This is Ronaldo’s second stint with Manchester United after he left the club in 2009 for Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner won three Premier League titles and one Champions League during his last stint with the club.
He later went on to win four more Champions League titles with Madrid before joining Juventus in 2018.
On 27 August, Man United announced that they had reached an agreement to sign Ronaldo from Juventus.
Ronaldo is in prime form as he recently became the top international goalscorer in men’s football, scoring twice in Portugal’s win vs Republic of Ireland 2-1.
