Cristiano Ronaldo will have the opportunity to rewrite history with Manchester United on Saturday (September 25) against Aston Villa. The Portuguese are already in fine form for the Red Devils and his absence was felt in the midlock defeat to West Ham United in the EFL Cup. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side struggled to score a goal, despite impressive activity and recording 27 shots.
Cristiano Ronaldo moved from Juventus to Old Trafford on the last day of the summer transfer window. The Portuguese immediately set a record for the most shirt sales in 24 hours, confirming his elite status in world football. The Manchester United star confirmed a wave of nostalgia among fans, again 12 years later. No. Donates the fictional shirt. He is now at the doorstep of another landmark.
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to return to the side after a mid-season break. If the Portuguese are able to find the back of the net against Aston Villa, he will become the first Manchester United player since James Hanson on 1 Man24 to score in his first four appearances for the club.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has already played his first four matches for the Red Devils in 2003. However, as he is contracted to the club again this summer, he will be given a second bite in the cherry.
Romelu Lukaku achieved the same record against Leicester City and had the opportunity to make his mark in Manchester United folklore. Unfortunately, on behalf of the club, Caspar Schmeichel played Splissport, stopping Belgium’s penalty kick in Lukaku’s fourth appearance.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s current form will make anyone bet against the record. It is also worth noting that the player he has scored the most goals against as a Manchester United player is Aston Villa.
Cristiano Ronaldo is in red-hot form for Manchester United this season
Cristiano Ronaldo has been running since joining Manchester United. The Portuguese made their second debut against Newcastle United at Old Trafford. He then scored his team’s lone goal in a 1-2 defeat to the Young Boys on Match Day 1 of the UEFA Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo was in the song again last weekend, helping Manchester United churn out a great comeback win against West Ham United. After a well-deserved rest, the Portuguese will run to go against The Lions. He will also have an eye on the record.
