Ronaldo spends first day at Carrington training ground

Cristiano Ronaldo has spent his first day back at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground.

This follows his £20m switch from Juventus on deadline day.

Ronaldo was granted permission to return to Manchester last Thursday.

He picked up a suspension while on international duty with Portugal.

The 36-year-old had to quarantine for five days upon his return to England.

But finally he met up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and a number of his new United team-mates on Tuesday.

The Portuguese can now look forward to making his second debut.

He has already taken part in his first training session back with the Red Devils.

Ronaldo will now have four more days to get up to speed before United’s next Premier League outing.

They will face with Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Ronaldo the new No. 7

Ronaldo handed in the No.7 shirt at Old Trafford when he initially left the club in 2009.

But he picked up the same number during his time with both Real Madrid and Juventus to keep up the promotion of his ‘CR7’ brand.

There was some speculation over whether he would have to wear a different number after re-signing for United, with Edinson Cavani having donned the No.7 after his arrival at the club on a free transfer in the summer of 2020.

However, Cavani has nobly agreed to pass the shirt back to Ronaldo and take up the No.21 instead.

This is the number he wear at international level for Uruguay.
