The big man has returned to town. Cristiano Ronaldo, not Wayne Rooney. He reportedly said this after returning to England in 2006 following an injury. Or should I say, CR7.
As he wore the famous Manchester United number 7 shirt, Manchester United’s legend returned to Old Trafford this weekend. During Newcastle United’s match against Manchester United, the social media frenzy will be interrupted. It’s been a perfect season for Manchester United, but now they have to prove they’re deserving of the Premier League title.

Ronaldo trained with his new United team-mates for the first time on Tuesday following his early release from the Portugal squad due to suspension, and we are all excited to see our no.7 back in action in Manchester.
Jadon Sancho sustained a knock while at England camp. He has since trained but also with Scott McTominay, Alex Telles, and other recent absentees.
Untied Review is accessible at Old Trafford and online before every home match. Cristiano Rojo’s comeback has been chronicled in detail in this special collector’s edition.
We take a look at the progress Ronaldo has made over the past 12 years since he departed Manchester United in 2009. And it’s also got a look back at the Reds who made their second appearances at Manchester United.

The Reds are the better team than the Magpies in history. In 171 previous meetings, the Reds have won 89, 39 games have been all-square, and 49 games have ended in defeat.
When Solskjaer was in charge, his side won both games. After a 4-1 triumph at Saint James’ Park in October 2020, we won a 3-1 victory at home in February of this year.
The Reds have won three of the past four league matches between these clubs and have won five of our six games against teams from the North East. Ronaldo scored a hat-trick for the Reds against Newcastle in 2008. He did it during United’s 6-0 victory at Old Trafford. On Saturday, let’s hope for more of the same.

It’s almost as though the Man Utd-Newcastle game is a distraction. Cristiano Ronaldo will make his first appearance in a Manchester United shirt in almost a decade. When it comes to the matchup, the hosts are anticipated to dominate after defeating Leeds Utd 5-1 in the season’s opening weekend. In light of Newcastle’s problems, and in particular their defensive frailties, the Magpies are anticipated to have a difficult day.
Man Utd will dominate the proceedings from the beginning. They eventually win the game. Ronaldo was expected to score his Old Trafford debut goal, regardless of whether he plays from the beginning or sits on the bench.
Tip: CRISTIANO RONALDO TO WIN ANYTIME
