Cristiano Ronaldo says he is returning to a club “that has always had a special place in my heart” after Manchester United completed the Portuguese star’s arrival back at Old Trafford.
United made a stunning swoop for the 36-year-old last week, announcing that Ronaldo would be coming back to the club where he became a superstar before leaving in 2009 to make more history at Real Madrid.
Despite having a year remaining on his deal at Italian giants Juventus, the disgruntled Portuguese icon engineered a move away from Turin this summer and had initially been linked to the likes of Real, PSG, and – unthinkably for United fans – a potential link-up with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
In the end, it was the Old Trafford club which captured the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who is said to have completed his medical in Portugal on Monday.
After breaking the internet – including their own website – with their initial announcement last week, United confirmed the signing on Tuesday, including the news that CR7 would be joining on a two-year deal with the option of an extra year, which could mean he stays at United until he age of 39.
