He’s Coming Home: Ronaldo Finally Snubs Man City For Man United

Just when it seemed as though Cristiano Ronaldo was going to leave Juventus and join Manchester City, a dramatic turn of events now means that the 36-year-old is closing in on a return to former club Manchester United.

Twelve years after the Portuguese forward left Manchester United to join Real Madrid, and roughly 18 hours after he seemed set to become a Manchester City player, a return to Old Trafford is now on the cards for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

The journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that Manchester United have made an official bid for Cristiano Ronaldo, while Goal’s Juventus correspondent Romeo Agresti claims that the Red Devils have made an offer of 28 million euros.

This comes after La Gazzetta dello Sport declared that a fee in the region of 25-30 million euros would likely see Cristiano Ronaldo join Manchester City, but now the same fee is set to be enough for Manchester United to bring him back to the club.

The reasoning for Juventus wanting to receive this fee is because it is the amount that they still owe to Real Madrid from his 112 million euro move to the club in 2018. In addition, freeing up Cristiano Ronaldo’s 31 million euro a year salary will benefit the club financially as they look to rebuild.

Despite Manchester City being given the option of signing Cristiano Ronaldo and showing an initial interest in the deal, they decided to back out on Friday, clearing the path for Manchester United to have a clear run at their former No.7.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke to the press on Friday about Cristiano Ronaldo’s possible return, admitting that the forward’s Portugal teammate Bruno Fernandes had been speaking to him about his future.
