Cristiano Ronaldo is in the building. This is not a drill.
Manchester United’s shock move for Cristiano Ronaldo last week could end up being the stuff of legend.
The Greatest of All Time is returning home, as he looks to further his individual legacy while propelling United to trophies once again.
Ronaldo has been given his number 7 jersey, while his two fantastic headers for Portugal in midweek certainly whets the appetite as we dream about what’s to come from the now 36-year-old.
In this modern age where Covid-19 is still rife, it always felt like Ronaldo would have to make his move to Manchester sooner rather than later if he wanted to feature against Newcastle next weekend.
Well, I’m pleased to report Ronaldo is here. With the official club website confirming the news late last night.
Ronaldo arrived via a private jet, coming into Manchester as a private terminal, greeted by Reds icon, Darren Fletcher, upon his arrival. You absolutely love to see it.

Honestly, it’s just so good to see Ronaldo back here in the North West. To me, it still feels surreal. I don’t think I’ll fully believe he’s home until he runs out on that Old Trafford turf once again.
He’d been away for twelve years and I was dead-set in my head that Ronaldo would never come back to Manchester as he held ambition to play in other leagues for other clubs. To see that he chose United as his next club was pretty special and I can’t lie, it made us Reds fans feel wanted.
No doubt Ronaldo will now have to undertake a period in quarantine, roughly for five days, before he can feature in training. You’re looking at potentially Wednesday or Thursday as his freedom day, meaning he’ll only have two, maybe three sessions under his belt before the Newcastle game.
Hopefully, that’s enough time for Ronaldo to get out there in some capacity.
