With the Portuguese returning for his second stint at Old Trafford after 12 years, Goal tells you how to catch CR7 in action from India…
Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in the Premier League in a sensational transfer.
Reportedly, Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes had offered the former Red Devils forward to Man City after the latter had missed out top target Harry Kane, but United pounced to bring the 36-year-old back to Old Trafford, where he starred between 2003 and 2009.
It is understood the deal which has been agreed is for an initial £13 million (€15m/$18m) with add-ons of up to £7m (€8m/$9m).

When will Cristiano Ronaldo make his second Man Utd debut?
The Portuguese star is expected to make his second bow for the Red Devils on Saturday, September 11, in a Premier League fixture against Newcastle at Old Trafford. The match kicks off at 7:30 pm Indian time.
There were reports that Ronaldo could instead be making his full debut on Tuesday, September 14 in the Champions League against Young Boys, due to the striker having to isolate in accordance with Covid-19 rules following international duty with Portugal.
It was suggested that due to the limited time that Ronaldo would be able to train with his new teammates ahead of Saturday’s game, Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could delay his full debut until the Champions League fixture.
But Manchester United have excited supporters with an update of Ronaldo having joined training on September 7, hinting that the forward could very well still be set to make an appearance this weekend.
While they did not confirm that Ronaldo will certainly make his debut against the Magpies, they strongly clued in as such.
“With challenges to come at home and abroad in the near future, including Saturday’s Premier League match against Newcastle and next Tuesday’s start of the Champions League at Young Boys, it is hoped the striker will be ready to assist the side and begin to have an immediate impact in his second spell at the club,” a statement from the Man Utd official website read.
“With the rest of our international contingent due to return to Carrington in the coming days, the countdown is beginning in earnest to Saturday’s 7:30 PM IST kick-off with the Magpies.”
