- Cristiano Ronaldo debuts for Manchester United on Saturday.
- The winger has been one of the best players in the sport for a decade.
- He has +300 odds to lead the Premier League in goals scored.
MANCHESTER, U.K. - Cristiano Ronaldo is set to make his return to Manchester United as they take on Newcastle United on Saturday morning.
Ronaldo, at times arguably the best player in the world, returns to Manchester United after a dominating stint at Real Madrid in Spain and a solid few years with Juventus in Italy.
Even with a late start, the Portuguese international is tipped to be one of the top goalscorers in the Premier League in 2021 by the online sportsbooks.

- Romelu Lukaku +300
- Mohamed Salah +500
- Harry Kane +600
- Bruno Fernandes +1400
- Dominic Calvert-Lewin +1600
- Son-Heung Min +1600
Ronaldo’s seasonal goal tallies in Italy and Spain would easily have taken the golden boot in the Premier League, and if he plays up to his own level in England, he’ll likely win it here as well.
He’s a huge favorite to pick up a goal against Newcastle United, a team that has struggled in the Premier League.
