Ronaldo named in Real Madrid squad to take on Man United in UEFA Super Cup

Date Posted,August 6, 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo is poised to make his return to Real Madrid action in the UEFA Super Cup this week.

Ronaldo has been included in the Real squad for the game against Manchester United after returning from the extended break he was granted this summer.

The Portuguese international played in the FIFA Confederations Cup and has only just returned from a family holiday.

However, he returned to training ahead of schedule, having initially being given until August 5 off.

Ronaldo heads to Skopje, Macedonia with Real to play in the annual clash between the Champions League and Europa League winners.

He has not played in any of the pre-season tour games in the United States, where Real faced off against United, drawing 1-1.

The 32-year-old is joined in the team by Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema – both of who have been linked with moves away from the Bernabeu this summer.
