Diogo Dalot has opened up on the text messages he exchanged with Cristiano Ronaldo before the Portuguese legend returned back to Manchester United this summer.

Ronaldo's future was in speculation for major part of the summer transfer window and he looked all set to join United's arch rivals Manchester City. But, the Red Devils came in late and announced the return of their legend back home.

Dalot, who also plays with Ronaldo in the Portuguese national football team, has been visibly delighted with the return of the talisman back to Old Trafford and he even texted the former Real Madrid man when the transfer was confirmed.

“It’s fantastic not just for me to have Cristiano here, but for everyone. He gives so much energy to everyone and he’s been fantastic,” Dalot told United’s club website.

“I texted him and congratulated him about coming back as soon as it was confirmed. He said how happy he was to be part of this club again.

“He wants to help the team and that’s what we want, and he’s been doing that already. I think fans can expect the same Cristiano as always.

“To be here winning what he has won and playing like he is playing, you can expect the best.

“We are here to help him, and he is here to help us as well, and I think everything combined we can do great things.”
