CRISTIANO RONALDO’S second Manchester United debut will NOT be shown on live TV after Sky Sports and BT Sport rejected the chance to show it.

The 36-year-old is poised to feature in the Red Devils’ clash against Newcastle on September 11 at Old Trafford following the international break.

But the Saturday 3pm kick-off at the Theatre of Dreams is unavailable for fans to see.

And according to the Daily Mail, both Sky and BT have refused to change their televised matches this month to enable them to show Ronaldo in action.

They state that the broadcasters wanted to avoid inconveniencing supporters with the switch, as there is no guarantee the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will start.

As it stands, those wishing to tune in to United‘s clash against the Magpies can follow the match on BBC Radio Five Live.

Ronaldo, who has joined on a two-year deal from Juventus, is gearing up for his first United outing in 12 years after he left to join Real Madrid in 2009.

And the Portugal international has vowed he has returned to help his beloved side win trophies.

He told the club’s website: “I moved from Juve now to Manchester, it’s a new chapter, I’m so happy and glad.

“And I want to carry on again, to make history, to try to help Manchester achieve great results, to win trophies and number one of them, to win great things.”

Ronaldo has also vowed that ex-team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can count on him to deliver in front of goal.

Commenting on whether he has spoken to the Norwegian gaffer, he remarked: “Well, we had a chat.

“But of course I’m going to have time to speak with him face to face, to know what he expects.

“As you know, I played with him for two or three years at Manchester United so I have a good relationship with him but now with a different role, I’m a player and he’s a coach.

“But it doesn’t matter, my relationship with him is great and as I say before, I’m there in Manchester to help the team achieve his results and the coach can count on me for whatever he wants. So I’m available for everything.”
