Latest Football News From Manchester: Erik ten Hag confirms Cristiano Ronaldo return ahead of Manchester United vs Rayo Vallecano

The United boss will make his Old Trafford debut in the clubs final friendly of the summer. He has already confirmed that the starting line-up for that game will be entirely different to the XI that started the 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid in Norway on Saturday.

In fact, none of those who began the match will feature at all. But the main story will be the inclusion of Ronaldo.

The striker still wishes to leave the club and has not played at all in pre-season so far. However, on Friday, the Portugal captain wrote on Instagram: Sunday, the King plays.

Ronaldo has not featured for United since the 4-0 loss away at Brighton on May 7, having missed their pre-season tour due to family reasons. However, Ten Hag has confirmed the striker, who netted 24 times last season, will feature in Sundays game.

Speaking after the defeat to Atletico in Oslo, the Dutchman said: “Tomorrow he will be in the squad. Well see how long he can play.”
