Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently hailed the 36-year-old as “the world’s greatest ever” player, but many have been left wondering how he will fit into his star-studded side.
Already at his disposal, the Norwegian tactician has flexible options for his attack, with Mason Greenwood firing on all cylinders, Jadon Sancho now fully fit and Marcus Rashford nearing a return from injury.
Ironically, United have been looking for a long-term replacement for Edinson Cavani, 34, but have instead brought in Ronaldo, nearing his 37th birthday.
With that said, we take a look at three ways United could line up after Solskjaer completed an astonishing deal for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
This 4-3-3 formation line-up might look a bit heavy up top, but United's strongest starting 11 - especially when everyone is fit - looks like a terrifying prospect for opposition defenders.
Since hitting his 30s, Ronaldo is no longer the speedy winger he once was at United those 12 years ago and has instead matured into a lethal centre-forward.
On the face of it, the Portuguese phenomenon has, almost certainly, been signed to lead the line with Sancho and Rashford providing support from the flanks.
Should there be matches that require a little more caution, then a 4-2-3-1 would also work brilliantly with Ronaldo leading the line.
It would also Fernandes to play further up the pitch and closer to Ronaldo, allowing the pair to rekindle the relationship they have in the Portuguese national side.
As United improved last season, Solskjaer stopped using the back-three formation as it was clear his team were good enough to no longer have to sit back and defend.
Even more interestingly, especially following Ronaldo's arrival, is that it could see him play in a front two rather than being the lone striker.
While Sancho, Rashford, Cavani or Anthony Martial could all play there, how great would it be to see young Greenwood playing alongside him?
