Cristiano Ronaldo joins Man Utd training session
CRISTIANO RONALDO returned to Manchester United’s Carrington training base today.
This enabled him to spend some time familiarising himself with his old training base once again.
The pair chit-chatted, before Ronaldo was introduced to his new team-mates.
United shared a clip on TikTok of the Portuguese legend walking out onto the training pitches with Juan Mata.
CR7 could make his United return during Saturday’s Premier League clash with Newcastle at Old Trafford.
But SunSport revealed this morning that fans may have to wait until next Tuesday’s Champions League trip to Swiss side Young Boys to see Ronaldo from the start.
Ronaldo trained at Carrington today but he won’t be able to join in with the majority of his new team-mates until Friday when they return from international duty.
Saturday’s clash with Newcastle will not be televised, with fans scrambling to get tickets.
Some have been flogged online for as much as £2,500, as fans clamour to see Ronaldo’s first game back at the Theatre of Dreams.
Fitness shouldn’t be too much of an issue for the 36-year-old.
Ronaldo scored a record-breaking late double against the Republic of Ireland last week, having featured off the bench in Juventus’ Serie A opener earlier in August.
