Cristiano happy to be back 'home' as he eyes United (second) debut

As the Premier League resumes following the international break all eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo's homecoming party at Old Trafford on Saturday, with the Portuguese international set to resume his Manchester United career after 12 years away.

Update:

As the Premier League resumes following the international break all eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo's homecoming party at Old Trafford on Saturday, with the Portuguese international set to resume his Manchester United career after 12 years away.

The 36-year-old re-joined United from Juventus on a two-year deal last month and could make his 'second debut' as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side host Newcastle United.

While he may have to content himself with a place on the bench, it would surely surprise no one if United's number seven did not steal the limelight with a fairytale return.

Ronaldo joined United as teenager in 2003 and went on to win eight major trophies in six seasons under the watchful eyes of Alex Ferguson, scoring 118 goals along the way.

Portugal team mate Bruno Fernandes believes Ronaldo's winning mentality can rub off on a United squad that has fallen just short of silverware under Solskjaer.

"The enthusiasm will be red hot, everyone knows Cristiano is in the house," he said this week.
