Cristiano Ronaldo aims to 'write history' at Manchester United after 'best decision' to return

 Cristiano Ronaldo has named his return to Manchester United as the "best decision" he could have made.

United completed the sensational signing in the final days of the summer transfer window as they stole in front of rivals Manchester City to recruit the 36-year-old from Juventus.

Ronaldo made a goal-scoring return to Old Trafford on Saturday as he bagged a brace to help United to a 4-1 win over Newcastle United.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner opened the scoring on the cusp of half-time as he turned in from four yards after Magpies goalkeeper Freddie Woodman spilt the ball into his path.

Javier Manquillo surprisingly pulled the visitors level but it wasn't long before Ronaldo reinstated the lead, this time with a fine finish through Woodman's legs.

Bruno Fernandes then thumped one in from distance and Jesse Lingard completed the scoring after he finished off a fine move instigated by Paul Pogba.

It was an excellent comeback in front of a raucous crowd for Ronaldo and after the match, he reflected on his decision to re-sign for United.

"It was the best decision I made," he told TeleFoot. "It was the right moment: I want to write history, help Manchester United have great results and win trophies."

There was an incredible atmosphere during the match as fans welcomed Ronaldo home and the Portuguese admitted that the reception took him by surprise.

“It is unbelievable," he told BBC Sport. "When I started the game I was so nervous, I swear.

"It is normally because I did not expect that they would sing my name all game. I was very nervous but maybe I didn’t show but I was. The reception is incredible but I am here to win games and help the team."
