The 36-year-old has a strong bond with United and enjoyed great success during his first stint at the club from 2003 to 2009.
During that time, Ronaldo won the Champions League, three Premier League titles, the FA Cup and two League Cups.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently stated that he thinks Ronaldo can continue to play until he is 40 years old.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he was still playing at 40, not at all because of the way he takes care of himself.
“That’s the key to it — and of course some genes.” There must also be genes, some DNA in there.

“He has put every ounce of energy and effort into becoming the player he is and has been, so he deserves every little credit he gets for his physical condition.
“What’s even more impressive is that if you’ve accomplished as much as he has, he’s still so hungry. His mentality is still absolutely perfect and that is a desire from within that he will keep going until his head says “no, I’ve given everything now”.
“Hopefully it will last a few more years. Linford Christie (who won the Olympic 100m in 1992 at the age of 32) was also quite old when he won gold, so age is never an issue.”
