Ronaldo is known as one of the best players in the history of football and his teammates enjoy playing with him.

Raphael Varane believes that the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo at

Manchester United

will help him to be a better player.

The Red Devils recruited a number of players in the summer transfer window, the most important of which were Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane. Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford after 12 years and Raphael Varane, who was a teammate of Ronaldo at Real Madrid for 7 years, has now teamed up with five Ballon d'Ors winner again.

The French defender praised Ronaldo and said that his presence in the Red Devils promoted himself and other players.

He told

"I think he is the best example in the world in terms of work ethic and winning mentality.

"Playing with this type of player, you improve every day. If he is still playing to such a high level at his age, it's because his work is amazing. I'm very happy to play with him."

Along with Ronaldo, Varane has the experience of teaming up with Sergio Ramos and is now trying to play a role similar to that of the former Real Madrid captain at Manchester United. He continued: "With Sergio Ramos, I had 10 years to get to know him, to get to know how he moves on the pitch and how I have to move to be complementary with him.

"I think Harry Maguire is a great player but we have to work hard to feel comfortable on the pitch. It's the same with every defender in the team. It's important to feel connected. We have to move together and motivate each other. Every day, we are learning and improving."
