– The king plays on Sunday, replied the 37-year-old man post to a fan account on Instagram with nearly 850,000 followers, thus hinting that he will play a training match against Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Before that, most of United’s squad will face Atletico Madrid at Ullevaal.
Match starts at 1:45 pm Saturday afternoon. Big English clubs have brought a top crew to Norway – but the Portuguese are not included.
The story surrounding his club’s future continues. The Portuguese coach is rumored to want to leave the club, while United will not let him go. Raphael Varane, who is struggling with injuries, did not exit the plane door either.
With Oslo, on the other hand, are new signings Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.
In the photo gallery at the top of the case, you can also see stars like Jadon Sancho, Victor Lindelöf, Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire stepping onto the runway at Gardermoen.
The training match against Atletico will be the last for United’s top-flight crew before the Premier League season awaits. Also on Sunday, the day after the game at Ullevaal, a training match against Rayo Vallecano is in the program, but here it is hoped that Erik ten Hag will use a weaker team (except Crisitano Ronaldo, then).
Here, it may also happen that Norway’s Isak Hansen-Aarøen (17) makes his A-team debut, as he has training with the first team this week.
Sunday 7 August is the league’s opener against Brighton.
