Manchester United have confirmed the transfer of Portuguese forward, Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, twelve years after he left the Red Devils for Real Madrid.
Hours earlier the Portuguese forward was destined for Manchester City but in a dramatic turn of events, he rejoined his boyhood club.
The club statement 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.”
