MANCHESTER UNITED superstar Cristiano Ronaldo received a touching message from Brazil legend Pele after his return to Old Trafford.
Ronaldo sealed a blockbuster comeback at United on transfer deadline day following a £21million move from Juventus and looks set to make his debut against Newcastle on September 11.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner's homecoming has caught the attention of the entire world and thus football great Pele couldn't help but reaching out to his fellow GOAT especially after reading his message to Red Devils fans.
Ronaldo posted on Instagram: "Everyone who knows me, knows about my never ending love for Manchester United.
"The years I spent in this club where [sic] absolutely amazing and the path we’ve made together is written in gold letters in the history of this great and amazing institution.
"I can’t even start to explain my feelings right now, as I see my return to Old Trafford announced worldwide.
"It’s like a dream come true, after all the times that I went back to play against Man United, and even as an opponent, to have always felt such love and respect from the supporters in the stands. This is absolutely 100% the stuff that dreams are made of!
"My first domestic League, my first Cup, my first call to the Portuguese National team, my first Champions League, my first Golden Boot and my first Ballon d’Or, they were all born from this special connection between me and the Red Devils.
"History has been written in the past and history will be written once again! You have my word!
"I’m right here! I’m back where I belong! Let’s make it happen once again!
"PS – Sir Alex [Ferguson], this one is for you…"
Pele was very moved by Ronaldo's statement as he knows a lot about home, having spent almost his entire career in Brazil with Santos before rolling credits at New York Cosmos in 1977.
Although the Portugal international broke the 80-year-old's record for most goals in official matches back in March, the two men still share a strong friendship.
Pele said: "There is no better feeling than conquering the world and returning home. Always be happy, Cristiano."
