United , who have beaten cross-city rivals Manchester City to his signature, confirmed in a statement a short while ago that they have reached an agreement with Juventus to re-sign the 36-year-old, subject to him passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
In a dramatic turn of events, Ronaldo appeared destined to be returning to the Premier League this morning to join City, but United made a late move and have now done enough to get a deal over the line.
Unsurprisingly, the news that United had confirmed the return of Ronaldo to the club sent the fan base and just about every single keen football follower in England into overdrive, with the country set to welcome home one of the greatest players of all-time.

And Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford proved to be too much for the club’s website, with that many people trying to access it forcing it to crash for a short period of time.
In a statement confirming his impending return to the club, United said: “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.
“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.”
At the time of writing, the website is fully operational again and back running as it should be.
