Manchester United confirm Cristiano Ronaldo return

Manchester United fans are enjoying quite the transfer window – yet are seemingly still not quite satisfied as they urge midfielder Bruno Fernandes to help get one last deal over the line.

The Old Trafford faithful have already seen long-term target and former Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho arrive shortly before ex- Real Madrid stalwart Raphael Varane also put pen to paper on a move to United, the club spending a combined £115m on two of European football’s most gifted players.

Remarkably, the arrivals of both have been rendered somewhat old news in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo’s stunning return to the club, eleven years after he upped sticks to Real Madrid.

In what was a whirlwind 24 hours for Ronaldo and both Manchester clubs, it appeared that the Portuguese star was originally heading for a controversial move to United’s fierce rivals and ‘noisy neighbours’ Manchester City, before a sudden change of heart diverted him back into the path of his former side.

Ronaldo enjoyed great success during his first stint at United, winning three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one Champions League but the stakes will be even higher for him to inspire his old side to their former glories.









The five-time Ballon D’or winner will be playing alongside a familiar face in Fernandes, the pair international teammates for Portugal as recently as this summer at Euro 2020.

Following United’s official announcement to confirm Ronaldo’s homecoming, Fernandes took to twitter to jokingly imply he had helped broker the deal given the pair’s good relationship at international level.







Bruno wrote, ‘Agent Bruno?, Welcome back home Cristiano’, sending fans wild as the Portuguese duo, both fan favourites at Old Trafford, interacted.

However, the tweet was taken a tad too literally by some sections of the United fanbase, as Fernandes were inundated with requests to sort a transfer between another one of his Portugal teammates in Ruben Neves.



Cristiano Ronaldo to Man Utd




United’s need for a midfielder in the traditional ‘number six’ role has been well documented, with the performances of both Fred and Scott McTominay leaving a lot to be desired.

Twitter quickly became littered with United fans barking their orders at both Fernandes and the club themselves to try and secure a deal for Neves before the window closes in just four days time.

One United supporter wrote: “The club handled the Ronaldo situation brilliantly and I couldn’t be happier that he’s back at #MUFC, but Neves is the missing link in our squad AND he’s available. We desperately need a DM… Your move Man Utd.”

His sentiments were echoed by another Red Devils fan, who claimed: ” Cristiano Ronaldo is Portuguese, Bruno Fernandes is Portuguese. Ruben Neves is also Portuguese? Are you thinking what I am thinking? He would want to play for Manchester United. He would want to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. He is a quality choice in defensive midfield.”
