It is a historic moment for Manchester United and fans around the world as Cristiano Ronaldo finally wears the jersey of the club again for the first time since 2009.
Cristiano Ronaldo rose to stardom with the help of Manchester United before moving to Real Madrid in 2009 and thereafter becomes arguably the best player in the world, having only Lionel Messi in his class.
His sensational move to Manchester United within the 2021 transfer window was unexpected as many analysts did not see it coming until it really happened.
In a statement by Ronaldo on Tuesday August 31, 2021, he expressed the special connections he has with the club and showed that he is back to continue making history with the club.
He said: “Everyone who knows me, knows about my never ending love for Manchester United.
“The years I spent in this club were 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 Utd, and even as an opponent, to have always felt such love and respect from the supporters in the stands.
“This is absolutely 100 per cent 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!
“I’m right here! I’m back where I belong! Let’s make it happen once again!
“PS – Sir Alex, this one is for you…”
