Cristiano Ronaldo has passed his medical ahead of his return to Manchester United.
Twelve years after leaving the Real Madrid club, the Red Deviles confirmed on Friday they had agreed with Juventus to bring their favorite fan back to Old Trafford.
The news came only hours after Man United ran for his signature, with town-wide rivals of Manchester City expected to return the 36 years old to Premier League.
On the side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the legend of the club will be paid ahead of £12.9m with a further additional £6.7m.
The statement from Man United confirmed that the deal was subject to personal conditions, medical conditions and visas, but two of these three problems have now been resolved.
Sky Sports News reports that Ronaldo has now completed his medical, having undergone it in Lisbon over the weekend.
The five-time winner of Ballon d’Or also has a two-year deal that will see him take a £6m pay cut, but he’s still the highest-paid player in the history of Premier League.
Gaining a visa is also not expected to be a problem, paving the way for Ronaldo to finalise his vaunted return to Old Trafford before Tuesday’s 11pm transfer deadline.
Ronaldo will join up with his new teammates after the international break, and could be in line to make his second debut for the club against Newcastle United on September 11.
The Portugal international scored 118 goals in 292 games during his first stint at Old Trafford, helping the club to three Premier League titles, one Champions League, two League Cups, an FA Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup, and the Community Shield.
