All eyes were on Cristiano Ronaldo on Monday afternoon when he arrived in Manchester with a police escort along with the rest of his teammates from Juventus.
The team of Massimiliano Allegri is in England to face the Manchester United of Jose Mourinho in the third installment of the group stages of the Champions League.
Ronaldo has mastered the pre-match preparation, given that the Portuguese star achieved his first success at United between 2003-09 and is ready to play the defining role for Italian visitors on Tuesday night.

Ronaldo and his teammates adapted to the arrival when the fans lined up at the start of arrivals to take a look at the big names of the team.
The police quickly took the team to the team bus and began the trip to Old Trafford, where Allegri and Ronaldo will speak at a press conference prior to the game later in the day.
It remains to be seen whether or not Ronaldo will face questions about the rape accusations surrounding him as he prepares to return to his former footprint.

The former United star was charged with rape by US model Kathryn Mayorga, who claims the incident occurred in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009 and that she was paid £ 288,000 to sign a confidentiality agreement.
Ronaldo vehemently denies the accusations against him and has rejected it as "false news".
Meanwhile, the Portuguese star will hope to continue his good form on Tuesday, having scored in consecutive games for the first time since joining Juventus in a 100 million pounds offer from Real Madrid in the summer.
Juve and United are favorites to progress from their group of the Champions League, having started strongly.
A victory at Old Trafford would assure Juve, who is at the top of Group H with the maximum points from their two opening games, a place in the last 16.

But United is a different proposal than when they were fired after a 0-0 draw at home against Valencia.
A comeback victory over Newcastle and an impressive display in Chelsea makes Mourinho's team come back to life and enjoy the stern test that Allegri's team undoubtedly poses.
A victory at Old Trafford for United will be enough for them to overcome the Italian side, a motivation more than enough to boost the momentum of the group.
