Bruno Fernandes has cheekily claimed credit for Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Manchester United after it was announced the club had reached an agreement to bring the five-time Ballon d'Or winner back to Old Trafford.

Ronaldo spent six years at Old Trafford between 2003 and 2009 and returns to the club after a decade away from the Premier League, and having played for Real Madrid and Juventus.

And Fernandes led the messages on social media welcoming Ronaldo back to United and joked that he is responsible for the remarkable deal.

"‘Agent Bruno’?" Fernandes wrote on Twitter, shortly after news broke that Ronaldo would be headed to United.

"Welcome back home Cristiano," he added, with an emoji of a goat - to signify the forward's assumed status as one of the greatest players of all-time.

Ronaldo's former Real Madrid team-mate Raphael Varane posted two images of the pair in action together for Los Blancos, while fellow new signing Jadon Sancho said: "SCARY HOURS!"

Marcus Rashford, who was five when Ronaldo first joined the club, was visibly excited, and said: "Wow wow wow, he's home @Cristiano".

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to make his debut against Newcastle United on Saturday, September 11.
