United would buy Ronaldo for 25m euros on a two-year deal

Manchester United have agreed a deal to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, the Premier League club announced Friday, with the transfer subject to the agreement of personal terms, visa and a medical.

"United is delighted to confirm that the club has reached agreement with Juve for the transfer of Ronaldo, subject to agreement of personal terms, visa and medical," United said in a statement.

The Portugal forward is headed back to the club where he won eight major trophies from 2003-2009. 

Financial details were not disclosed but British and Italian media said United would buy Ronaldo for 25m euros on a two-year deal.

Ronaldo, signed by Juve in 2018 for 100m euros ($117.90m) from Real Madrid in the hope of leading them to an elusive Champions League title, will leave the club with 101 goals, two league crowns and a Coppa Italia to his name.

The 36-year old won the Ballon d'Or as the world's best player in 2008 at United alongside his team accolades, before sealing a then world record 80m pounds move to Madrid.

After telling Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri Thursday of his desire to leave Turin, widespread media reports claimed Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, had agreed personal terms with Premier League champions Manchester City.

But after City were said to have had a change of heart over the deal, rivals United got the transfer agreed.
