Harry Maguire has hailed his new Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo as the 'greatest player' in the history of football.

Ronaldo, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time, have re-joined Man Utd 12 years after he left them for Real Madrid. The Portuguese superstar had spent six years at the Premier League side, and it was there where he first rose to superstardom.

With Ronaldo back at Man Utd, Maguire expects the five-time Ballon d'Or winner to have 'huge impact' on and off the pitch at the Old Trafford-outfit.

"Yeah, of course it’s amazing," the Man Utd captain told reporters [via Man Utd's official website]. "Obviously I’m away with England at the moment so my focus is on the game tomorrow but for him to sign back for the club… for me, [he’s] the greatest player to have played the game.

"It’s amazing to have him at the club and I’m sure he’s going to have a huge impact on and off the field and many players can look and learn and improve.

"Obviously he’s going to improve our team as well with his goalscoring record.

"No, it’s amazing to have him at the club and I’m looking forward to meeting him in a few days."
