Manchester United fans have reiterated their desire to see Cristiano Ronaldo back at the club after his record-breaking performance for Portugal.

Portugal got off to a winning start as they began the defence of their European crown by defeating Hungary 3-0 in Budapest, with United star Bruno Fernandes playing a key role in the victory.

Ronaldo once again grabbed the headlines, however, as he netted two goals to finally put an end to a spirited Hungarian side.

Portugal are one of the favourites to win Euro 2020 but found things difficult in the Ferenc Puskas Stadium and it took until the 84th minute for them to break the deadlock through Raphael Guerreiro's deflected strike.

Ronaldo then took centre stage as he blasted in a penalty three minutes later and scored a second in added time, a brilliant goal in which he passed and moved his way into the box before rounding the goalkeeper and tapping home.

The two strikes saw Ronaldo break two records as he became the first player to score in five European Championships and also became the tournament's record scorer, with his 10th and 11th goals seeing him surpass Michel Platini.

United fans have understandably been left pining to see Ronaldo back at Old Trafford after he once again proved he can play at the highest level.

Do you want United back at Old Trafford this summer?

The 36-year-old finished this past season as the Serie A top goalscorer but his future at Juventus is up in the air as he enters the final year of his contract, leading to inevitable speculation over a potential United return.

However, the Manchester Evening News understands Ronaldo isn't a target and that a move is unlikely this summer.

That hasn't stopped some supporters from making it clear they want to see him back in United red, though, especially so he can link up with Fernandes at club level as well as for his country.

Ahead of the match, Ronaldo addressed the speculation surrounding his future but remained tight-lipped.

"I have been playing at the highest level for many years, this doesn’t faze me," he said.

"Maybe if I was 18 or 19 I might have had some sleepless nights, but I'm 36. Whatever comes will be for the best regardless of staying at Juve or being transferred.

“The crucial thing now is the Euros, it is my fifth Euros, but for me it’s like my first Euros. We want to play a good match with good thoughts from the first to the last match.”
