Ronaldo Agrees To Play For Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo has said he will play in Sunday’s friendly between Manchester United and Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford despite continued rumors over his future with the English powerhouses.

The 37-year-old Portuguese forward wants to quit the team he rejoined last year, according to reports. He missed the club’s preseason tour to Thailand and Australia due to personal obligations.

The United team that traveled to Oslo on Saturday to play Atletico Madrid did not include Ronaldo.

However, he hinted on Instagram that he might play Rayo Vallecano, another La Liga team.

Regarding his absence from the game in Norway, Cristiano Ronaldo said on a fan page’s post on Friday: “Domingo o rei joga” which translates as “Sunday the king plays.”

According to United, there are a number of fresh signings on the list of the 21-man traveling squad for the Atletico encounter. Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez—“will take part in Sunday’s game against Rayo Vallecano, while others are ill or injured.”

Erik ten Hag, the new United manager, insisted earlier this month that Ronaldo was “not for sale.”

“We are planning for Cristiano Ronaldo for the season and that’s it and I’m looking forward to working with him,” he said.

“I have read it, but what I say is Cristiano is not for sale. He is in our plans and we want success together.”

With 24 goals last season, the former Real Madrid and Juventus star was United’s leading scorer.

A sixth-place result in the Premier League prevented the club from earning a spot in the Champions League, making the campaign as a whole a significant disappointment for the team.

On August 7, United hosts Brighton in the Premier League opener for both teams.
