On Friday August 27, Manchester United made the official announcement of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to the club in the ongoing Premier League season. Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer to Manchester United after 12 years has taken the internet by a storm.
On September 1, after Cristiano Ronaldo’s comeback announcement, a claim started circulating on social media which was as follows:
“Queen Elizabeth orders 80 jerseys for the Royal Court, and has personally requested Manchester United to reserve the first jersey signed by the player.”
This claim was first posted by an online news platform, Sports Innovation Society. They posted this claim involving Queen Elizabeth and Cristiano Ronaldo on their official Twitter Account.
For your information, this claim is totally false. There has been no such official confirmation from any trusted source. The Sports Innovation Society also deleted their tweet after some time and issued public apology.
We could not confirm the veracity of the note from the Queen and CR7 so we decided to delete the tweet. Apologies
