Ahead of kick-off, Ten Hag, about Ronaldo's match fitness, had admitted: "I cannot tell in this moment. He is definitely not on the level of our current squad, because he missed a lot of weeks. So he needs games and he needs a lot of training."

Ronaldo was hooked at half-time during the pre-season friendly.

And the 37-year-old was spotted leaving Old Trafford before the full-time whistle had even sounded on Sunday. United have since confirmed that Ronaldo won't face any additional sanctions for leaving the ground earlier.

United drew 1-1 with the Spanish side ahead of their opening clash with Brighton next weekend.
