Manchester United has stated that it has reached an agreement with Juventus to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 36-year-old five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s contract was contingent on personal terms, immigration requirements, and medical clearance.
According to reports, Juventus will receive €15 million (£12.8 million) plus €8 million (£6.8 million) in add-ons for Ronaldo, who is expected to sign a two-year contract with United once personal details are finalized.
“Manchester United is thrilled 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,” the club said in an official statement.
“Everyone at the club is looking forward to Cristiano returning to Manchester.”
Earlier in the day, Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, suggested a deal for the Portugal captain to return to Old Trafford was very close.
Manchester City was offered the option to sign Ronaldo and considered doing so, but ultimately decided against it.
Initially, Ronaldo believed there was no prospect of a reunion with United, but the Red Devils have decided to make it happen, while City have lost another striker option as Harry Kane moved to Tottenham.
