Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of the Manchester United squad for the start of its pre-season tour.
The Red Devils travel to Bangkok, Thailand, on Friday, and the club have excused Ronaldo from joining the tour so he can deal with a “family issue”. It is not yet known when the Portuguese will rejoin the squad.
After playing Liverpool in Thailand on July 12, United head to Australia for games against Melbourne Victory, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa. They return to Manchester on July 25.
