Newcastle fan holds up hilarious sign urging Cristiano Ronaldo to join club from Man Utd in the summer

A HOPEFUL Newcastle fan urged Cristiano Ronaldo to join them from Manchester United in a hilarious sign.

The Toon army are hoping for a big few transfer windows ahead following their £300million Saudi takeover.

And one supporter has aimed high by attempting to convince 36-year-old Ronaldo across to St James Park.

The wishful thinker held up a banner which read: "It's nearly 2022 NUFC is the club for you."

They even mocked up an image of the Portugal captain in a Newcastle jersey.

Not even Ronaldo could bail United out at Newcastle, with Edison Cavani's equaliser rescuing them a point.

Allan Saint-Maximin's stunning solo opener had put the hosts on track just seven minutes in and the forward ran the show from there on.

Cavani's leveller meant United were sparred defeat but Newcastle walked off the pitch feeling hard done by.

Sean Longstaff said: "On the overall balance of the game I thought we deserved three points.

"We created a lot of chances – the most we've created for a long time.

"So it's a disappointed dressing room but we know we can put in performances like that and that's a massive boost.

"The manager said we created a lot of chances and played well and it's a performance to be proud of.

"We need to do that every week now. We know if we perform like that we'll pick up points."
