Striker-star, Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Manchester United’s final game of the season with a hip flexor issue, The Athletic understands.
In a similar situation, Paul Pogba will also not feature ahead of a potential departure from the club.
Manchester United play Crystal Palace at 16.00 on Sunday, needing a win to guarantee they finish above West Ham in sixth, which would ensure the club qualifies for the Europa League.
Yesterday, incoming United manager Erik ten Hag said “I can’t wait to work with him” when asked about his plans for the forward next season.
While this is Ronaldo’s final club match of the season, Portugal begin their Nations League campaign against Iberian rivals Spain on June 2, before another match against Switzerland three days later.
Ronaldo is international football’s all-time leading goal scorer with 115 goals in 186 games.
