The Ronaldo effect hits Old Trafford in a big way
Cristiano Ronaldo’s no.7 shirt is a must-have for Manchester United fans once again, after it was officially announced he would wear the iconic shirt for a second time.
Fans have been queueing up outside the Old Trafford Megastore all day long, with the line snaking around the famous United Trinity statue on the forecourt. The mood is predictably ecstatic and, as you can see in the video below, many have been proud to show their United colours.
Ronaldo completed an electrifying transfer back to United in late August and, on Thursday evening, we were delighted to confirm he would wear that famous no.7 shirt once again.
Reacting to the news, Cristiano was quick to pay tribute to his new team-mate Edinson Cavani for giving up the shirt, in a touch of class that has also been widely praised by Reds supporters.
The prospect of Cristiano running out at a packed Old Trafford is enough to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, and the man himself admits our supporters have always been special to him.

“The Manchester United fans, they are special, 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, like I do it all the time, and try to do my best, help the team score goals, make assists, win games, and I hope to see them very, very soon.”
