CRISTIANO RONALDO was a no-show at Carrington on the last day of training before Manchester United jet off on their pre-season tour.
The 37-year-old has not returned to United’s HQ since sensationally asking to leave the club last weekend.

Erik ten Hag and his squad were pictured rolling through the doors this morning in an assortment of fancy motors.
But again Ronaldo was nowhere to be seen.
The superstar forward did not return on Monday after his summer break due to family reasons.
And now he has missed the final training session before tomorrow’s flight to Bangkok and Tuesday’s clash against Liverpool.

Ronaldo though has thrown his place on the tour to Thailand, Australia and Norway into serious jeopardy.
SunSport exclusively revealed last night that Manchester United have accepted they will lose Ronaldo this summer.
Reports this morning suggested Chelsea are lining up a £14million bid for the Portuguese ace.
As revealed by SunSport, new owner Todd Boehly is a huge fan of Ronaldo and eager to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Red Devils manager Ten Hag had wanted Ronaldo to stay at the club but is now resigned to losing the star forward.
Ronaldo wants to continue playing in the Champions League – something United cannot offer him.
Aside from Chelsea, Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich were linked but have now ruled out a move for the forward.
Club director Oliver Kahn told Kicker, he said: “As much as I appreciate Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the greatest players, a move would not fit into our philosophy.”
