BazeNews confirmed that from a statement from release by Manchester United which reads:
“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.”
This is coming few weeks after a transfer agreement was mulled between Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester City. City were offered the chance to sign Ronaldo and considered a deal to sign him, as they were believed to be the player’s first choices.
However, while recognizing his qualities as a player, there was not a great deal of enthusiasm among the City board as Ronaldo is not the profile they would normally go for. The 36-year-old’s departure from Juventus was confirmed by Boss Max Allegri on Friday, as he told a press conference he was told by the player he had “no intention” of playing for the club again.
Yesterday, speaking with Cristiano, he told me that he has no intention to stay at Juventus and for this reason, he will not be called up tomorrow [against Empoli] and he didn’t train this morning,” Allegri said.
“I’m absolutely not disappointed, because Cristiano took his own decision. He was here for three years, he gave his contribution, he put himself at Juventus’ disposal, and now he’s leaving and life goes on.
