The 36-year-old completed his surprise move back to Old Trafford in the closing stages of the summer transfer window and is in line to make his debut against Newcastle United this Saturday.
Ronaldo finished as the top scorer in Serie A last season but both Gary Neville and Roy Keane have expressed their doubts over United’s chances of winning the league, despite the Portugal international’s return.
Rooney, however, believes Ronaldo will be a ‘very big player’ for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and feels United now have a squad capable of beating Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool in the race for the title.
‘I haven’t spoken to Cristiano since his return and I won’t be going to the game on Saturday,’ Rooney told The Mirror.
‘I’ve got a day off on Saturday and two of my sons have got their own games, so I’ll be taking them and being a taxi driver on Saturday.
