When Is Cristiano Ronaldo's First Game For Manchester United?

Following his sensational move to Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo will play Premier League football for the first time in over a decade.

Since joining United as a fresh-faced 18-year-old, Ronaldo has since broken records left, right and centre - more recently smashing the men’s all-time international scoring record with his beloved Portugal.

And as he embarks on a second spell at Old Trafford after 12 trophy-laden years away at Real Madrid and Juventus, the 36-year-old will be gearing himself up for his second United debut, but when will it be?

Ronaldo Man Utd Debut: When will Ronaldo play his first game?

Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to make his debut in United’s fourth game of the season against Newcastle United this weekend after declaring himself “so happy to be back home” and insisting he was out “to win trophies” in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

In a recent interview, Solskjaer spoke about how he was hopeful that Ronaldo would play against Newcastle.

"I hope he will, we're working to get that done," said the Norwegian.

"Of course the players are excited, some have played with him in their national team.

"You see the fans - they're excited. That's what he does, he's a special player."
