The transfer of Lionel Messi from Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain was not the only bomb in the European transfer market. Suddenly, as happened with the Argentine, Cristiano Ronaldo slammed the door at Juventus and returned to Manchester United, where he played much of the first decade of the 2000s and won several titles.
"I am proud to be back and to play in the Premier," said the Portuguese, who in his rerun scored two goals in the 4-1 win against Newcastle at Old Trafford.At the end of August, the return of CR7 to the Red Devils was made official and this Saturday he was already a starter.
At the end of the first half he scored the first goal and, after the rival draw, he put his team up again. At the end, goals from his compatriot, Bruno Fernandes, and Lingard would arrive to confirm the win, which left United as the only leader.
"My return to Old Trafford has been just a brief reminder why this stadium is known as the Theater of Dreams," Cristiano Ronaldo wrote on his Instagram account after the game. In the same post, the global crack added: “For me it has always been a magical place where you can achieve everything you set your mind to.
Together with my teammates and with the incredible support of the fans, we face this season with confidence and optimism that we can celebrate titles at the end. Above all, I am happy to help the team.
