Manchester United Players, Twitter React to Cristiano Ronaldo's Transfer, Return

Cristiano Ronaldo is on the move once again as Manchester United reached a transfer agreement with Juventus on Friday to acquire the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Ronaldo's move marks one of the most notable transfers in recent memory and it comes on the heels of a summer full of them, including Lionel Messi's move to PSG and Romelu Lukaku's return to Chelsea. Manchester United was where Ronaldo announced his arrival to the world stage in the Premier League, where he scored 118 goals in 292 appearances in all competitions from 2003 to 2009. He then moved to La Liga for a decade-long stint with Real Madrid in 2019-18. And now, after a goal-filled tenure with Juventus that came up short of achieving Champions League success, Ronaldo is heading home. 

It is unclear whether Ronaldo will be able to bring Manchester United back to the top of the Premier League, but his 2021 debut at Old Trafford will undoubtedly mark one of the biggest occasions on the soccer calendar. 

And it won't just be fans eagerly awaiting Ronaldo's arrival.
