This weekend, the culmination of Erik Ten Hag’s first pre-season in charge, United sees two Spanish opponents face off in as many days.

Atletico fans have been protesting rumors suggesting the club are looking to sign Cristiano Ronaldo which adds another layer of spice. Still, the 37-year-old is unlikely to be involved despite returning to the club’s training base in Carrington.
