Man Utd fans dream of club ‘announcing Ronaldo’ after Dalot steals celebration

Manchester United fans have dreamt the club will "announce Cristiano Ronaldo" after his Portuguese countryman stole the Juventus ace's celebration.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are currently in Spain for a warm-weather training camp amid the Premier League's maiden winter break, with the Red Devils back in action against Chelsea on Monday, February 17.

The break has allowed United time to bed new signing Bruno Fernandes into the squad and has provided the 20-time English champions with time to regroup after winning just one of their last five matches.

The squad look to be enjoying themselves, with many of United's first-team stars posting pictures to social media from Marbella.

The club's official social media accounts have also been documenting United's time on the continent, with clips of training being posted to Twitter and Instagram.

One of those videos on Twitter shows Dalot wheeling away during training before landing Juventus star Ronaldo's famous 'Siii' celebration and embracing team mate Juan Mata.

And some wildly optimistic Red Devils fans took the impersonation as a sign that Ronaldo was set to return to Old Trafford after 11 years away.

A third, even more optimistic United fan wrote: "Announce Ronaldo."

While one United supporter used the tweet to plead with the 35 year old to leave Turin at the end of the season in favour of a glorious return to the Theatre of Dreams.
