Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Manchester United from Juventus in one of the many talks about transfer engagements this summer. He left the Old lady club after spending three years in Italy with Serie A.
But moving to Old Trafford have been widely welcomed by a lot of people as they believed he will replicate the same form in the EPL.
Already he’s stormed to life at Manchester United while playing under his legendary teammate Ole Gunner Solskjaer as the United boss.
Ronaldo has wasted no time in proving his qualities again in his return to Manchester as he scored twice alongside Portuguese ace Bruno Fernandes at the weekend.
His performance was very delighting to the fans who celebrated his pair of goals like evermore.
He scored in his first Champions League appearance for the Red Devils following his return to the club though it was not enough to inspire the win the Manchester club really desired.
They were beaten 2-1 by Young Boys no thanks to them finishing the game with 10 men owing to the sending off of defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
However, his goal offers a lot of positives which are undeniable especially as the ones he already scored for the side at the weekend.
The Juventus side would now have to make do without his service despite his goal-scoring exploits for the Serie A giants.
The Turin-based club may have kicked off their Champions League campaign on a resounding note but the absence of Ronaldo from the mix could be felt in the long run to the season.
Juventus defeated Malmo FF 0-3 away in the Champions League opener without their talismanic forward Ronaldo but what happens when the Allegri-led side face up with the big sides in the European games.
Juventus may have the need to bolster their attacking options in the next transfer window as the case may prove so early next year.
Goals from Brazil’s Alex Sandro, playmaker Paulo Dybala and goalscorer Alvaro Morata steered the Italian Giants to victory but it did not hide the fact that Ronaldo’s absence will be missed for sure.
On the other hand, the reality of seeing Ronaldo lining up along with top stars like Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani remains enticing.
While the young talent Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho and Scott Mc Tominay will benefit from his involvement in the United squad, overall, Manchester United have made a massive signing in bringing Cristiano back to his hallowed ground (Old Trafford).
And the profit it will bring is what the Portuguese record-breaking (against the Republic of Ireland) superstar has begun to show with his pair of goals against Newcastle United at the weekend.
Also, Ronaldo’s shirt sale adds up as a major income boost for Manchester United football club as a whole.
