Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane are back together again.
The two players won four Champions League titles at Real Madrid and are now reunited at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo’s move to United was officially confirmed earlier today, with the forward signing a two-year deal with the option of a third year.
Teammate Raphael Varane responded to Ronaldo’s first Instagram post as a United player with a message reading, ‘Let’s go legend!!!’.
Experience can make a real difference
Manchester United have fallen short too often when it matters under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The team has experienced four semi-final defeats and one final loss under Solskjaer, and dropped points in the Premier League at a crucial time last season.
Adding in proven winners of the calibre of Ronaldo and Varane will give United an edge required to manage through these season-defining moments.
Both players are still among the world’s best in their positions and they will have a hug role to play on and off the pitch.
Varane’s calming influence was apparent on his debut at Molineux as United kept a first clean sheet of the season.
Ronaldo is a proven goalscorer who will be looking to create a new history in his second spell at Old Trafford and end the club’s silverware drought since 2017.
He won’t be expected to do it alone, and having Varane here with him will be a huge help.
