Manchester United have confirmed that the club have reached agreement with Juventus, via their official website, for the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo, subject to agreement of personal terms, medical and visa.
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.
United reportedly submitted a €25m (£21.3m) bid to Juventus on Friday and have offered Ronaldo a two-year contract.
Manchester City were offered the chance to sign him and considered making a move but pulled out of negotiations early on Friday afternoon.
Juventus manager Max Allegri revealed on Friday he was told by the player he had “no intention” of playing for the club again.
He was in the final year of his Juventus contract worth around £500,000 per week. He left early and didn’t train with the team but rather said his goodbyes and departed before it commenced.
“Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester.”
