Manchester United have reiterated that Cristiano Ronaldo is 'not for sale' as rumours continue to swirl surrounding his future.

The 37-year-old has requested to leave Old Trafford if the club receive a 'satisfactory offer' for him this summer, according to a report from The Times.

They claim Ronaldo's decision is driven by a desire to play in the Champions League for the rest of his career.

Portugal's all-time top goalscorer, who believes he has 'three or four years' left at the highest level, has been linked with moves to Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Roma this summer.

And with a year left on his current deal at United, who will play in the Europa League this season, it appears the experienced forward is considering his options.

That being said, United are standing firm. Manchester Evening News reporter Samuel Luckhurst provided an update on the ongoing situation earlier.

Just like they said earlier in the week, when reports emerged surrounding Chelsea's interest in Ronaldo, the club want to make it known that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is not for sale.

Last month, the forward's agent, Jorge Mendes, reportedly held discussions over a possible transfer with Chelsea owner Todd Boehly.

According to The Athletic, Boehly met Mendes in Portugal, where talks of Ronaldo making a move to Stamford Bridge this summer were discussed.

Last month, ​it was reported that Jose Mourinho's Roma are 'trying everything' to sign Ronaldo from Manchester United.

Fabio Petruzzi, who played at Roma for 11 years, told Italian outlet Retesport that he has information from his old club confirming they are in pursuit of the Portugal international.

"I know for sure from a very accredited person who works in the world of football that Roma is trying in every way to take Cristiano Ronaldo," he said. "There would be some details to file, especially on image rights. CR7 will leave United."
