(HD Video) Cristiano Ronaldo’s Unbelievable Football Moments

The Portuguese superstar has 12 months remaining on his £360,000-a-week deal at Manchester United but stated his desire to leave the club earlier this summer as he looks to pursue Champions League football.

The 37-year-old forward was also absent from United’s pre-season tour of Bangkok and Australia after the club granted him some additional time off to deal with a family issue.

Ronaldo made his United return against Spanish outfit Rayo Vallecano – playing just 45 minutes before departing the ground ahead of the full-time whistle.

Therefore, Erik ten Hag has decided that Ronaldo will start United’s opening game of the Premier League season against Brighton on the bench, according to The Sun.

The Dutch manager is set to reward Jadon Sancho, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford with a place in the starting XI after impressing during their pre-season campaign.

However, ten Hag is sweating over the fitness of Martial just four days out from their Premier League opener against Brighton on Sunday.
