Cristiano Ronaldo Jr officially joins the Manchester United academy

Manchester United have officially completed the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo Jr after he joined their academy. He has been playing for the youth team for a while now despite not being registered in the squad. The youngster is bound to be subjected to huge pressure due to his father’s legacy.

The 17-year-old had previously played for the youth team at Juventus and Real Madrid when his father Cristiano Ronaldo was plying his trade with them. Now he has emulated his father once again and has joined the Man United academy in an attempt to progress further in his playing career.

Georgina Rodriguez revealed the information on her Instagram handle (h/t Metro), where she shared the delightful information. She expressed her delight with a caption that read, “Pursuing our dreams together. Mom loves you.” The youngster was seen to pose alongside his family as he unveiled the famous number 7 shirt his father had worn in his legendary career.

Huge boots to fill

The teenager’s signing could be the start of something big if he could replicate what Cristiano Ronaldo has done for us. After all, his impact in world football is close to being unmatched, and huge efforts would be needed to emulate it. The starlet could do just that under the guidance of his illustrious father.

This moment is priceless for many supporters across the world as they believe that Ronaldo Jr can showcase what the 37-year-old has done for them. He would be trying to walk in his father’s footsteps wearing the iconic number 7 shirt. However, we should not add to the pressure that is on his head at such a young age.

After all, the Red Devils academy star knows very well what the Portuguese international has achieved in his career. The youngster could easily understand the challenge that he is set to face moving forward without outside input. That means we should try to support him by taking it slow and managing our expectations.

The Man United attacker is renowned for his hard work and the extent he would go to improve himself as a player. The academy prospect would need to do the same and pay heed to the advice he receives from his father. We would hope that he can be a success in the future just like Cristiano himself has done at Old Trafford. Only time will tell what the outcome would be as the youngster tries to make his case in football.
