List of 21 players available for the friendly game against Atlético Madrid as Ronaldo makes decision | - Sportz

Manchester United will be facing Atletico Madrid on Saturday in a pre-season friendly in Oslo (Norway). The coach Erik ten Hag has confirmed the Squad to play in the game.

Manchester United no. 7 Cristiano Ronaldo has been left out of the Man United team (squad) to play against Atletico Madrid in Oslo. But definitely, the wantout striker could play against Rayo Vallecano on the preceding sunday. The two matches would be played just hours apart. 


Erik Ten Hag has now released the least of the 21-man squad to feature against Atlético Madrid in Norway. It is expected that Ten Hag will use a strong XI which would be similar to the one he will use against Brighton in the premier league starting game.

After playing against Atlético Madrid, United will later face Rayo Vallecano a match to be played at Old Trafford just a day after that of Atlético. It would definitely be Ten Hag's first home game and many players would get chances to feature. Those who might not get the chance to play against Atlético Madrid could have their own chance then.


Raphael Varane could feature against Rayo Vallecano on sunday if he's fit, but right now he is absent from the 21-man squad traveling to Norway to play against Atlético Madrid. 

The defender have been sidelined with a minor injury earlier in the pre-season tour in which he missed two games. He featured against Wrexham in a behind closed doors game on Wednesday.

Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw, and Aaron Wan Bissaka are all among the first team players who will not be traveling to Norway. Some of them could play on sunday, but it is quiet necessary to bring to your notice that the club have confirmed that some of the players are not able to make the trip due to injury or illness.
