He was filmed slapping the phone from the boy’s hand as he left the pitch at Goodison Park – after a defeat to Everton.
It is alleged the forward’s conduct after the final whistle was improper and/or violent.
Responding to the charge today, Manchester United said: “We note the FA announcement in relation to Cristiano Ronaldo.
“We will be supporting the player in his response to the charge.”
