Ronaldo is home

Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United celebrates scoring their first goal during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Newcastle United at Old Trafford on September 11, 2021.


Manchester United is delighted to confirm the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo on a two year
contract with the option to extend for a further year.


Cristiano, a five-time Ballon D’or winner, has so far won over 30 major trophies
during his career, including five UEFA Champions League titles, four FIFA Club World
Cups, seven league titles in England, Spain and Italy, and the UEFA European
Championship for his native Portugal. Cristiano is the first player to win leagues in
three different countries, he was also the highest goalscorer in last season’s Serie A
and won the golden boot at this year’s Euro championship. In his first spell for
Manchester United, he scored 118 goals in 292 games.
Cristiano Ronaldo said:
“Manchester United is a club that has always had a special place in my heart, and I
have been overwhelmed by all the messages I have received since the
announcement on Friday. I cannot wait to play at Old Trafford in front of a full
stadium and see all the fans again. I’m looking forward to joining up with the team
after the international games, and I hope we have a very successful season ahead.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:
“You run out of words to describe Cristiano. He is not only a marvellous player, but
also a great human being. To have the desire and the ability to play at the top level
for such a long period requires a very special person. I have no doubt that he will
continue to impress us all and his experience will be so vital for the younger players
in the squad. Ronaldo’s return demonstrates the unique appeal of this club and I am
absolutely delighted he is coming home to where it all started.”
