Not summoned for today’s match against Atletico Madrid, the Portuguese will take the field the following day.

Cristiano Ronaldo is in. The Portuguese player, who returned to Manchester only a few days ago after missing the Red Devils’ Asia and Oceania tours, is ready for his return to the field. Which will not take place in the match against Atletico Madrid, where waiting for him would presumably be the protests of the Colchoneros fans, who have already made clear their opposition to CR7’s possible arrival in Madrid, but the following day.

Already because coach Erik ten Hag has arranged a double friendly, 24 hours apart, to allow especially those who will not take the field in the first match, to do so in the second. Having not even been convoked for the challenge to Diego Simeone’s eleven, Ronaldo will not return until Sunday. The opponent is always a Spanish outfit, Rayo Vallecano, and the theater is Old Trafford, United’s home ground. Could this be the Lusitano’s last match in the Red Devils’ historic jersey? The champion’s future is still more than uncertain.
