Even though Cristiano Ronaldo is still in his home country, Portugal, Lisbon for a medical, the superstar’s presence was felt throughout Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Wolves on Sunday at Molineux.
The ‘Red Devils’ fans including the club’s goalkeeper David de Gea were in a jubilant mood as Ronaldo is set to make a return to Man United before the close of the transfer.
During the game against Wolves, Man United fans sang: “Viva Ronaldo, running down the wing with Portugal flags waved by the crowd and ‘Viva Ronaldo’ signs seen in the stadium.

“It’s like a dream to have him back, it will be great – it’s already great, you can feel it in the atmosphere,” Man United keeper David de Gea told Sky Sports.
“Hopefully he can bring something special to make the team even better.”
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is likely to make his return debut against Newcastle on Saturday, 11 September at Old Trafford.
“He’s a special boy, or man now, he was a boy when I played with him. Of course, we want to get that over the line,” said Man United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“Of course, the players are excited – some have played with him in their national team. You see the fans – they’re excited. That’s what he does, he’s a special player.”
“He is not signing to sit on the bench. He is going to make us a better team,” added Solskjaer.
