According to initial information, the striker born in 1985 will put pen to paper on a 2-year contract (until June 2023) with Manchester United. At Old Trafford, Ronaldo receives a salary of about 25 million euros/season (lower than at Juventus 5 million euros/season) along with other bonuses.
To get the service of CR7, the Red Devils are said to have spent more than 20 million euros in exchange for a nod from the Turin team. Currently, Ronaldo has returned to his native Portugal. It is expected that he will undergo a medical in Lisbon and send the results to Manchester United before making his debut for the new team this weekend.
Manchester United is the place that made Ronaldo the world’s top star
Previously, there were many rumors that Ronaldo was very close to Manchester City when the news that the 36-year-old superstar was about to leave Juventus. Many people believed that the 36-year-old striker would join The Citizens if both teams could remove the only barrier, the method of transfer. Therefore, the sudden return of the Portuguese superstar to his old team has surprised many people.
In 3 seasons with Juventus (2018-2021), Ronaldo contributed a total of 101 goals (including 81 in Serie A) after 134 matches. He also helped “The Old Lady” win 2 consecutive Scudetto titles in the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 seasons. However, the inability to fulfill the ambition in the Champions League arena has made both Juventus and Ronaldo no longer interested in each other.
