Soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is heading back to England to play for the team where he became a legend.

Manchester United said Friday that it had reached an agreement to bring the 36-year-old Portuguese forward back to Old Trafford, where the storied club plays.


"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," a statement from the team read.

"Cristiano, a five-time Ballon d'Or winner, has so far won over 30 major trophies during his career, including five Champions League titles, four FIFA Club World Cups, seven league titles in England, Spain and Italy, and the European Championship for his native Portugal.

"In his first spell for Manchester United, he scored 118 goals in 292 games. Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester," the statement concluded.

Ronaldo said on Thursday that he no longer wanted to play for Juventus of the Italian league.

While details of the move were not officially made public, The Associated Press said the transfer fee would be $29.5 million. Ronaldo had a year left on his contract with Juventus. His contract with United is for two years.

Ronaldo played previously for Manchester United from 2003 to 2009 when he left to play for Spanish team Real Madrid before moving on to Juventus.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who played alongside Ronaldo at the club, said, "He is the greatest player of all time, if you ask me."

"Such a tremendous human being as well. ... Everyone who's played with him, I think, has a soft spot for him," Solskjaer said.

United no doubt hopes Ronaldo can help the team win the Premier League championship, something it hasn't done since 2013. (VOA/RN)
