The Red Devils will not have CR7 at their disposal for the upcoming game.

Cristiano Ronaldo will miss Manchester United’s match against Crystal Palace with a hip injury.

The Red Devils will come into the game on the back of their 4-0 defeat against Brighton on May 7. But they will have to face Palace without their top scorer.

According to the Athletic, Ronaldo has picked up a hip flexor problem ahead of United’s final game of the season.

Man United must push for a win at Selhurst Park to secure Europa League qualification for the next season.

The Red Devils’ closest rivals, West Ham, are only two points away from leapfrogging them in the league’s final matchday.

Another Man United absentee is Paul Pogba, who has suffered a calf injury. The former Juventus star will most likely leave the club when his contract expires this summer.

The arrival of Erik ten Hag at Man United has also intensified uncertainty over Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner expressed his excitement over the appointment of the Dutchman, but he could still leave the club if Ten Hag decides he doesn’t have a place in his United project.

The Brighton defeat could become Ronaldo’s last appearance for the Red Devils if he decides to leave Old Trafford this summer.
