Anthony Martial gave Manchester United the lead in the first half after a great move involving United’s full-backs, Tyrell Malacia and Diogo Dalot. The Frenchman’s goal was his third in as many games on tour, and with Cristiano Ronaldo’s future uncertain, Martial will be hoping for a starting spot in the Premier League opener next month.

It wasn’t long before United doubled their lead against Patrick Vieira’s men with Marcus Rashford scoring his second goal of the tour. Bruno Fernandes picked the ball up and lofted it to Anthony Martial before a series of perfect passes led to Van de Beek teeing up Rashford for an easy goal.

This has impressed Manchester United to such an extent, that they are referring United syle of play as ‘Erik ten Ball’ with the Dutch manager winning all three of his pre-season matches comfortably. So here we take a look at fans’ reaction to Manchester United’s victory on Twitter:

Odds predict Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Manchester United amidst Atletico Madrid rumours

Manchester United gets a point

Cristiano Ronaldo expressed his intentions to leave Manchester United 3 weeks back, days after he was expected to show up for pre-season training at the Carrington. However, while his agent, Jorge Mendes has been working to find him a new club, the pursuits have borne no fruit for the Portuguese yet.

Ronaldo has already missed the first 2 pre-season games of Manchester United after being absent from their tour to Thailand and Australia. It seems the 37-year-old will likely miss the entire pre-season but end up staying at Old Trafford for the next season.

With Ronaldo failing to find a new club, the bookies in London have increased the odds of him staying at manchester United. The odds now stand at 10/11 for Ronaldo to stay with the Red Devils.
