Cristiano Ronaldo is unlikely to line up against Manchester United in the Super Cup.
The Portuguese superstar scored twice last weekend as Real Madrid beat Juventus in the Champions League final.
It capped another incredible campaign for the 32-year-old, who bagged a staggering 42 goals in all competitions.
Real will face United in the European season curtain-raiser on August 8 but Ronaldo is set to miss out.
With Portugal in the Confederations Cup, Ronaldo is set for another busy summer.
After his country’s Euro 2016 win, he was given a month off ahead of the new season – although he was injured for a large chunk of that time.
And he is set to be afforded another extended period following this summer’s tournament.
The final in Russia is set for July 2, meaning Ronaldo will be back in pre-season training just days before the encounter with United.
He is also set to miss out on the showpiece friendly with Barcelona in Miami.
Portugal get their Confederations Cup campaign underway on June 18 against Mexico.
