Ronaldo has now won the award SIX times, which is the most out of any Man Utd player in the competition.

He has overtaken Red Devils legend Wayne Rooney, who he was level with on five.

Ronaldo is also the oldest player to win the prestigious award.

He beat his own record that he set earlier on this season aged 36 at the time.

Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford hasn’t exactly gone to play.

Despite netting 24 times for United across Old Trafford, the team has ultimately fallen short in their pursuit for silverware.

United were knocked out of both domestic cups by West Ham and Middlesbrough respectively.

They were well off pace in the Premier League despite their second placed finish last term.

United have had to settle for either Europa League or Europa Conference League football in Erik ten Hag’s debut season.

West Ham could condemn the Red Devils to the Conference League if they seal a win against league leaders Manchester City in Mark Noble’s last home appearance for the club and beat Brighton.

And Atletico Madrid knocked United out of the Champions League.

The Red Devils are now nearing FIVE years without a trophy which happens to be one of their longest runs without silverware in the club’s history.
