Cristiano Ronaldo trains with Juventus ahead of Manchester United return - in pictures

Portuguese star braced for latest reunion with Old Trafford in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday

Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Old Trafford on Tuesday when Juventus visit Manchester United in the Uefa Champions League.
