Cristiano Ronaldo focused on the task at hand while completing a final training session with Juventus before his expected return to Manchester United.

The Portuguese will line up against their former club in the Champions League on Tuesday after training at the Juventus base in Turin on Monday morning.

Ronaldo remains a revered character at Old Trafford after originally emerging as one of the best players in the world under Sir Alex Ferguson's administration between 2003 and 2009.

In a six-year spell laden with trophies, Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 appearances before leaving for Real Madrid in a world record contract worth £ 80 million. Since then, he has been linked regularly with a return to the club.

However, his chances of playing with United's red shirt seemed to evaporate this summer when he joined Juventus. Now he will seek to make a dent in his ambitions for the Champions League to benefit his team.

Training with Paulo Dybala and Leonardo Bonucci, among others, on Monday morning, the 33-year-old did not seem disturbed by the recent upheaval in his personal life, in which he was accused of rape by model Kathryn Mayorga.

Ronaldo vehemently denies the allegations brought against him by the US model, who says he was raped by the footballer at a hotel in Las Vegas in 2009 and then paid £ 288,000 to sign a confidentiality agreement.

The details of the alleged incident, which Ronaldo dismissed as "false news", emerged shortly after his move from Real Madrid for 100 million pounds. Juventus committed to around 250 million pounds to sign the five-time winner of the Golden Ball to account for transfer rates and salaries and since then has given all its support.

Shares in Juventus have fallen 37 percent since Las Vegas police said they would re-investigate the alleged crime, while one of Ronaldo's main sponsors, Nike, said he was "deeply concerned."

Ronaldo argues that what happened after a night of drinking in a Las Vegas nightclub was consensual, while his lawyer said the non-disclosure agreement with Mayorga was "in no way a guilty plea."

In the most recent development, Ronaldo's older brother dismissed the accusations as "trash" and says his home island of Madeira "will be behind him."

Hugo Aveiro, 43, who still lives in the island's capital, Funchal, and runs the CR7 Museum, told The Times: "My brother is a hero in Madeira, he has a great impact here because he has done a lot for the island.

& # 39; Around half a million people go to the [CR7] museum every year. My brother usually returns for New Year's Eve because it is our mother's birthday, there are many fireworks, although this year I could be here or in Dubai.

& # 39; People here are defensive of him because everyone knows him. Local news only says good things and people will be behind it. It is an icon of Madeira.
