RELATED: Cristiano Ronaldo Shares Sweet Photos with His 4 Kids in Manchester: 'Blessed Family'

Last month, the athlete shared a gallery of family photos on Instagram enjoying sunny weather outside in Manchester, smiling while his four kids played on and around him.

His caption roughly translates to, "Who says there is no sun in Manchester?" and includes the hashtag "#blessedfamily."

In August, Manchester United announced the team reached a deal with Juventus that sees the athlete's return to the English team. Ronaldo first joined the Italian team in 2018 in a trade with Real Madrid.

"Today I depart from an amazing club, the biggest in Italy and surely one of the biggest in all of Europe. I gave my heart and soul for Juventus and I'll always love the city of Turin until my final days," Ronaldo shared on Instagram.

Ronaldo previously played with Manchester United for six years from 2003 to 2009. There, he won three league titles and one Champions League. The father of four then played for nine years for Real Madrid from 2009 to 2018.

Ronaldo's girlfriend also celebrated the big news and thanked Juventus, telling the Italian fans, "Thanks for all family."
