The Red Devils expect Cristiano Ronaldo to make his squad return in the pre-season fixture
Manchester United will be back in action against Rayo Vallecano at home just a little over 24 hours after their 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in Norway on Saturday. This will be the first time that Erik ten Hag will sit in the dugout at Old Trafford after taking charge of the team.

Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the United squad and should play a role in the game against Vallecano. Although there are still significant doubts over his future, the Portuguese international himself confirmed on Friday that he will take the pitch against the Spanish outfit.
“Tomorrow he will be in the squad. We’ll see how long he can play,” stated Ten Hag on Ronaldo in additional confirmation of the squad news.
The Dutch tactician is expected to make several changes to the XI that started against Atletico as the two games are being played in close proximity.
“The players who played today from the start, they will not come on tomorrow. So tomorrow we will have a different starting XI. But there are players who came on who can start tomorrow,” the coach confirmed.
