Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo were just sharing 'joke' in 'frosty' meeting

Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes were apparently sharing a joke when they met up for Portugal's World Cup campaign.

Ronaldo's 'shocking' interview where he explains that he feels that Manchester United have tried forcing him out of the club is set to air on Wednesday and Thursday.

There are already enough teasers for the hour and a half long chat that everyone knows the biggest headlines coming out of it.

His criticism of United and manager Erik ten Hag looks to have cost him the maximum fine of two weeks wages and the Dutchman reportedly never wants to see the forward in a United shirt again.

Ronaldo's claims that he's being forced out on the club rather fall on deaf ears considering he spent the summer wanting to leave Old Trafford.

Even his fellow players were reportedly 'fed up' of the 37-year-old following his summer antics, so lord knows how they're feeling about him now.

It certainly seemed to have perturbed Fernandes, with footage of the pair greeting each other at Portugal's World Cup meeting going viral.

There was an awkward handshake and some words exchanged between the two, leading to fans thinking all wasn't right, but that apparently isn't the case.

According to the Athletic, a source claims that they were simply sharing a joke about Bruno's flight from England arriving late and there's no problems between the pair.

Fellow Portugal teammate Joao Mario confirmed that claim, saying, "It was a joke between them, Bruno was one of the last to arrive at the camp and Cristiano asked him, 'Did you come on a boat?'"

Ronaldo was able to fly out to meet up with the squad early having been too ill to take part in the club's final two games before the six week break for the World Cup.

Just over a week ago he'd been named captain by Ten Hag, just a couple of weeks after the forward refused to be subbed on against Tottenham Hotspur.

He then missed the Carabao Cup win against Aston Villa and Sunday's win over Fulham, something that YouTuber Speed was particularly annoyed by.

Alejandro Garnacho became the newest hero for the club, with his injury time winner in the Premier League game against Fulham.

According to some reports, players were not impressed that the news of the interview came out just hours after their win, taking the shine off the Argentine youngster's moment.

Ronaldo has often found himself defended by former teammates from his first stint in England, but he also appears to be burning bridges there too.

In the interview he takes digs at both Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville, claiming the former is actually jealous that the five time Ballon d'Or winner is still playing.

Neville replied to the idea that Ronaldo wouldn't go for dinner with him, taking to social media to ask if anyone else would go to dinner.
