EPL: Ronaldo starts for Man United vs Newcastle..

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to receive a hero’s welcome at Old Trafford as he was named in the Manchester United starting line-up for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Newcastle.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who left United to join Real Madrid in 2009, returned to the club where he made his name as a global star last month from Juventus.

Since joining United Ronaldo broke the all-time international goalscoring record with his 110th goal for Portugal in a World Cup qualifier win against the Republic of Ireland.

Having being suspended for the subsequent game against Azerbaijan for removing his shirt in celebration, he jetted to England and has been training with his new team-mates for the past few days.

Ronaldo is joined by United’s other summer signings Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho in a star-studded team also including Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.

“He’s been having a good pre-season with Juventus, he’s played for the national team, he’s had a good week with us here,” Solskjaer said.

Ronaldo won three Premier League titles and the Champions League during six trophy-laden years with United, before going on to shine with Real and Juventus.
