Manchester United have officially announced the re-signing of five-time Ballon d'Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo, on a two-year-deal with the option to extend for a further year.

The Premier League club announced they had reached an agreement with Juventus for the 36-year-old forward in a deal around €15m (£12.9m) plus a further €8m (£6.9m) in add-ons.

WuzupNigeria reported that the Portugal captain completed a medical in Lisbon over the weekend and he's expected to feature for the Red Devils when they welcome Newcastle United after the international break.

The 36-year-old scored 118 goals in 292 games for United between 2003 and 2009, winning three Premier League titles, the Champions League, the FA Cup and two League Cups.

What Ronaldo said

“Manchester United is a club that has always had a special place in my heart, and I have been overwhelmed by all the messages I have received since the announcement on Friday. I cannot wait to play at Old Trafford in front of a full stadium and see all the fans again. I'm looking forward to joining up with the team after the international games, and I hope we have a very successful season ahead.”

What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said

“You run out of words to describe Cristiano. He is not only a marvellous player, but also a great human being. To have the desire and the ability to play at the top level for such a long period requires a very special person. I have no doubt that he will continue to impress us all and his experience will be so vital for the younger players in the squad. Ronaldo’s return demonstrates the unique appeal of this club and I am absolutely delighted he is coming home to where it all started.”
