With the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo back to Manchester United already done, dusted, confirmed, and made official, all that is left is for the player to start training with his new teammates and then preparing to make his first appearance for them since making his last for the club back in 2009, the year when he sealed a then-world-record move from Old Trafford to Real Madrid.
The Portugal international superstar was part of his country’s camp and was also with his international teammates as they continued their World Cup Qualifying fixtures. He played a very important role for Portugal in their last Game against Northern Ireland as he scored two late goals to hand his side a 2-1 victory despite first going 1-0 down through a first-half goal by their opponents.
After his second goal against Ireland, Ronaldo celebrated by taking off his shirt and was eventually shown a yellow card, one that means he is suspended and will not play in Portugal’s next game. He has since been allowed to leave the camp and travel to England where he will be expected to self-isolate before resuming training with his new teammates at Manchester United.
The Red Devils will play their next league game next weekend against Newcastle United at Old Trafford and it is expected that Ronaldo is fit enough and ready to feature against the Tyneside outfit, meaning that he could be set to make his second Manchester United debut next weekend when the Premier League returns.
