The 17-year-old has even released his own song tribute to the former Real Madrid star titled Ronaldo [Sewey].

However, much to his disappointment, Ronaldo was not even on the bench for the Red Devils’ Carabao Cup fixture against Aston Villa.

After finding out the news, he tweeted: “I’m crying right now I flew all the way to Manchester to see Ronaldo and he is not playing.”

Before the game manager Erik ten Hag confirmed that Ronaldo would miss the game.

He did play on the weekend, but the result was not what he would have liked as Manchester United succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa.

Ronaldo’s Old Trafford future has been up in the air recently as he has been reportedly trying to get a move away from the club.

Most recently, in his biography, he revealed that he “could see himself” playing at Ligue 1 side PSG.
