Manchester United’s players have been reacting to the news that they are set to be joined at Old Trafford by Cristiano Ronaldo.
In a dramatic turn of events, Ronaldo is set to return to United more than 12 years after he left the club to join Spanish giants Real Madrid.
United, in a statement, have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Juventus to sign the Portugal international, subject to him passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
His impending switch to the club will cap off what could quite possibly be United’s greatest transfer window of all-time, with Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane having already joined the club this summer from Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid, respectively.
Unsurprisingly, the news of Ronaldo’s return to United, which comes just hours after he appeared set to join Manchester City, has sent the supporters absolutely crazy, with them now relishing the prospect of him sporting the famous red strip once again.
However, it is not just the fans that have been reacting to the news that United are re-signing one of their greatest players of all-time, with the current set of United players having been reacting.
Below, MEN Sport has taken a close look at what members of United’s squad have had to say about the Portugal international’s return to his former stomping ground.
As you can see from the messages above, United’s players, understandably, are elated at the fact that they will soon, all being well, be playing alongside Ronaldo.
The 36-year-old made 292 appearances during his first spell at the club and scored 118 goals.
