Cristiano Ronaldo Drops Strongest Hint He Will Start Against Brighton on Sunday

  • Ronaldo strongly hinted at making the squad for United’s opener against Brighton
  • The 37-year old is back with United after failing to find a club in a harrowing transfer window
  • He had earlier expressed his desire to leave the club to preferably play for one in the Champions League

Cristiano Ronaldo has given the strongest hint that he will feature for Manchester United against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, August 7.

United begin their 2022/23 campaign at Old Trafford where they take on an unpredictable Brighton with Ten Hag eyeing all three points in his first league game in charge of the club.

Ahead of the game, one question that has been lingering on fans minds is whether Ronaldo will feature, especially after he dropped a transfer bombshell on the club a few weeks ago.

As reported earlier, Manchester United will be without Anthony Martial, who suffered a hamstring injury setback and will be on the sidelines for a few days.

The in-form Martial’s absence opens the door for Ronaldo to be selected by Ten Hag for the league game against Brighton, although the 37-year old has only played 45 minutes of football in preseason.
