Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Manchester United’s Carrington training complex for the first time since rejoining the club in the summer transfer window from Juventus.

Ronaldo’s return to Carrington on Tuesday was the first time he has visited the club’s training ground since departing for Real Madrid in a then-world-record £80 million move 12 years ago.

Before being introduced to the players who aren’t on international duty, United’s new No. 7 spoke with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. After that, Ronaldo joined his new teammates for his first training session.

The 36-year-old might make his second United debut against Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday, or in their Champions League group-stage start against Young Boys on Tuesday.

A Manchester United statement stated, “It is anticipated the striker will be ready to assist the side and begin to have an instant impact in his second time at the club.”

Ronaldo, who joined Manchester United on a two-year deal from Juventus, arrived in Manchester last Thursday after being released from the Portugal squad early due to a suspension.
