Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has arrived in the UK, just days after completing his transfer from Juventus to Manchester United.
And United said in a statement that Ronaldo landed at Manchester Airport on Friday, the same night that it was announced that he had returned the iconic No. 7 shirt, which he wore during his first spell at Old Trafford.
The statement added: “He was greeted on his arrival in a private lounge by Darren Fletcher, his former team-mate and technical director for Manchester United.”
Ronaldo dominated the headlines all week, and not only because of his return to United, the 36-year-old broke the international goal-scoring record last Wednesday, after leading Portugal to a 2-1 victory over Ireland in the World Cup qualifiers in Qatar, by scoring two goals. .
Ronaldo had played for Manchester United between 2003 and 2009, before moving to Real Madrid for 94 million euros, and it was the most expensive transfer of a player at that time in the history of football.
The Don is expected to play his first match with Manchester, after the international break, that is, on the 11th of this September, when the “Red Devils” face Newcastle in the fourth round of the English Premier League.
