Manchester United have completed that they have reached an agreement to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Serie A side, Juventus.
United have accepted to pay £12.8m for the 36-year-old player, with the contract subject to personal terms, a visa and a medical.
Ronaldo was able to score 118 goals in 292 games in his first spell at Old Trafford before moving to Real Madrid in 2009.
“Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester,” said a United statement.
United’s announcement came after a dramatic 24 hours. Neighbours Manchester City had looked to be one of the favourites to sign the forward.
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.
