Everyone who knows me, knows about my never ending love for Manchester United – Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United have released the first images of Cristiano Ronaldo back in the famous red shirt after he returned to the club where he made his name from Juventus.

The club confirmed his shocking move on Tuesday morning, August 31, with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner signing a £385,000-per-week, two-year contract at Old Trafford with an option to play until he’s 39 after leaving Juventus.

Ronaldo left United in 2009 in a world record £80m transfer to Real Madrid, where he won two LaLiga titles and four Champions League crowns in Spain.

Ronaldo is expected to make his much anticipated second Man Utd debut upon his return from international duty with Portugal. All being well, Ronaldo should play at home to Newcastle on Saturday 11 September.

Ronaldo released a statement on his Instagram account expressing his excitement about rejoining United from Serie A giants Juve.

Everyone who knows me, knows about my never ending love for Manchester United. The years I spent in this club where absolutely amazing and the path we’ve made together is written in gold letters in the history of this great and amazing institution.

I can’t even start to explain my feelings right now, as I see my return to Old Trafford announced worldwide. It’s like a dream come true, after all the times that I went back to play against Man. United, and even as an opponent, to have always felt such love and respect from the supporters in the stands. This is absolutely 100% the stuff that dreams are made of!

My first domestic League, my first Cup, my first call to the Portuguese National team, my first Champions League, my first Golden Boot and my first Ballon d’Or, they were all born from this special connection between me and the Red Devils. History has been written in the past and history will be written once again! You have my word!
