Ronaldo says he will play
Ronaldo intends to play after returning to Manchester last week. Despite a desire to leave, there are no offers on the table.
He may not have a choice to stay put, however, it is worth remembering he did play for Juventus last season before forcing his move to Manchester United.
Ronaldo responded on Instagram to say, ‘Sunday the king plays’ after speculation over his future.
Ronaldo will receive a muted reception at Old Trafford, and will have to prove his commitment to fans, teammates and Erik ten Hag.
There is no guarantee he will start the game even if he is available. And of course, Erik ten Hag will have the final say, although he has always insisted the star would have a key role under him.
United’s game with Rayo Vallecano on Sunday kicks off at 4pm.
