The Portuguese winger has traded Juventus for the Red Devils after more than a decade away from Old Trafford.

On Tuesday night, the club posted the first images of the player in his new kit.

The images carefully avoided the back of the shirt while the club waits for the Premier League to green light his return to the No7 jersey.

Edinson Cavani holds the number and league bosses are mulling over whether to allow an unprecedented swap, after the season has started.

Ronaldo, 36, informed Juventus of his desire to leave last week and a quickfire move to United was arranged, amid links with Manchester City.

A medical was completed in Lisbon before he agreed personal terms on a £19.7million transfer.

And the deal was officially announced on deadline day to round off a big summer of spending for the Red Devils.

Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane have also arrived to bolster Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s title hopes, along with back-up goalkeeper Tom Heaton.

Ronaldo said: “Everyone who knows me, knows about my never ending love for Manchester United.

“The years I spent in this club were absolutely amazing and the path we’ve made together is written in gold letters in the history of this great and amazing institution.

“I can’t even start to explain my feelings right now, as I see my return to Old Trafford announced worldwide.

“It’s like a dream come true, after all the times that I went back to play against Man United, and even as an opponent, to have always felt such love and respect from the supporters in the stands.”
