In what will certainly draw more than 100,000 fans at the University of Michigan’s stadium, Cristiano Ronaldo after all will suit up for Real Madrid when they take on Manchester United on August 2nd. It was previously announced that because of the month-long World Cup, the Portuguese striker would be left off the 20-man roster. Now, the club is saying that the 29-year-old will only miss Madrid’s first match against Inter Milan at Cal’s Memorial Stadium.
Madrid likely also will be with the World Cup golden boot winner in James Rodriguez, who recently signed a 6-year, $108 million deal with the club. Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric are also expected to play at The Big House, which is set to kickoff at 4 p.m. on FOX. Madrid also plays AS Roma in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl on July, 29th.
