The announcement came inadvertently through a social media post from fellow youngster Gabriel on his Instagram, who has also signed a contract with United.

In a Netflix documentary centred on his partner Georgina Rodriguez, Ronaldo previously spoke about his son’s natural abilities.

“Only time will tell. I will never pressure him. He will do what he wants.

“Also what I want the most for Cristianito and everyone else is that they’re happy and that they choose what they want. I will support in any way.”

On Instagram, Rodriguez also posted pictures with Ronaldo Jr. and their family, with the caption in Spanish translated to read: “Pursuing our dreams together. Mom loves you!”

Unsurprisingly, the youngster has followed in his father’s footsteps by selecting the famous No 7 shirt, and he is set to join join United’s U12 side – which also has Nemanja Matic’s son.

Ronaldo Jr. previously showcased his talents for the Juventus youth sides, and around that time his father said: “I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad. He says he is going to be better [than me], but I think it’s difficult. He is playing for Juventus and adapting really well, it has been easier for him than for me.”
