Man United fans react to Ronaldo’s decision to join Juventus

Manchester United fans still hold very strong feelings towards Cristiano Ronaldo, which often draws mockery from rival supporters.

The fact remains that he is up there with their greatest players of the modern era, the key man in their most recent trophy-laden period and their football has not been attractive or flowing since his departure.

That goes some way to explaining the strength of feeling, as well as the fact that there has always been the lingering possibility that Ronaldo would make a sensational return to Old Trafford at the end of his playing days.


That looks extremely unlikely to be the case now, as Italian champions Juventus – against whom Ronaldo scored a staggering overhead kick in the Champions League quarter-finals last season – have snapped up the Portugal captain.
