Cristiano Ronaldo has been named in Manchester United’s starting XI against Newcastle on Saturday – his first appearance for the club for 12 years.

Ronaldo, who re-signed for the Red Devils last month from Juventus, last appeared for the club on 27 May 2009 before joining Real Madrid for £80m.

The Portuguese, 36, scored 118 goals in 292 appearances in his first spell for Manchester United between 2003-09.

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo is wearing the number seven shirt.
