Cristiano Ronaldo sets to rejoin Man utd

The move will be completed once he agrees personal terms and undertakes a medical.

A statement on their website reads: “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.”

Ronaldo looked set to join fierce rivals Man City on Friday morning but United have moved quickly and successfully hijacked the deal.

According to The Athletic’s  David Ornstein, United are paying Juventus €15m + €8m in add-ons.

While Ronaldo is now 36 and nearing the end of his career, that fee could prove to be a bargain.
