Cristiano Ronaldo has promised to write history at Old Trafford once again as he dedicated his return move to Manchester United to his former manager and mentor, Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Portuguese superstar declared he was back where he belonged after he completed his £19.8 million move from Juventus on Tuesday.
In an emotional Instagram post confirming his return, Ronaldo opened up on the ‘never-ending’ love for United.
He wrote, “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.
“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.”
“My first domestic League, my first Cup, my first call to the Portuguese national team, my first Champions League, my first Golden Boot and my first Ballon d’Or, they were all born from this special connection between me and the Red Devils,” added Ronaldo
“History has been written in the past and history will be written once again! You have my word!
“I’m back where I belong. Let’s make it happen once again… Sir Alex, this one is for you.”
Twelve years after leaving the club to Real Madrid, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is set to join the squad after the international break and could make his first start on September 11 when the Red Devils host Newcastle United.
