Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo received a touching message from Brazil legend Pele after his return to Old Trafford.
SunSports reports that Ronaldo sealed a blockbuster £21million return to United on deadline day from Juventus and looks set to make his debut against Newcastle on September .
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s homecoming has caught the attention of the entire world and football great Pele couldn’t help reaching out to his fellow GOAT – especially after reading his message to Red Devils fans.
Pele was very moved by Ronaldo’s statement as he knows a lot about home, having spent almost his entire career in Brazil with Santos before rolling credits at New York Cosmos in 1977.
