It appears Cristiano Ronaldo cannot stop breaking records ever since returning to Manchester United this summer. It was just a few days ago that he became the all-time highest goalscorer in international football. And now, he has broken another record.

It is safe to say that there was a lot of excitement around his return to the Theatre of Dreams after having left over a decade ago. It had not appeared that the move was on the cards all summer, which is perhaps what made it even more surprising and enjoyable for the supporters.

There was some confusion about the shirt number he would wear though. But now that it has been confirmed that he has taken the iconic number 7 once again, perhaps it was expected that he would break some records.

As reported by The Sun, in just four hours after that announcement was made, Manchester United’s online store surpassed the highest day of sales on a single sports merchandise site ever outside of North America.

Is Ronaldo a great signing for Manchester United?

It goes without saying that Ronaldo is a very popular signing and the fans have wanted to see this return for years. But is he is the right fit in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team at this point of time?

At 36 years of age, it is safe to say that Ronaldo is not in his prime as a footballer anymore. But that does not mean that he is not a spectacular player still. In fact, he ended up topping the Serie A scoring charts just last season.

Yes, he has been away from the Premier League for over a decade and it will be interesting to see how he adjusts to English football this time around. But if he can find his feet at Old Trafford once again, we might be in for a treat.
