However, according to reports from The Sun, fans will have to wait until mid-week before they see their favourite Portuguese star in action right from kick off.
As per reports – Cristiano Ronaldo will be on the bench against Newcastle United as he will only be joining training with his Manchester United teammates on Friday. He can expect to start against BSC Young Boys next Tuesday.
The Portugal National team captain has been in England for 3-4 days now, he will resume first team training on Friday, which is a bit too late. More reason why he would be starting next weekend’s game against Newcastle game from the bench.
It would be good to see Ronaldo warming up on the Touchline on Saturday afternoon, then walking on to the pitch in the second half would be memorable. A goal or two to mark his return to Old Trafford in a Man Utd Shirt will be sensational!!
