There were rumors of a transfer, but Cristiano Ronaldo still remains at Manchester United. The Portuguese star recently said on social media, “The King will play”. Although he was not seen in the team against Atletico Madrid in the last match. So when is he entering the field? United coach Eric Ten Haag gave that answer.
The Portuguese superstar has yet to play a match under United’s new coach Ten Haag. He was also absent from the club’s pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia due to family reasons. He is finally returning to the field.
Sunday night (31 July) at 9pm, the Manchester club will play in a friendly match against Spanish club Rayo Vallecano, in which Ronaldo will play. Confirming the fact, Dutch coach Haag said, ‘He will play against Rayo. Yes, he will be kept in the team. We will see how long he can play.’
The 37-year-old star returned to United’s derby last week to discuss a transfer with the club. Although there was no fruitful discussion, he could not even change his address. But this time it is right to return for Man U. He is also playing for the first time under Ten Hague.
Two days ago, Ronaldo commented on a fan account’s post on Instagram, ‘Domingo and hey Jaga’. The Portuguese Bengali version of this phrase is, ‘Robbar Raja is playing’.
