Ronaldo has trained alongside his new teammates this week, and the Portuguese is expected to go straight into the starting XI on Saturday afternoon at center-forward.
United could take on Steve Bruce’s Magpies without six senior players. The likes of Alex Telles, Dean Henderson, Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford, and Phil Jones are all likely to be unavailable for the clash.
Another player who is facing a race against time to feature on the night is Jadon Sancho. The 21-year-old withdrew from the England squad after picking up a minor injury.
