Cristiano Ronaldo has been pictured wearing Manchester United’s new kit.

The pictures were released with Ronaldo clinching his return to Old Trafford earlier on transfer deadline day.

This is an image Manchester United fans have dreamed of since 2009 and finally it has become a reality.

No number announced yet

United released a video clip displaying how Ronaldo’s name will look on the back of the new kit.

Yet it was very deliberate not to scan down and reveal the number Ronaldo will receive.

United are hoping to be able to give Ronaldo his iconic number 7 shirt, if permitted by the Premier League.

Edinson Cavani wore the shirt as recently as Sunday against Wolves and United would have to get special dispensation to be able to make the switch.

 

Cavani would most likely switch to number 21 vacated by Dan James, a number he has worn for Uruguay for the last 10 years.

After the international break Ronaldo hopes to make his debut. United have a home fixture against Newcastle on September 11.

Cristiano Ronaldo: One of the greatest ever

  1. Ronaldo signed for Manchester United in 2003

    United paid just £12 million to sign Ronaldo from Sporting. He went onto score 118 goals for United and won the Premier League title three times.

  2. A five times Champions League winner

    Ronaldo won the Champions League for Manchester United in 2008. He then went on to win the trophy a staggering four more times with Real Madrid.

  3. Goal hungry superstar

    Ronaldo once netted 42 goals in a season at United, a figure he smashed at Real Madrid. He once scored 61 goals in a single season for Real and 60 in another. He scored 101 goals in his last three years at Juventus alone.

  4. International star

    Ronaldo broke the all-time international goal scoring record in 2021 to move clear as the most prolific player ever for his country.

  5. Multiple time Ballon d’Or winner

    Ronaldo has now won the Ballon d’Or Award five times, finishing in second place on six occasions.
