Cristiano Ronaldo: Set to face Man United for the first time since moving to Rea

The two world-renowned clubs are getting ready to face off in the last 16 of Europe, with the first leg at the Bernabeu on 13th February before a second meeting in England on 5th March.

Ronaldo will as a result face United for the first time since his record-breaking £80million transfer to Spain in the summer of 2009.

And the Portuguese superstar said in The Sun: "On the day of the draw, I was out training and I had this strong feeling that we were going to get Manchester United.

"And when the draw was made, I was very happy. It's a tough match, of course. Madrid and United are the two biggest clubs in the world and it's a real 50-50. It could go either way.

"But, for me, it will be a pleasure, a real pleasure. Of course, I know there will be a lot of attention on me but for me there is no pressure, no pressure at all.

"It is only a game, just a football match against my old club. I'm not going to war, I'm going home and I am really looking forward to it."

Ronaldo, who scored an own goal in Real's 1-0 La Liga defeat by Granada on Saturday night, added: "Manchester was my home and still is in my heart.

"I love it. Because when people treat you very well, you never forget that. And I will never forget United, the people who work there and the supporters.

"So I am so happy to be going back to Manchester.

"I will go and see my old house and see my Manchester friends. They're a kind of a family to me there and it will be great. It will be fun."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
