Romano posted a screenshot of Ronaldo replying to a fan account stating, “Sunday, the king plays.” It’s massive news for Manchester United as rumors were swirling all summer that the all-time top goalscorer wanted out of the club. He had been away from the team for most of the summer but will now return. The timing felt imminent as the season is just one week away from kicking off, giving the Red Devils little time to send the striker to a new destination.
In 2021-22, Ronaldo scored 18 goals and notched three assists in 30 appearances. He will look to continue adding to his career tally of 815 goals across all competitions.
