Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Old Trafford before the final whistle for Manchester United draw

Cristiano Ronaldo left the field just before the end of Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano after being substituted in the first half.

Ronaldo, 37, is back against the Spanish side after United missed out on a tour of Thailand and Australia to deal with a family issue.

He started the match before being substituted after the first 45 minutes. He was filmed leaving Old Trafford before the final whistle, with United’s sources afterwards refusing to comment on whether his early exit had penalized manager Erik ten Hag.

Ronaldo is keen to leave the club this summer in a bid to find the Champions League football elsewhere. He has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, although sources have told ESPN that United have yet to receive a serious offer for the Portugal striker.

Sources told ESPN that Ten Hag encouraged team members who played against Atletico Madrid 24 hours ago to attend the friendly against Rayo.

Marcus Rashford, Anthony Marshall and Scott McTominay were among the players who watched from the managers box while others were in the hospitality boxes. They looked at Ronaldo’s replacement, Amad, who opened the scoring for United early in the second half before Alvaro Garcia leveled for the visitors shortly thereafter, as United finished their pre-season campaign with three wins, two draws and a six-game defeat.

“Overall, I’m happy, we made a good start,” said Ten Hag. “We are making good progress and are ready for the season, but I still know there is a lot of room for improvement and we have to improve.

“It’s also an ongoing process during the season, but next week it’s about a result as well. The reception was great. I felt the energy on the field, I felt the atmosphere they want to send to the team.

“There has to be cooperation between the fans and the team so that we get the right emotion, especially the right results.”
