Manchester United are in advanced talks to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo on a two-year contract after submitting a €25m (£21.3m) bid for the Juventus forward.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has confirmed a deal that would see the Portugal captain return to Old Trafford is very close.
Manchester City were offered the chance to sign Ronaldo and considered making a move but pulled out of negotiations on Friday.
The 36-year-old’s departure from Juventus was confirmed by boss Max Allegri on Friday, as he told a press conference he was told by the player he had “no intention” of playing for the club again.
Cristiano Ronaldo boards a private jet in Turin after making a brief appearance at Juventus’ training ground earlier in the day – but where is he heading next?
“Yesterday, speaking with Cristiano, he told me that he has no intention to stay at Juventus and for this reason, he will not be called up tomorrow [against Empoli] and he didn’t train this morning,” Allegri said.”I’m absolutely not disappointed, because Cristiano took his own decision. He was here for three years, he gave his contribution, he put himself at Juventus’ disposal, and now he’s leaving and life goes on.
“Cristiano did a lot for this club, he’s a great champion, I wish him all the luck in the world wherever he will play. He is only to be thanked for what he did for Juventus.”
