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