The five-time Ballon d'Or winner agreed to come back to where he developed into a world star and completed a £19.6 million move on Tuesday.
He's currently breaking records on international duty with Portugal but is expected to make his eagerly anticipated return when club football commences again.
United host Newcastle United at Old Trafford in a 3pm kick-off on 11 September and Ronaldo is set to play should he receive a visa in time.
On Saturday, United announced that the huge deal to bring Ronaldo back to the 13-time Premier League champions led to "unprecedented load" on their ticketing website such was the incredible demand.
The official allocation of tickets has sold out but resale sites have availability - albeit for ridiculously hiked prices.
Tickets on American site StubHub were going for up to £2,514 for seats in the lower-tier.
Those tickets now appear to have been snapped up but Live Football Tickets have been advertising more than 200 tickets for Ronaldo's homecoming.

Match tickets for Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United at Old Trafford against Newcastle on 11th September being sold for £2,500 each on ticket resale websites. [times]— Man Utd Stuff (@ManUtdStuff) September 2, 2021
The cheapest are £265, with the most expensive - which are located in the first tier of the Sir Alex Ferguson stand - costing £699.
Some tickets going for £350 are listed as being in the west stand lower and providing a "Ronaldo tunnel entrance view".
“We strongly discourage fans from purchasing tickets from unauthorised sources,” the club said.
“These tickets are often invalid, leaving fans out of pocket, disappointed and unable to see the game.”
Ronaldo's return is not being broadcasted live in the United Kingdom on BT Sport or Sky Sports due to the 3pm blackout.
The Portuguese superstar joined the club as a scrawny 18-year-old from Sporting in 2003 and spent six glorious years before leaving for Real Madrid in a world-record £80 million move.
Now he is looking forward to being welcomed back by the supporters that have continued to sing his name.
"The Manchester United fans, they are special," Ronaldo told the official Manchester United website.
"I know, I remember very well. I know they still sing my music, which has made me feel even more happy and my commitment is to give everything on the pitch like I did before.
"I hope to see them very, very soon."
