Solskjaer Confirms Ronaldo's Position For Man Utd

There has been some confusion as to where Cristiano Ronaldo will feature in the Manchester United attack this season, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed the superstar's role.

Ronaldo is set to return to Old Trafford after leaving Serie A giants Juventus following a three-year spell in Italy.

United already boast the likes of Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford in their attack, which has some confused as to where the Portuguese star will feature.

However, the Norwegian tactician says Ronaldo will play more of a striker role, as he has done with Juventus in the past.

"Cristiano, he's evolved as a player, he used to play wide right, wide left, up front, he's more of a centre forward for me at the moment, definitely," Solskjaer told reporters, according to the Evening Standard.

"But there will be games where we play with two up front, three up front. I want him in the box, I want him scoring goals.

"We've always been watching Cristiano, that one day he would move and we would be interested.

"We never thought that he was going to leave Juventus this season; when he did, we had to speak to him, of course."
