It was confirmed moments ago that the Portuguese captain has agreed to rejoin Manchester United after he told Juventus management and the board that he wants to leave the Italian giant club with one year left under his contract.
Reports indicate Manchester City was in the lead of bringing the player to the blue side of Manchester but the deal hit a standing block after City refused to pay 25 million Pounds or swap striker, Gabriel Jesus, for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manchester City allegedly pulled off the deal when they heard former Manchester United legendary coach Sir Alex Ferguson has called the player and he’s negotiating with his manager Jorge Mendes to bring him back to the red side of Manchester.
Ronaldo left Turin in the morning and arrived in his hometown of Lisbon a couple of minutes ago ahead of his medicals to complete his deal to the club he played for at a very tender age. He joined Manchester United in 2003 and left for Real Madrid in 2009 after winning the FIFA World Best Player award becoming the first player to win the award playing in the English Premiership.
The player has taken to Instagram to send an emotional goodbye message to his Juventus teammates and fans. He wrote;
Today I depart from an amazing club, the biggest in Italy and surely one of the biggest in all of Europe. I gave my heart and soul for Juventus and I’ll always love the city of Turin until my final days. The “tifosi bianconeri” always respected me and I tried to thank that respect by fighting for them in every game, every season, every competition. In the end, we can all look back and realize that we achieved great things, not all that we wanted, but still, we wrote a pretty beautiful story together.
“Juve, storia di un grande amore
Bianco che abbraccia il nero
Coro che si alza davvero
Juve per sempre sara…”
I will always be one of you. You are now part of my history, as I feel that I’m part of yours. Italy, Juve, Turin, tifosi bianconeri, you’ll always be in my heart.
