Manchester United has announced the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, 12 years after his first stint at the club.
Reports emerged earlier this week claiming the Portuguese has told Juventus he wanted to leave.
As of this morning, it appeared he would move to Manchester City, but by afternoon, things changed with Manchester City reportedly ending their interest in the 36-year-old.
According to Sky Sports, Juventus will reportedly receive €15m (£12.8m) plus €8m (£6.8m) in add-ons for Ronaldo, who is set to sign a two-year contract with United after personal terms are finalised.
Confirming the news, an official United statement read: “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.
“Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester.”
