Cristiano Ronaldo has left Spain after two days training with Real Madrid to head to Dubai.
The former Manchester United star has been keeping himself in shape at Madrid’s training facility as he attempts to find a new club.
Ronaldo had been given the green light to train at Madrid’s training base after Portugal’s World Cup exit, but DAZN have reported that he has now headed to Dubai in his private plane.
Cristiano Ronaldo has left Spain after two days training with former club Real Madrid
On Thursday, Ronaldo has trained at Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training ground for a second day as the 37-year-old looks to keep in shape as he searches for a new club.
The Portuguese star trained alone at the facility on Wednesday, according to Spanish outlet Relevo, following his country’s World Cup exit.
Ronaldo has been a free agent since mutually terminating his contract with Manchester United last month in the wake of his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

One interested party in Ronaldo’s services is reportedly Antero Henrique, head of the Qatar Stars League.
Henrique is said to have gone straight to Ronaldo – above his agent Jorge Mendes – to express an interest in bringing him back to the gulf nation following the World Cup.
He is hoping Ronaldo will join a Qatari club but Mendes is working on a different proposal it has been claimed.
There had also been reports that Ronaldo could join Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr on January 1.
But sources close to Ronaldo told Sportsmail reports of a deal being complete were ‘nonsense’.
Ronaldo asked Real Madrid president Florentino Perez if he could train at Valdebebas for a few days following his country’s defeat to Morocco in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Qatar.
Ronaldo cemented his legacy as one of the greats during his time at Real Madrid
Ronaldo cemented his legacy as one of football’s greatest ever players during his nine-year stint at the Santiago Bernabeu after moving to Spain in a then world-record £80million deal from Man United.
He won two LaLiga titles and four Champions League trophies at Real, while four of his five Ballon d’Or trophies were awarded to him during his time at the club.
It would have been emotional for Ronaldo to return to the club’s training ground after what has been a tumultuous period for the Portuguese forward since he swapped Real for Juventus in 2018.
But he had to train away from the club’s current batch of players, who are being led by his former manager Carlo Ancelotti.
