MANCHESTER UNITED players made precious memories for excited fans at the club foundation’s ‘Dream Day’. Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, and England star Harry Maguire were among the stars helping out at the event.
Marcus Rashford, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, David De Gea, and Lisandro Martinez all made appearances among the first team squad.

The centre-back said: “We know how much these days mean to our club; ever since I joined the club, it’s been clear to me how much we do in the community and how important that is.
“Putting smiles on fans’ faces and making them happy is what it’s all about.
“We’ve really missed days like this, so it’s great to have fans back.”
