I cannot wait to play at Old Trafford in front of a full stadium and see all the fans again.
I’m looking forward to joining up with the team after the international games, and I hope we have a very successful season ahead.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who played with Ronaldo during his previous spell at United, said:
You run out of words to describe Cristiano. He is not only a marvellous player but also a great human being.
To have the desire and the ability to play at the top level for such a long period requires a very special person.
I have no doubt that he will continue to impress us all and his experience will be so vital for the younger players in the squad.
Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 games for United between 2003 and 2009, winning three Premier League titles, the Champions League, the FA Cup and two League Cups.
