The five-time Ballon d'Or winner made a sensational return to the Red Devils on a two-year deal after parting with Juventus last month.

Ronaldo walked out on the Italian League giants despite having about 10 months left on his deal to join his former club 12 years after initially leaving them for Real Madrid.
