Ronaldo and other United players involved during the June internationals have not yet returned to pre-season at Carrington, but they are due to do so next week before their tour to Thailand, Australia and Norway begins. That's when Fernandes and Ronaldo will be reunited.
Speaking to O Jogo, Fernandes said: "What I hope is that Cristiano will be there with me on Monday, that he's one of those who will come back later because of the Seleção's games and I'm not waiting for nothing more than that.
"As far as I know there is nothing more than that, but everyone knows their future.
"I don't believe the club is willing to lose a value like Cristiano."
