Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United is already breaking records

This summer has been all about Lionel Messi. The Argentine’s future has been uncertain ever since the final game of last season, with his contract expiring while he was leading Argentina to the Copa America, their first major title since 1993. He made headlines at the beginning of August when he sensationally left Barcelona, the club of his life, for Paris Saint-Germain on a free.

As ever, where Messi makes headlines a certain Cristiano Ronaldo will never be far away. And so it proved this week. The Portuguese – who had a pretty good summer himself, winning the Golden Boot at Euro 2020 as Portugal made it to the last 16 – has left Juventus for his old club Manchester United for a fee in the region of €30m. Cristiano is two years older than Messi, and isn’t as fearsome a prospect any longer. But it’s still made waves.

Quite a wave, in fact. United’s tweet, where they announced the signature of the Real Madrid legend, has become the most-liked post from a sports team in the history of Instagram. It was at 12.5m late on Saturday evening, a remarkable achievement. Cristiano brings undoubted media interest and intrigue; Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team will hope he can deliver goals, too.
