Cristiano Ronaldo to return for Man Utd against Arsenal this weekend after bereavement leave following son's death

CRISTIANO RONALDO is poised to return to Manchester United's squad for this weekend's trip to Arsenal.

The superstar forward missed the game against Liverpool in midweek after being granted compassionate leave following the tragic death of his baby son.

But interim boss Ralf Rangnick has confirmed Ronaldo is available for the Premier League clash at the Emirates on Saturday.

Giving an injury update to reporters ahead of tomorrow's clash, Rangnick confirmed: "McTominay will be back and fit to play.

"He'll be available for the game tomorrow, the same with Varane and Ronaldo is available again – he's been training with us now"

On Monday Ronaldo confirmed that his newborn son had died after partner Georgina Rodriguez gave birth to twins.

He was granted leave by the club to be with his family, before returning to training on Wednesday.

Ronaldo then spoke of being "home sweet home" as he posted a picture with his family after partner Georgina returned home from the hospital.

And now he is set to make his match comeback less than a week after the heartbreaking news.

Manchester United and Liverpool fans came together as one at Anfield on Tuesday with an emotional minute's applause for Ronaldo following the tragedy.

Ronaldo's family thanked Liverpool fans for the classy gesture, with CR7's sister saying they "won't forget" what happened at Anfield.

That game looks like being the only one Ronaldo will miss after he returned from compassionate leave.

But while United fans will be boosted by having him back in the side, Paul Pogba has played his last game for Manchester United.

The club-record signing hobbled out of United’s 4-0 humiliation at Anfield on Tuesday night with a calf injury that will keep him out for a month.

Pogba's contract expires in May, with interim boss Ralf Rangnick revealing today: "Paul has had a scan. It is very unlikely he will play again this season.
