Old Trafford will dress up to welcome back their prodigal son. Cristiano Ronaldo is back and will finally have his presentation at Manchester United in this Saturday's match against Newcastle for the Premier League. It will be his first game on his return and here we will tell you how he has done each time he has made his debut in a new team.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the presence of Cristiano for the game against Newcastle, although he did not say if he will start or start from the substitute bench. Either way, he will have minutes for this first game of his new stage at the Red Devils.
Cristiano Ronaldo trained at Manchester United when he was just 18 years old and did so on Matchday 1 of the 2003-04 Premier League in a 4-0 win over Bolton Wanderers. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson brought him onto the pitch in the 61st minute, replacing Nicky Butt.
He did not score in that game and his first goalscorer only came on matchday 11 in a 3-0 win over Portsmouth. After his great time at the Red Devils, his time at Real Madrid came. With the remembered number 9 shirt (number 7 was owned by Raúl), he made his debut in the 2009-10 season in a 3-2 victory against Deportivo La Coruña. That day, he scored a 2-1 penalty, while Raúl and Lass Diarra scored the other goals for the meringues.
Finally, we come to 2018 where, after a successful career at Real Madrid with three Champions League titles in a row and 450 goals scored, he moved to Turin. At Juventus, he arrived and quickly put the team on his shoulder. He made his debut against Chievo Verona in a 3-2 win on the opening day of Serie A and had to wait a few games to score. He did it on the fourth date against Sassuolo with a double.
