In private talks with Sir Alex Ferguson, Cristiano Ronaldo discusses Manchester United's future.

Cristiano Ronaldo is said to have met privately with Sir Alex Ferguson to discuss his future at Manchester United.

After being signed as an 18-year-old, the Portuguese superstar spent six seasons at Old Trafford under the great boss.

He returned to the club last summer after a 12-year absence at Real Madrid and Juventus, with Ferguson playing a key role in securing the deal by persuading Ronaldo not to join Manchester City's rivals.

Ronaldo and Ferguson have reportedly had regular discussions at their respective houses in Cheshire, according to the Mirror.

According to the story, the two have discussed how United's season has crumbled, but Ferguson wants Ronaldo to stay for at least another year to 'guard his legacy.'

Since joining the club for £12.85 million from Juventus last August, the attacker has scored 24 goals in 38 games, more than any other player in the squad.

However, his efforts have not been enough to save United from an ugly season at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have been eliminated from the Champions League and will end with their lowest Premier League point total ever.

This summer, Erik ten Hag will take over as manager and strive to transform the club, but it is unclear whether Ronaldo will be part of his ambitions. The 37-year-deal old's is set to expire in 2023, with United having the option to extend it for another year.
