It's fair to say that Cristiano Ronaldo's transfer from Juventus to Manchester United - announced on Friday - has got the whole world talking.

But what do United's current squad make of the Portuguese's homecoming?

Several were asked about the 36-year-old and the impact he could have on his return, both before and after the Reds' 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Sunday.

Scroll down to read the quotes, from Luke Shaw, David De Gea and Paul Pogba in full...

Luke Shaw: “I feel like it’s given the club a massive lift not just inside but also outside. Obviously it’s a big positive. He’s been one of the best players in the world for a number of years now. Everyone is excited for him to come in and not just learn off him but be able to play with him too.”
David De Gea: “It’s like a dream for all the Manchester United fans, for us. To have him back it is going to be great, you can feel in the atmosphere. Hopefully he can bring something special as well to make the team even better. It’s great to have him.”

Schmeichel leads praise for De Gea's double save


The Great Dane has reacted to David's epic second-half stops, which undoubtedly contributed to the 1-0 win.

Paul Pogba: “Everybody knows [what he brings]. He’s already a legend in this club and he’s coming back, so obviously it’s huge for us, for the club. He’s going to bring his experience, his quality and obviously when he comes the level goes up. We’re really pleased he’s coming but the most important today is the win so when he comes we keep this mentality of winning, and keep winning.”
