An insight into exactly when Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to take to the pitch for his first training session since linking back up with Manchester United has been forthcoming on Monday.
Ronaldo is back
The headline news not only at Old Trafford, but across the globe over the last week, has of course come in the form of Ronaldo’s Man United return.
On the back of three years on the books of Serie A heavyweights Juventus, CR7, ahead of the transfer deadline, made clear his desire to seek out pastures new.
In turn, when Bianconeri boss Max Allegri confirmed his star attacker’s imminent exit during a press conference last Friday, attentions quickly turned towards where exactly Ronaldo could end up next.

The initial front-runners to strike a deal came in the form of Premier League champions Manchester City, of course on the lookout for a replacement for the departed Sergio Aguero.
However, upon word coming to the fore that the Sky Blues had surprisingly opted to pull the plug on their Ronaldo swoop, it swiftly became clear where the 36-year-old was set to end up.
In turn, just hours later, the announcement which fans across the globe were awaiting was finally forthcoming.
CR7 opted to take his talents back to Old Trafford, for a 2nd spell with Manchester United:

Excitement, in turn, has since inevitably begun to spread throughout the Red Devils’ fanbase.
Ronaldo has been tipped to potentially make his 2nd United bow as early as this weekend, when Solskjaer and co. welcome Newcastle United to Old Trafford.
And, if the latest word stemming from the media on Monday is anything to go by, then such development is beginning to look more and more likely.
This comes with an insight into precisely when Ronaldo is primed to link up with his new teammates for his first training session having been forthcoming.
As per a report from the reliable Rob Dawson of ESPN, Wednesday will mark the big day.
After being granted an early release from international duty to suspension, CR7 flew into Manchester late last week.
In turn, after seeing out a 5-day quarantine, he will be eligible to take to Carrington on Wednesday, opening the door for the veteran’s 2nd United bow on Saturday afternoon.
