Manchester United have officially announced Cristiano Ronaldo who makes a return to the club, MySportDab reports.
The forward who left the club at a younger age to play for Real Madrid before switching to Juventus has made his comeback.
Cristiano Ronaldo is now a Manchester United player for the second time after deciding to make a move back to where he made a name for himself.
It wasn’t a hard fought negotiations with Juventus who were okay to allow the 36 year old make a move elsewhere as he was earning so much in the club.

Juve earlier confirmed that he wasn’t going to leave, which Cristiano Ronaldo also didn’t talk about making a move when the question pops up.
Although in the last few weeks it been really crazy after he posted a message calling out media for disrespecting him and his career.
In the new few days talks develop again and Cristiano Ronaldo himself told Juventus he want to leave the club despite still having one year left on his contract to run.
Manchester City immediately contacted his agent which talks of potential move started going on until United finally made their approach for him.
City dropped out of the race due to Manchester United involvement as the Red Devils had to quickly meet with Juventus and pay off the transfer fee of €30 million.
Cristiano Ronaldo earlier completed his medical which saw him signed his contract that is expected to run until 2023.
He will reclaim his number 7 shirt which was being occupied by Edinson Cavani who is also a huge part of the team right now.
What Cristiano Ronaldo Had To Say;
“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.”
Ronaldo makes it another major Manchester United signing this summer after the likes of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane who made their full debut in their 0-1 win against Wolves.
The Portuguese will be available for Newcastle United game which will be played after the International break that is already on.
