Manchester United have confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Old Trafford after they agreed a fee with Juventus for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Ronaldo is expected to sign a two-year deal subject to being granted a visa and passing a medical, with United having agreed to pay an initial €2om to the Italian club plus up to €3m in bonuses.

Manchester City had seemed the most likely destination for the five-times Ballon d’Or winner until Friday morning.

But after a whirlwind 48 hours that saw Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, hold talks with Juventus officials in Turin on Wednesday over a potential move to the Etihad Stadium, City confirmed on Friday lunchtime that they were no longer interested.
