Ronaldo has been one of the star players for Solskjaer and has already come to their rescue several times. He scored a brace in the 2-2 Champions League draw with Atalanta last week, with both goals coming in added-time at the end of each half.
He has scored nine goals in 13 appearances across all competitions. However, at 36, fatigue could begin to set in.
How Ronaldo performs for the remainder of the season will be vital to United if they are to get out of their current funk, but the forward currently looks like he’s struggling for form.
Solskjaer, who is under pressure to turn around results, compared Ronaldo to basketball star Michael Jordan after that draw with Atalanta.
“Cristiano for us is like Michael Jordan for Chicago Bulls,” Solskjaer said of the veteran, who completed a blockbuster return to United in the summer.
