Ronaldo sends Man Utd fans the message they've been waiting for ahead of Prem opener

CRISTIANO RONALDO issued a ‘play me’ plea to Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag ahead of today’s Premier League opener.

The Red Devils entertain Brighton at Old Trafford in Ten Hag’s first competitive game in charge.

The Dutchman’s short reign at the Red Devils has so far been dominated by questions over Ronaldo’s future.

The Portuguese icon is desperate to leave the club to play in the Champions League.

But with the lack of offers coming in, the superstar and his new boss are in limbo.

It is unclear whether Ronaldo, 37, will be selected with his future up in the air.

And with very little action in pre-season – just 45 minutes last weekend against Rayo Vallecano – after being granted a leave of absence due to “family issues”, he may lack match sharpness.

But that hasn’t deterred the five-time Ballon d’Or winner from declaring that he is fit for that goal.

Ronaldo took to Instagram and shared a story of a picture of himself with the words ‘Ready’ emblazoned on it.

However, it is unclear whether Ten Hag will take the bait after a summer of uncertainty.


CR7 remains a United player, after failing to secure an exit in this transfer window.

Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Atlético Madrid have all missed opportunities to sign him.

While boyhood club Sporting Lisbon and even Turkish giants Galatasaray have been linked.

Recent reports suggested Ronaldo had “put the pressure” on new boss Erik ten Hag to throw him against the Seagulls.

And in a surprising twist, Ronaldo could end up leading the line on Sunday following an injury to Anthony Martial.

According to the Mirror, Ronnie has been “flying” in training this week after returning from holiday just 10 days ago.

Despite wanting to leave, the veteran continues to want to play as many minutes as possible ahead of the World Cup.

And Ronaldo has informed Ten Hag that he is ready to play tomorrow.

The new United manager has several options to replace Martial, with youngsters Anthony Elanga and Alejandro Garnacho available.

But Ronaldo’s recent training performances have got him thinking.

The Portuguese star’s quality was never in doubt, having scored 24 goals last season despite United’s dire performances.
