Manchester United have agreed a transfer fee in the region of €28million to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo 12 years after he left the club.

Juventus reportedly still owe money on the €100m fee they agreed to sign Ronaldo for in 2018 and want it covered by United. The deal has been described by sources privy to negotiations as ‘amortised’.

United are planning a medical for Ronaldo in Lisbon and the 36-year-old is set to sign a two-year contract.

The United owners, the Glazer family, had sanctioned a belated move for Ronaldo when he appeared set to join Manchester City.

City have ended their interest in Ronaldo, although it was reported that Ronaldo informed them he was no longer interested once United contacted him.

Sir Alex Ferguson spoke with Ronaldo on Friday morning, when City were the only club interested in signing him from Juventus.

Ferguson’s intervention – as well as the backing of the Glazers – has prompted Ronaldo to settle on a homecoming at United, the club he joined as an 18-year-old in 2003 .

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke effusively about his former teammate Ronaldo at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“I didn’t think Cristiano was gonna turn out leaving Juventus,” Solskjaer said. “And it’s been speculation this morning and the last few days.

“We’ve always had good communication. I know Bruno [Fernandes]’s been talking to him as well and he knows what we feel about him. And if he was ever gonna move away from Juventus he knows we’re here.

“We focus on the ones we have there, I don’t want to speculate too much on Cristiano, what’s happening there with the press.

“I’ve said many times with speculation, when you’re Man United, when you’re Ronaldo, when you’re Messi, when you’re Pogba, when you’re Bruno, you have to read a lot about yourselves. So let’s see what happens with Cristiano, he’s such a legend of this club.

“Cristiano has been a legend of this club, he is a legend of this club, he’s the greatest player of all time, if you ask me. I was fortunate enough to play with him, I coached him (in 2008) when I got my job. He almost retired me in that Wolverhampton game (in 2003) when I got injured because he kept switching sides!
