Manchester United have agreed to sign Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The club announced this on its website on Friday.
“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.
United’s announcement came after a dramatic 24 hours in which Manchester City made contact with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes.
However, Ronaldo has opted to return to United where he spent six years and 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 – under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Initially, Ronaldo thought there was no chance of a deal with his former club, but United have decided to make it happen.
United said the deal for the 36-year-old five-time Ballon d’Or winner was subject to personal terms, visa and a medical.
