time. "It's gone and it's the past," "Now we look forward and look to the future."

United travelled to Spain for a winter training session before returning to competitive football after the World Cup. They face Cadiz and Real Betis in friendlies before returning.

Ronaldo is currently away at the World Cup with Portugal, who reached the quarter-finals with a commanding 6-1 win over Switzerland on Tuesday night.

He is currently a free agent and has painted his departure from United as a chance to find a new challenge. But I feel the time is right for me to look for a new challenge."

"Some people don't want me here — not just the coach, but the other two or three guys. Not just this year, but last year, too."

Ronaldo has been offered £173 million a year to join Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr. He is reportedly still waiting for a Champions League club, so he has not accepted the offer.
