The Portuguese superstar is expected to make his second Manchester United debut in the Premier League, when they take on Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday. Meanwhile, Kohli is in Manchester for India’s fifth and final Test match against England, which starts from September 10. So, fans were left drooling in anticipation when Lancashire Cricket took to Twitter to post a photo of Virat Kohli, asking everyone if they fancied “a joint training session” between the Indian cricket captain and Ronaldo at Old Trafford. United decided to cherish the moment, commenting, “One city, two GOATs”.

Kohli will be hoping to lead India to victory in the final Test, but the cloud of COVID-19 hangs over the fixture after a member of the India support staff tested positive on Thursday.
India currently lead 2-1 in the five-match series, and won the fourth fixture by 157 runs.
Rohit Sharma slammed his first overseas Test century, scoring 127 off 256 balls at The Oval, helping India take a lead in the series. Meanwhile, Kohli also contributed with a half-century during his team’s first innings.
