How does Cristiano Ronaldo usually start life at a new club?

  How does Cristiano Ronaldo usually start life at a new club? Ronaldo will be hoping to build up some form before United's tough run of fixtures kick in next month. But how does the Portugal captain usually start after signing for a new club?Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping the 36-year-old gets off to a flying start, with the Red Devils looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

Few people will be able to follow in Cristiano Ronaldo's footsteps.

Indeed, the pool of players billed as the 'Next Ronaldo' who have fallen by the wayside is plentiful, such is the brilliance of the Manchester United forward.

Still, the 36-year-old's son has certainly looked a talent. Again, it'd be entirely unfair to suggest Cristiano Ronaldo Jr could get anywhere near his father, but clips of him in youth action have been frequently shared online.

The narrative is there. The only thing with narratives, however, is that it allows us to believe we can predict the future from tales of the past.

Even if the younger Ronaldo does not reach the levels of his father, he's enjoyed the kind of footballing education many would envy.

In 2019, Business Insider suggested he had scored an impressive 58 times in 28 games for Juventus' youth teams and, like his father, has now joined up with United.

According to The Daily Star, he was seen linking up with the United academy - one of the most famous in the world - alongside Nemanja Matic's son. Wayne Rooney's son, Kai, is also in the system.

Taking to life in Manchester, Ronaldo Jr also appeared to copy Jesse Lingard's famous celebration, just days after the England international paid tribute to Ronaldo by doing the 'SIUUU' following his goal against Andorra at Wembley.

Of his son's potential as a footballer, Ronaldo told beIN Sports (via The Daily Mail in 2018):  "I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad. He says he is going to be better (than me), but I think it's difficult."

The idea of Ronaldo's son, alongside Rooney's, playing for Manchester United's youth teams is fun. Nothing more. It is interesting to watch what we can of their developments without taking it too seriously and jokingly laughing amongst friends about them carrying on the legacy.
