Cristiano Ronaldo is set to undergo surgery in the next few days after discussing his condition with Manchester United officials for the first time since speaking of his desire to leave Old Trafford.
Ronaldo only met with club doctors, as well as medical staff from the Portuguese Football Association, to assess the the extent of his ankle injury.
“Manchester United medical staff met with the medical teams of the Portuguese FA and Cristiano Ronaldo in Lisbon on Wednesday regarding the ongoing treatment of an injury to his right ankle,” United said in a statement.
“As a result, further specialist advice is being sought and an announcement will be made on any action in due course.”
Ronaldo revealed after the European Championship that he had been playing with a foot injury.
The meeting with United officials is reported to be the first time this summer that Ronaldo has spoken to his club since Real Madrid’s pursuit of the 23-year-old became public.
