Cristiano Ronaldo has re-signed for Manchester United from Juventus and made a sensational return to Old Trafford.
The Portuguese footballing legend made clear his intention to leave Juventus this week and was the subject of serious interest from the Red Devils’ immediate rivals Manchester City.
However, when all was said and done, he decided to return home to the club at which he first became a global superstar.
The club statement read: “Manchester United is delighted to confirm that the club has reached agreement with Juventus for the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo, subject to agreement of personal terms, visa and medical.”
“Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester.” The statement continued.
It’s reported that United will pay Juventus €15million with €8million in add-ons for Ronaldo, as he had just one year left of his contract.
The 36-year-old is reportedly set to earn £480,000 per week in what will be a two-year deal.
