Manchester United’s new forward Cristiano Ronaldo could have his first minutes at Old Trafford against Newcastle. This has been confirmed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, although he has not revealed how many in particular will be in his second debut as a red devil. The coach sees him prepared after competing with Juventus and showing a high level with Portugal during the national team break.
The Portuguese, who is already the top scorer in the history of national team football, has returned to what was his home after a period with certain shadows in Turin. He has closed his stage with the Coppa, but also with a gray image: Juventus entered the Champions League thanks to a carom. He scored 101 goals in 134 games as a bianconero.
The also former Real Madrid or Sporting CP raises the competitive ceiling of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sports project, where two important figures such as Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane have also arrived. After the runner-up in the Premier League and in the Europa League, the red devils are ready to make the final leap in the titles of this season 2021/22.
Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, the threats
Solskajaer’s team started the season with two wins and a draw that keep them in third place with the same points as West Ham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton, Tottenham being the only team to achieve full victories.
The great candidates for the title are Manchester United itself and also Manchester City, current champions; Chelsea, current champion of the Champions League; and Liverpool, who wants to regain the competitive level lost last season and go back to being that sharp and dangerous team of yesteryear.
