Cristiano Ronaldo has been named in the starting line-up for Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Newcastle. Ronaldo will make his second debut for the club after moving back to Old Trafford in August. 

Ronaldo has gone straight into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting team, despite only linking up with his new team-mates earlier this week. 

Fellow summer signings Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane have also been given the nod from the off as United look to build on their unbeaten start to the new Premier League campaign. 

Sancho will flank Ronaldo, who leads the line, while Mason Greenwood has also been handed his fourth consecutive start after scoring in all of United’s opening three games.  

Harry Maguire will captain the side from centre-back alongside Varane, while Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka also appear in the backline. 

David de Gea keeps his place in goal following his strong start to the season.

Nemanja Matic has been given the role of protecting the back four, while Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba will be chief creators.

Man Utd announced the signing of Ronaldo late last month amid rapturous fanfare.

The 36-year-old had spent the last three seasons with Juventus, where he helped the side win two Serie A titles.

He also won the Serie A golden boot last season after notching 29 goals.

Ronaldo previously spent nine seasons with Real Madrid, where he won four Champions League trophies and two La Liga titles.

The superstar forward originally signed for United from Sporting Lisbon in 2003 and went on to become one of the most revered players in the club’s history. 

He racked up 118 goals in 292 games for Man Utd before departing in 2009 for Los Blancos. 

Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or in 2008 after inspiring United to Champions League and Premier League glory that year and won the trophy four more times in Madrid.
