Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a two-year deal to return to Manchester United.
The English club agreed to transfer him from Juventus for an initial € 15m (£ 12.86m), which could later be topped up by € 8m (£ 6.86m).
“Manchester United are a club that has always had a special place in my heart and I’ve been blown away by all the news I’ve received since it was announced on Friday,” said Ronaldo.
“I can’t wait to play in front of a packed stadium at Old Trafford and see all the fans again.”

He is looking forward to joining the team after the international games and hopes they have a very successful season ahead of them.
Ronaldo’s contract has the option for a third year if international clearance is granted.
Juventus said the initial fee is paid over five years and could be increased “upon achievement of certain performance targets” during the contract.
United last Friday announced plans to return the Portuguese striker to the club subject to personal terms, a medical examination and a visa.
