Cristiano Ronaldo has been spotted on Manchester United's training pitch for the first time.

The club shared a shot clip of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, who has returned to Old Trafford 12 years after leaving, in the club's black training gear with red trim.

And the 36-year-old, who has 30 major titles for club and country, is joined by Juan Mata as they make their way to the pitch.

The Portuguese forward's return was announced last month, having won honours at Real Madrid and Juventus.

While his last fixture for his country saw Ronaldo become the highest-scoring international player of all time, overtaking Iran's Ali Daei with 111 goals.

The forward was pictured earlier today in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's office, speaking with his former team-mate and now manager.

The club wrote: "Cristiano met with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, his former team-mate, in the manager's office before being introduced to the players who are currently hard at work in training.

"The spectacular signing from Juventus joined the session with his colleagues and wasted no time in getting acquainted with the group.
