Ronaldo set to make second debut after the international break. Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational return to Manchester United has been announced, subject to agreement of personal terms, visa, and medical.

The confirmation marks the end of a whirlwind saga that saw him close to a move to Manchester City, only to return to the red side of the city.

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri had revealed that the forward had confirmed he had no intention of remaining with the Italian giants, as he sought a move elsewhere.

The 36-year-old had just one year remaining on his deal with the Bianconeri, with him set to become a free agent at the end of the season.

Following his decision to leave Juventus, super-agent Jorge Mendes spoke to a number of clubs across Europe, to assess their desire to sign the player.

City were the early frontrunners with Pep Guardiola in the market for a forward following the collapse of their move for Harry Kane.

When Ronaldo left Turin on Friday morning, he looked destined to be moving to The Etihad, but in the course of that flight the whole situation changed.

United quickly agreed a fee with Juventus in the region of €15million, plus a further €8m in add-ons.

Ronaldo is set to sign a two-year contract at Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side push for United’s first title since 2013.

Fans will be desperate to see Ronaldo back in the red of Manchester United, but will have to wait a little longer, with his second debut set to take place after the upcoming international break.

A medical is set to be completed over the weekend before he is registered, meaning they missed the Premier League deadline for him to play this weekend.

United head to Molineux to face Wolves on Sunday, but according to league guidelines players need to be registered to their new club by midday on the final working day before the league game they intend the signing to play in (Friday).

Ronaldo will reportedly complete his medical in Lisbon, with the player in Portugal ahead of the national team’s World Cup qualifier vs Republic of Ireland on September 1.

Portugal will then compete in a friendly against Qatar in Debrecen, Hungary on September 4, before he flies back to the United Kingdom.

Hungary is currently on the UK government’s amber list, meaning individuals will not need to isolate upon their return.

Should everything go to plan then, Ronaldo could be named in the Manchester United line-up for the home clash with Newcastle United on September 11.

And Ronaldo has an impressive record against the Magpies, winning 10 out of 11 fixtures he’s played against them, scoring six and registering five assists in the process.
