Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly told Bruno Fernandes that Manchester United need to win the Premier League title this year.
And it's a message the returning Old Trafford hero wants passed on to his new team-mates by his Portuguese compatriot.
Ronaldo has signed for the Red Devils having previously shone in the Premier League with United.
The 36-year-old has been allowed to leave Portugal's squad during the international break and landed in Manchester on Thursday.
He is expected to train at Carrington for the first time on Wednesday once he completes a five-day quarantine period.
But Ronaldo already has success in mind with United having last lifted the Premier League trophy back in 2013.
The Sun claim he has spoken to Fernandes and told him to tell the other players that they need to win it this year.
They add that the current United squad have not stopped talking about Ronaldo since he signed from Juventus.
The Red Devils paid an initial £12.85 million plus £6.85m in add-ons to bring the former Real Madrid star back to the Premier League.

Ronaldo said: "I have a fantastic history with this amazing club. I was there at 18 years old and of course I’m so happy to be back home after 12 years. So I’m really glad and looking forward to start my first game.
“I think it’s the best decision that I have made it. It’s right on point in my opinion.
"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.”
