Cristiano Ronaldo played just seven minutes in the victory over United as he made his return having missed Madrid's pre-season preparations as he was given an extended break after his exertions for Portugal in the Confederations Cup.

While the 21-year-old - who joined Los Blancos from Real Mallorca in 2015 - does not want to leave the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, he is prepared to if manager Zinedine Zidane cannot offer him assurances of more game time.
