Cristiano Ronaldo turned up for Manchester United training at his stylish best on Wednesday as he arrived in a £170,000 Lamborghini – giving the thumbs up to photographers as the world awaits his second debut for the Red Devils.
He completed his fairytale return to Old Trafford on transfer deadline day, joining from Juventus for around £12m, with the 36-year-old hoping to fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men to Premier League glory this season.
Ronaldo had arrived at Carrington this week to speak with his new boss and former team-mate and is now raring to go after returning from Portugal international duty as he prepares for a possible appearance against Newcastle at Old Trafford, just three days away on Saturday afternoon.
But fans salivating at the prospect of watching their hero on TV will be disappointed because it is a 3pm kick off, meaning they’ll be forced to listen out for updates with the game not on UK television.
Ronaldo arrived for his second day of training after being pictured back at the Carrington complex for the first time since his homecoming on Tuesday, when he was seen strutting his stuff and smiling alongside his new team-mates.
In the series of photos taken from Ronaldo’s first foray back on to the training pitch with United, he can be seen being put through his paces with some ball work, and also trying to keep himself cool with water in the scorching heat.
Ronaldo was introduced to the United players currently not away on international duty, including the likes of Juan Mata, Fred and compatriot Diogo Dalot.
Dalot looked notably star struck by his colleague during the session, having glanced at him with clear admiration and a wide smile on his face.
Ronaldo has joined United on a two-year deal, and arrived back in Manchester last Thursday, having been released early from Portugal’s squad after being hit with a suspension for a booking.
