Surprisingly, Manchester United announced the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the team with a post on social networks, where they welcome him.
Speculation indicated that Cristiano Ronaldo already had an agreement with Manchester City; Nevertheless; it was the Red Devils who managed to make the Portuguese return “home”.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola told a press conference earlier this Friday that the Portuguese star was “still very, very far” from joining the English club, despite reports from the Italian and British press.
In the statement, the English club indicates that ” Manchester United is pleased to confirm that the club has reached an agreement with Juventus for the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo, subject to the agreement of personal conditions, visa and medical examination.”
Cristiano Ronaldo played for Manchester United for six seasons, between 2003 and 2009. It was under the orders of Sir Alex Ferguson, with whom he won his first Champions League in 2008, a title that led him to get his first Ballon d’Or that same year.
As a Manchester United player, Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 games, before joining Real Madrid, where he remained until 2018.
The Portuguese played the last three seasons at Juventus. A stage marked by the failures of the Turin team in the Champions League, which was the main objective of the Bianconero team.
