Ten Hag confirms Ronaldo will be in Man Utd squad vs R

Cristiano Ronaldo will be part of Manchester United's squad for Sunday's pre-season friendly against Rayo Vallecano, manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed.

Ronaldo was not included in United's 21-man squad for Saturday's 1-0 friendly defeat to Atletico Madrid in Oslo, with the forward still wanting to leave the club after talks this week.

But in a comment on Instagram he suggested he would feature in United's final pre-season friendly match against Rayo at Old Trafford, saying: "Sunday, the King plays".

And Ten Hag has now confirmed that Ronaldo will be among the options available to him on Sunday, saying: "Tomorrow he will be in the squad. We'll see how long he can play.

Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes held meetings with United at Carrington on Tuesday, but his position remains unchanged and he wants to play for a club in the Champions League and win major trophies.
