Ronaldo's transfer from Juve to Man Utd Friday dominated the news headlines, and various platforms of social media

Portuguese sensation Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the world's greatest footballers and wherever he goes and whichever club he plays for, he leaves a significant impact not only on the field but also off it.

It was therefore no surprise that Ronaldo's transfer from Juventus to Manchester United Friday dominated the news headlines, and various platforms of social media.

So much so that United's official website reportedly crashed after millions of Red Devil fans across the world visited the page for the latest on his transfer.

Not only that, the shockwaves could be felt in the financial world as well as United's stock was up by 8% after his move to Old Trafford was confirmed; the English club adding around $250m in market cap to the stock.

This was not the first time though as Coca Cola felt the brunt of Ronaldo's rejection; the soft drink's shares falling right after the Portugal captain put aside a Cola bottle in a press conference during Uefa Euro 2020.

It won't take a rocket scientist to know that Ronaldo's United jersey will sell like hot cake in the upcoming days, while his impact can be seen on social media too.

In the two hours following the announcement of Ronaldo's resigning, United's Instagram followers rose from 43.1m to 44.3m.

In his first stint with United from 2003-09, Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 291 appearances.
