Cristiano Ronaldo has reacted to Manchester United’s defeat to Atletico Madrid in a pre-season match on Saturday.
The 37-year-old returned to United training ground during the week ahead of their pre-season friendly against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.
It would be the football icon’s first pre-season game for Manchester United as he has taken no part in their previous pre-season preparations.
Ronaldo is reportedly pushing to leave Old Trafford this summer as he is keen to continue playing in the Champions League next season.
The former Real Madrid and Juventus star is now preparing to join back up with his United teammates as he took part in a training session at Carrington on Saturday.
The 37-year-old posed alongside Amad Diallo, Charlie Savage, Hannibal Mejbri and Daniel Gore for a photo on Instagram which included the caption: “Working in progress,” after United lost their first game under Erik ten Hag.
On Friday, Ronaldo signalled his intent to play against Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford as he wrote on Instagram: “Sunday, the king plays.”
