Cristiano Ronaldo has returned ‘home’ to Manchester United after over a decade. And, the announcement Friday, which put an end to rumours, has left fans in a frenzy and a little nostalgic.
“Manchester United is delighted to confirm that the club has reached agreement with Juventus for the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo, subject to agreement of personal terms, visa and medical,” Ronaldo’s team from 2003-09 confirmed. The announcement came as a sweet surprise as the transfer talk had triggered speculation as to whether he would join rival Manchester City.
