Ronaldo ‘Completes Medical In Lisbon’ Ahead Of Man United Return

Cristiano Ronaldo has completed his Manchester United medical as he closes on a return to his former club.

United announced they had reached an agreement with Juventus to re-sign the 36-year-old forward on Friday.

Personal terms have been agreed on a two-year contract.

The Premier League club will pay around €15m (£12.87m) plus a further €8m (£6.86m) in add-ons for the Portugal captain, who underwent a medical in Lisbon over the weekend.

Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 games during his first spell with United between 2003 and 2009.

Ronaldo is expected to have agreed terms on a £480,000-a-week deal at United, which will make him the Premier League’s highest-paid player.

And his return will complete a whirlwind week for the 36-year-old, who as recently as Friday morning looked set to join United’s fierce rivals City and play under Pep Guardiola.

But United made contact with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, while club legends such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Rio Ferdinand made contact with Ronaldo himself to try and dissuade him from joining the blue half of Manchester.

Speaking prior to United’s 1-0 win over Wolves on Sunday, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer backed Ronaldo to elevate the team to a new level.

‘Hopefully we can get the paperwork sorted and announce it,’ said Solskjaer. ‘He is a great player, a great human being. I’m excited to keep building this squad. He will bring something completely different.

‘Let’s get him back to United after the break and hopefully he’ll be involved as soon as possible. He will make us a better team.

‘Hopefully Cristiano can come in and show what he has done in his career. I am sure he likes all the talk about being old. Make it personal and he will show what he can do.’
