Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday participated in his first Manchester United practice session since returning to his old club following his $28 million transfer from the Italian side Juventus.

With challenges to come at home and abroad in the near future, including Saturday’s Premier League match against Newcastle and next Tuesday’s start of the Champions League at Young Boys, it is hoped the striker will be ready to assist United and begin to have an immediate impact in his second spell at the club.

Ronaldo was given permission to leave Portugal's national team camp early after picking up a suspension for yellow card accumulation that ruled him out of the nation’s qualifier against Azerbaijan.

Ronnie had to quarantine for five days upon his return to England. He finally met up with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and a number of his new Manchester United teammates at Carrington training ground as he gets set for his potential second debut on Saturday, Sept. 11 against Newcastle United.

He will now have four more days to get up to speed before United’s next Premier League outing, with Newcastle due to arrive at Old Trafford on Saturday. Ronaldo had completed preseason training with Juventus prior to his transfer in the days leading up to the Aug. 31 close.
