Cristiano Ronaldo set for brief Manchester United return next season

This is all Manchester United fans have ever wanted, but will 90 minutes or so be enough for them?

Ask a Manchester United fan what they want for Christmas and we reckon most of them would say the return of a certain Portuguese player.

No, we really don't mean Bebe or Nani, we mean Real Madrid's record breaker and goalscoring machine Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronnie has been linked with a move back to Old Trafford pretty much every transfer window over the past few seasons, and United fans keep holding their breath thinking they can snap him up.

However, it's never really been more than a rumour, but it's time to get excited United fans because guess what, Cristiano Ronaldo is returning to Old Trafford!

Oh my god...

Sadly, it's only for Wayne Rooney's testimonial game. A source close to Ronaldo told the Daily Star that: "Ronaldo is a busy man but there was no way he would miss something like this. It promises to be an all-star cast, but Ronaldo will be the biggest of the lot. He might even upstage Wayne himself."

Rooney is set to celebrate his 12th year as a Red Devils player next season and has been given a testimonial game next August, which has already sold out!

After David Beckham's all-star Unicef game, we reckon United fans won't be able to believe their luck at seeing Becks and Ronaldo both back at Old Trafford in less than a year.
