Cristiano Ronaldo is finally back at Manchester United’s training ground after completing a sensational return to the club from Juventus. The 36-year-old’s transfer was formally confirmed on deadline day and after being released early from international duty, he is back training at Carrington.
Ronaldo arrived in Manchester last week after becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in men’s international football but had to undergo a five-day quarantine before he could train with his new teammates.
With the return of Premier League football just days away, the club posted photos, as seen below, of the forward back at Carrington for the first time since he left the club 12 years ago.

There were suggestions that Ronaldo would have to move away from his iconic No7 shirt upon his return to the club but following Edinson Cavani’s switch to No21, the Portugal international was free to take the vacant digit.
Ronaldo could make his second debut for the club this weekend as Newcastle make the trip to Old Trafford. A victory would see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side take 10 points from the first 12 available.
