After a two-week hiatus while the first international break of the year took place, domestic football returns this weekend with a full programme of Premier League football. 

Liverpool kick-off the weekend’s showing, as they host Watford at Anfield in Saturday’s early kickoff.

There is also a west London derby on Saturday, with Brentford making the short trip to face Chelsea, while West Ham v Everton could prove to be the pick of Sunday’s matches.

Manchester United’s return to action sees them host Leicester City in the late kick off on Saturday, but manager Ralf Rangnick has been dealt a big blow in the build up to the game.

As per Football Insider, Red Devils star Cristiano Ronaldo is set to cut short his second stint with the club and leave at the end of the season.

Ronaldo failed to score on international duty with Portugal

The report suggests that United expect the Portuguese, who has scored 12 goals in 24 Premier League matches so far this term, to depart the club at the end of the season.

Ronaldo returned to United last summer, 12 years after initially departing the club in a then-world record £80 move to Real Madrid.

The 37-year-old signed a two-year deal when he returned to Old Trafford, with the option of a third year, however it now looks increasingly like that he will instead opt to leave the club after just 12 months.

Ronaldo made an instant impact on his return to United, scoring twice on his second debut against Newcastle United.

The five-time Ballon D’or winner has become something of a scapegoat for many of United’s poor performances of late, however, and it appears that he is increasingly unhappy with the situation at the club.
