Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer to Manchester United Imminent

Cristiano Ronaldo is coming home after Manchester United has confirmed they have reached an agreement to re-sign the Portuguese from Juventus.

United have agreed to pay Juventus a £12.8 million fee for the transfer of the 36-year-old, with the deal subject to personal terms, a visa and a medical exam.

Ronaldo spent six seasons at ‘Old Trafford’ from 2003 to 2009 scoring 118 goals in 292 games for the ‘Red Devils’ before he moved to Real Madrid.

“Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester,” said a United statement.

After a dramatic 24 hours, United announced that they are bringing back Ronaldo even though many believed that the player has already agreed on personal terms with city rival Manchester City.

However, Ronaldo chose to go back to the place where he reached the superstar status. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, Ronaldo won three Premier League titles, one Champions League, two League Cups and one FA Cup – as well as the Fifa Club World Cup and Community Shield.

Ronaldo was desperate to leave Torino but with not many teams being able to afford him, he wasn’t expecting to go back to United.

Manchester City has one of the richest ownership in football but somehow they missed the opportunity to sign another elite forward after they failed to bring in Harry Kane from Tottenham.

United’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has previously played with Ronaldo, acknowledged that the team will try their shot at Ronaldo after he said on a news conference that their former star “knows that we’re here”.

Solskjaer also added that the midfielder Bruno Fernandes has played a major role in convincing his Portugal teammate to come back to ‘Old Trafford’.

Ronaldo is the third major signing this summer for United after they reached deals with Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.
