And Hannibal, 19, who joined Old Trafford from Monaco in 2019, has praised Ronaldo’s impact on the youngsters at the club.

Speaking to Onze Mundial, he said: “I work closely with the person who has worked the hardest in the world of football: Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I can only learn from him. Cristiano is at the very highest level. You can feel his experience.

“If it’s necessary to score the winning goal, he’ll score it. He’s always there when you need him. Live it’s very impressive. To be in front of goal is incredible.

He continued, “He’s a great teammate. If you need advice he’s available as you can ask anyone at United for advice.

“I’ve seen him on TV since I was little, so I don’t really know how to talk to him! But being with him is something special.

“I’m training with one of the greatest players in football history, so I’m always learning. I watch everything he does. I just like him.”

“If you see him every day, you realize that for him there is only one thing: work. He does what is good for his body.

“One day it was sunny in Manchester. I watched him and saw that he was sunning himself shirtless. I said to him, ‘Why are you doing that?’ He replied: “Because it’s good, there are vitamins.”

“Since that day I always lie in the sun. I also look at his meals and try to have the same thing on my plate. He is a good example for the whole group.”

Hannibal has only played once for the Red Devils first team and is yet to feature this season.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo and United make their return this weekend when they take on Leicester at Old Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick’s side face a tough task to finish in the top four with just nine games left in the Premier League.

They are currently four points behind and have played a game more than Arsenal above them.
