However, rumors claim that Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez is pregnant, which might explain his absence.
The attacker has been in fine form for Manchester United this season, scoring 18 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions, while also adding three assists.
However, extensive conjecture continues to surround his future, with the Portuguese said to be eyeing a move away from Old Trafford at the end of the current season.
