Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be the star of Manchester United in the 2022/23 season, despite the disappointing 2021/22 season at the team level.
The Portuguese legend returned to Manchester United in the summer of 2021 in a surprise transfer from Juventus in the final days of the window.
Although he has enjoyed an impressive season individually, Manchester United as a team has endured a dismal campaign.
With a new manager at Erik ten Hag and a string of new signings for 2022/23, everyone at Man Utd knows they must do much better in this upcoming campaign.
Cristiano’s future is currently in great doubt as he has submitted a transfer request, but he is still at Old Trafford as the transfer window approaches.
Ronaldo began playing off the bench during Manchester United’s first Premier League game of the season on August 7 against Brighton at Old Trafford.
It was introduced early in the second half with United trailing 2-0 and despite helping inspire a much-improved performance after the break, the Red Devils still lost 2-1.
The worst was to follow a week later, though. Man United traveled to Brentford anticipating their first win of the season. Instead, they were defeated 4-0, and Ronaldo was powerless to stop the slip. Full-time, Ronaldo walked off the field and ignored Ten Hag, in what was a sign of the growing tension between the duo.
He then left Ronaldo on the bench to score a home win over Liverpool, the kind of match he enjoyed playing in, raising questions about his future at Old Trafford once again.
Against Southampton away from home, Ronaldo was left on the bench again, but was brought in and struggled to make an impact.
He was hit early, with a knee problem, but recovered to play the rest of the match.
This page will be updated regularly to display Ronaldo’s statistics for individual Manchester United clubs throughout the season.

Ronaldo completed a surprise return to Manchester United after 12 years when he left Juventus in the closing days of the 2021 summer transfer window.

They have the worst points tally, the worst goal difference and the most defeats ever in the Premier League era. They were knocked out of the Champions League in the round of 16 and failed to qualify for the next edition.
They suffered a series of embarrassing defeats, losing 5-0 and 4-0 to Liverpool, 4-1 to Man City and relegating Watford, and also incurred heavy losses to Young Boys, Leicester and Middlesbrough.

With 18 goals in the Premier League, only Mohamed Salah and Hong Min Son scored more.
He scored a number of goals, with decisive late strikes in the Champions League against Villarreal and Atalanta (twice), while he scored a hat-trick against Norwich and Tottenham.
