Breaking: Man Utd re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo has completed a sensational return to the Premier League with Manchester United – not Manchester City – after a whirlwind 24 hours.

Ronaldo has told Juventus he wanted to leave before the transfer window shuts on Tuesday,

Premier League champions Manchester City were being heavily linked with the five-time world player of the year after missing out on England captain Harry Kane.

But after a non-stop afternoon of updates, City pulled out of the race.

That development came after United launched a sensational bid to re-sign their former player, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinting that Ronaldo “knows we are here”.

United have now completed the re-signing of the 36-year-old, handing him a two-year contract to bring him back to Old Trafford.

Man Utd statement in full

“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.”
