Ronaldo is believed to be in line to make his second debut for United against Newcastle on Saturday, September 10, days after they sealed the transfer of the Portuguese.

Sportbible now reports the Red Devils are set to mark the return of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner with a unique moment at the Theatre of Dreams.

The publication claims the presentation will include a solo walk by the 36-year-old to the centre of the circle before kick-off after his name is announced.

While this will not be the first time Man United have unveiled a new signing in such a manner, Cristiano's is expected to be a little unique.

Given he will be walking on familiar territory, his presentation is expected to be marked with a more jubilant crowd that will be more than glad to have him back.

However, supporters may not see much of him against the Magpies as he could be forced to settle for a place on the bench given he will have a one-day training with his teammates before the weekend's fixture.
