Former One Direction star and singer-songwriter Niall Horan joined many social media users on Twitter last night after the English football club, Manchester United announced that they have agreed a deal with the Italian football club Juventus, which will see the 36-year-old star footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo, return to Old Trafford after 12 years.
“He’s back!! ‘It’s going to be so good to see him play in England again,” Horan wrote on Twitter, tagging Ronaldo’s official account on the microblogging platform.
