Ronaldo recently shared an image of him putting his son, dressed in full United training gear, through his paces during the recent season break in Dubai.
In addition to Ronaldo Jr, Wayne Rooney’s son Kai also joined the United set up last year, scoring four goals in a Under-12 game against Liverpool in October.
Sons of a number of other United favourites have passed through the United academy over the years.
