Cristiano Ronaldo's homecoming at Manchester

Ronaldo established himself as a United legend during his first spell with the club between 2003 and 2009. Cristiano Ronaldo won the Champions League and three Premier League titles while also finding the net 118 times.

The Portuguese can now look forward to making his second debut, having already taken part in his first training session back with the Red Devils.

He will now have four more days to get up to speed before United's next Premier League outing, with Newcastle due to arrive at Old Trafford on Saturday.

What number will Ronaldo wear?

Ronaldo handed in the No.7 shirt at Old Trafford when he initially left the club in 2009 but picked up the same number during his time with Real Madrid and Juventus to promote his 'CR7' brand.

There was speculation over whether he would have to wear a different number after re-signing for United. Edinson Cavani had donned the No.7 after arriving at the club on a free transfer in the summer of 2020.

However, Cavani has nobly agreed to pass the shirt back to Ronaldo and take up No.21 instead, which he also wears at the international level for Uruguay.
