Cristiano Ronaldo will be in the starting line-up for Manchester United on Saturday against Newcastle United on his return to the Red Devils.
“Everyone is excited about Cristiano’s return,” manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said before the game. “He’s well trained. Everyone can see why he’s still going because he’s very careful and talented in everything he does. We hope that when he goes on the field we get five to 10% more.”
Ronaldo rejoined the club by transferring $ 28 million from Juventus at the end of the summer transfer window. The event marks his return to the club where he became a world star from 2003-2009.
The game will be broadcast on 10 am ET in two US states on USA Network (English) and Universo (Spanish). All NBCUniversal channels are operated fuboTV, which is available to users on a 7-day trial.

The club moved to Spanish giants Real Madrid and moved to Juventus years later.
Ronaldo left Old Trafford in 2009 as a competitive winger, who can easily beat opposing players. He also returns as a goal scorer, who also sets 20 goals plus the season at the age of 36. He showed up recently with establishing a history of global goals a male player with two goals in Portugal to beat the Republic of Ireland in a World Cup qualifier.
