The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has been reintroduced to the Red Devils first team after being dropped from the squad last weekend.

This came after the Portuguese superstar after refused to come on against Tottenham Hotspur and then walked off to the dressing room before the match was even over.

Having missed the Red Devils' game against Chelsea this past weekend as a result, Ten Hag has confirmed that Ronaldo is in contention to start for the Mancunians against FC Sheriff Tiraspol in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday after their disagreement was squashed.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has now seemingly revealed what led to the resolution of tensions between them.

"We know how complicated things got for Cristiano Ronaldo last week. He left Old Trafford early in the Tottenham game, so Erik ten Hag decided he had to be dropped," Romano said, as per Caught Offside.

"He decided together with the board, and Ronaldo was left out of Ten Hag's squad for the Chelsea game.

"Cristiano understood it was not the best way to act. It's important to mention he's now back in contention for the first team, we will see him get an opportunity again. He's 100% available.

"But what happened with his talks with Ten Hag? I'm told they have been in constant, direct contact, and it was positive.

"Ronaldo was really sorry, but also Ten Hag understood the player wanted to be involved more. They spoke about it, they had multiple conversations, and they decided to shake hands and now Ronaldo is back in the United first team.

"We will now see if [Ronaldo's agent] Jorge Mendes will continue to try to find a club for Ronaldo in January, but we know it won't be easy to get such a big deal done in the middle of the season.

"United would also have to find a new striker, and again it's not easy to find top players in January.
