Ronaldo deserves to be bracketed with United ‘s best, that is fact. United and the English football will surely miss Ronaldo and his palette of tricks. Ronaldo became the first ever Portuguese player for United when he joined from Sporting Clube on a $24m transfer in 2003 at the age of 18. At that time he was the most expensive teeneger in English football history. When he joined United he requested jersey number 28 , which he used to wear at Sporting Clube but he was given 7 shirt which had previously been worn by such United legends like George Best, Cantona and Beckham. He made his debut in the Premier League in the 4-0 victory over Bolton on August 16 2003. He scored his first goal for United with a free kick in a 3-0 win over Portsmouth on November 1. He became the first United Ballon dOr winner since George Best in 1968 and the first Premier League player to be named the FIFA World Player of the year.Have a look at Ronaldo’s 118 goals on the following link : https://youtu.be/wDzkQyTRqL4.
