Cristiano Ronaldo’s homecoming to Manchester United is something that was celebrated not only by fans but also by the players. Ronaldo made his debut for Manchester United against Newcastle and the former Juventus striker scored a brace and sent a wave of joy amongst the fans. CR7 lead the team to win the game 4-1 however, despite this defeat the players of Newcastle could not resist themselves from asking for CR7’s shirt. After the final whistle, as many as three players asked Ronaldo for his shirt each time he had to turn down the request as someone else had already asked for his jersey.

However, it’s still not clear about who finally got CR7’s jersey but it wouldn’t be surprising if the former Juventus star wished to preserve his jersey.
