Cristiano Ronaldo makes a Sensational Manchester United return
Manchester United has revealed that they have reached an agreement with Juventus to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.
After missing out on top target Harry Kane, Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes offered the former Manchester United forward to Man City, but City backed out of the race on Friday.
United were able to make a proposal to bring the 36-year-old back to Old Trafford, where he had previously played between 2003 and 2009. The agreement is said to be for an initial £13 million (€15 million/$18 million) with up to £7 million (€8 million/$9 million) in add-ons.
In a statement on their club website, United said: “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.
“Cristiano, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, has so far won over 30 major trophies during his career, including five UEFA Champions League titles, four FIFA Club World Cups, seven league titles in England, Spain and Italy, and the European Championship for his native Portugal.
“In his first spell for Manchester United, he scored 118 goals in 292 games. Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester.”
City discussed the potential of a deal, but neither the player nor the club could agree on terms.
