Speaking about Ronaldo's future during pre-season Ten Hag said, "He hasn't told me this. I have read, but as I say, Cristiano is not for sale, he's in our plans and we want to get success together.
United have continued to say that Ronaldo is not for sale during the weeks that followed.
Despite this Ronaldo, who was United’s top scorer with 24 goals last season, has been training at the Portuguese national team’s headquarters in Lisbon.
Manchester United start their Premier League campaign against Brighton on August 7 and will look to solve the matter as quickly as possible.
Ten Hag speaking last Friday added: "I focus on the players who are there. They are doing really well. They are in good shape, so I prefer to focus on that and develop that," Ten Hag said. "I cannot wait for him (Ronaldo) to come in. Then we will integrate him."
