It is unclear if the Portugal legend, 37, will be selected with his future up in the air.
And, with very little action in preseason – just 45 minutes last weekend against Rayo Vallecano – he may be short of match-sharpness.
But, that hasn’t deterred the five-time Ballon d’Or winner for declaring he is fit for purpose.
Ronaldo took to Instagram and shared a story of an image of himself with the words ‘Ready’ emblazoned on it.

Recent reports suggested Ronaldo had “put the squeeze” on new boss Erik ten Hag to start him against the Seagulls.
And in an astonishing turnaround, Ronaldo could end up leading the line on Sunday following an injury to Anthony Martial.
According to the Mirror, Ronnie has been “flying” in training sessions this week having only returned from holiday 10 days ago.
Despite wanting to leave, the veteran remains eager to play as many minutes as possible ahead of the World Cup.
And Ronaldo has informed Ten Hag he is ready to play tomorrow.
United’s new boss has several options to replace Martial, with youngsters Anthony Elanga and Alejandro Garnacho both available.
But Ronaldo’s recent training performances have given him food for thought.
The Portugal star’s quality was never in doubt, having scored 24 times last season despite United’s awful performances.
