Manchester United launched their new home kit on Friday and used images of Cristiano Ronaldo wearing it to promote it.
Ronaldo’s future at United is in doubt as the 37-year-old, who has 12 months left on his contract, has told the club he wants to leave.
He will sit out United’s first four pre-season friendlies – against Liverpool, Melbourne Victory, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa – after not traveling with his teammates on their summer tour of Thailand and Australia.
Ronaldo hasn’t turned up for training yet due to family reasons.
Despite doubts over Ronaldo staying at United, photos of the Portugal captain wearing United’s new adidas home shirt were posted on the club’s social media on Friday.
United’s official club store are also actively promoting new jerseys printed with ‘Ronaldo 7’, with the most expensive versions costing £115.
The club store is also selling ‘Fernandes 8’ shirts after midfielder Bruno Fernandes changed his squad number from No.18 to No.8.
