GARETH BALE has tipped Cristiano Ronaldo to tear up the Premier League once again.

The Portugal superstar, 36, could make his debut - possibly off the bench - when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side face Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday.

And Bale, a former team-mate of Ronaldo at Real Madrid and had his own second spell at Tottenham where he scored 16 goals last season, reckons the goal machine will light up the Prem on his return.

Real ace Bale said: "I'm sure he will do well. He's proven it before in the Premier League so he understands the league.

"He has done everything there is in football. "His goal-scoring ability is matched by no one else so I'm sure he is going to come in, do well and score a lot of goals.

"I'm excited to see it like everyone else, I'm sure."


In that time Ronaldo racked up a staggering 551 club goals - 450 for Real and 101 for Juve.

He also netted 109 goals for Portugal and lifted both the Euro 2016 and Nations League 2019 trophies.

That all helped contribute to Ballon d'Or glory in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017 - to add to the 2008 gong he won while still at United.
