How Man Utd could line up against Leicester with Cristiano Ronaldo 'in squad' after failing to seal transfer exit | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED look set to have Cristiano Ronaldo as part of their squad against Leicester City tonight.
The Red Devils head to the Foxes looking for a third-consecutive Premier League victory.
The Portuguese star has been trying to secure a move from Old Trafford all summer – but a deadline day exit now looks increasingly unlikely after he was allegedly spotted earlier on the team bus travelling to the King Power.
Meanwhile, it looks unlikely that £85.5 million new boy Antony, who has arrived from Ajax, will feature.
This is due to Antony needing both a visa and a work permit having made the switch from Ajax.
David De Gea will continue in goal for Erik ten Hag’s side after bouncing back from his Brentford nightmare.
The Dutch boss is also unlikely to want to change a winning formula in defence.
That means Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia are nailed on to retain their places.
But it’s in midfield where things start getting exciting for United.
Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes have proved their worth so far and are likely to play.

Anthony Elanga is available and looks set to continue should Antony be unavailable, but Anthony Martial is still a doubt due to his Achilles problem.
But United have plenty of other options if they want to change things up.
With midweek fixtures coming thick and fast, Ten Hag could decide to shake things up entirely.
