The Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo has recently signed for his former Premier League club Manchester United. The Portuguese have also been given the iconic number 7 shirt which he used to wear for this club. Premier League club Manchester United has swapped Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani’s number with their new signing Ronaldo.
After getting his 7 number shirt back Ronaldo appreciated the gestures of the 34-year-old Uruguayan for changing his numbers for the club legend. Ronaldo was at Lisbon for international duty after signing for Manchester United. He played the opening game of the World Cup qualifiers against Ireland which was played on Wednesday night. Ronaldo’s brace in the last minutes helps Portugal to win their opening game and also it helps him as he became the all-time leading top scorer in men’s international football with 111 goals.
The 5 times Ballon d’Or winner received a yellow card in the match against Ireland for shirt off. Because of this he also got a one-match suspension, but United saw this as an opportunity to bring Cristiano back in Manchester so that he can start his training early and can feature in their upcoming match against Newcastle United. The match will be played at Old Trafford on September 11, Saturday.
However even if the Portuguese forward arrives early in Manchester he will have to wait for some days to join the team as it is said that he will have to self-isolate for at least 5 days. Despite this self-isolation period, United fans and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Manchester United manager) believe their legend will make his second debut against Newcastle.
