The club released a statement on Thursday evening, indicating the striker would not play versus Chelsea on Saturday, according to Goal.

"Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of the Manchester United squad for this Saturday’s Premier League game against Chelsea. The rest of the squad is fully focused on preparing for that fixture."

Ronaldo's sister messages ten Hag

On an Instagram story, Ronaldo's sister Elma Aveiro said karma exists and God doesn't sleep, according to Mirror.

The message has been translated as follows:

"My great hero and love of my life, I will be with you until death do us part. Karma exists, and a lot of things I'm seeing, mainly disrespect. Don't do what you don't want me to do to you. God doesn't sleep."

Ronaldo handed in a transfer request this past summer but did not find a suitable club to sign him. Rumours have escalated that he plans on leaving Old Trafford in January.

The striker has since sent an apology to the club and his teammates.

Ronaldo dropped from first team squad

Earlier Sports Brief reported on Cristiano Ronaldo getting banished from the first team after his antics on Wednesday against Tottenham.

It has now been revealed that Ronaldo refused to come on against Spurs, and Erik ten Hag decided to stamp on the situation by forcing Ronaldo to train alone for the remainder of the week.

Ronaldo will also not be part of the squad to play Chelsea this weekend.
