Cristiano Ronaldo continues to generate all the buzz. Many Manchester United fans are yet to fully comprehend that they re-signed the Portuguese maestro who left them in the summer of 2009.
In a story that seemed destined to happen, the 36-year-old completed a stunning return to Old Trafford in a move that has received much fanfare.
Ronaldo has already trademarked the No.7 jersey as 'CR7' over the past decade and that followed suit once again as Cavani even willingly let go of that number to allow the Portuguese take hold of it.
While on international break, Ronaldo continued with what he knows how to do best, after bagging a brace that now saw him become the all-time international record scorer.
Manchester United fans are now eager to see him bring back that magic to club colours, with the international break coming to an end. However, they might have to wait for a bit with reports that Ronaldo might not be ready to make his debut just yet this coming weekend.
A report from The Sun details that Ronaldo will finally report at Carrington for the first time this week since he completed his move.
As per the covid-19 rules in the UK, the 36-year-old has had to quarantine for the past five days.
Manchester United host Newcastle at Old Trafford for their next league outing but the generala is that it may come too soon for Ronaldo to start.
He might now have to settle for a spot on the bench, something similar to how Ole Solskjaer treated Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho before giving them their full debuts.
At the moment, Ronaldo is relaxing with his family at a multi-million dollar mansion in Manchester before he will then join up with his new teammates on Wednesday.
With the Champions League set to resume next Tuesday, it is now believed that Ronaldo could be handed a start against Swedish outfit Young Boys in Bern.
All eyes will be on CR7 as he looks to start his account on a good note once again. By all standards, Manchester United looked like they improved their squad significantly in the transfer window with the addition of Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.
The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo simply topped it as something of an icing on the cake. It will be interesting to see how the Portuguese fits in the current Unite setup and whether or not he can inspire them to win a trophy, something they have not done for the past four seasons.
