Ronaldo and Varane enjoyed a combined 19 years at Santiago Bernabeu, winning the lot - including four Champions League titles at the club. ​

Fans online loved the reaction they received ahead of representing Man United against Atletico Madrid. 

One wrote: "Once a Madridsta and Always a Madridsta!!"​

A second tweeted: "Still weird to see these two play for another team."​

A third added: "Beautiful scenes​," and another commented: "Real Madrid misses them both."

Ronaldo, meanwhile, started in his side's 4-2 victory over Leeds United last weekend, while Varane was a second-half substitute. 

The Portuguese superstar has been prolific in Europe this season, scoring six goals in five games during the group stage phase.
