Manchester United created headlines earlier in the summer when they announced that footballing superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo would return to Old Trafford after a gap of 12 years and the striker is now set to make his first FA Cup appearance for the Red Devils in 13 years.

Ronaldo has been brilliant on the field since his return, scoring 14 goals in 21 appearances across all competitions - though it should be noted that despite his heroics, United have struggled to impress.

With the FA Cup realistically looking like United's only chance of winning silverware this season, we take a look at the five-time Ballon d'Or award winners record in the competition.

Cristiano Ronaldo in the FA Cup for Manchester United

Games played: 26

Goals scored: 13

Assists: 9

Trophies won: 1

The striker who started out as a winger at United, played an influential role in the club winning the FA Cup in his debut season, scoring two goals and registering four assists in five appearances and was even more impressive in the following season - netting four goals and three assists in seven games.

The 2005/06 season was a disappointment for them as they were knocked out in the fifth round by Liverpool, though they bounced back in the 2006/07 season reaching the final with Ronaldo scoring three goals and providing one assist on route to the final.

The 36-year-old netted three and two goals in the next two seasons, though he failed to lift the trophy except when he won it in his debut season. The last goal that he scored in the FA Cup came in a 4-1 win against Derby County in February 2009.
