Manchester United have announced they have reached an agreement with Juventus to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo, with the completion of the deal subject to agreement of personal terms, medical and visa.

Ronaldo returns to Man Utd 12 years after he left them for Real Madrid, and is likely to sign a two-year deal at the Old Trafford-outfit.

The Portuguese international decided he wants to leave Juventus this summer after three seasons at the Serie A side, and Man City were initially seen as the 36-year-old's potential destinations.

Man Utd, though, decided to step in, resulting in a sensational deal, which would mark the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's return to the club where he first rose to superstardom.

"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," the Red Devils said in a statement.

"Cristiano, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, has so far won over 30 major trophies during his career, including five UEFA Champions League titles, four FIFA Club World Cups, seven league titles in England, Spain and Italy, and the European Championship for his native Portugal.

"In his first spell for Manchester United, he scored 118 goals in 292 games.

"Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester."
