Manchester United have agreed a sensational deal for superstar player to return to the club, 12 years after he departed for Real Madrid. 

The 36-year-old is set to return to Old Trafford for a £12.8million fee which could rise to £19.4million with add-ons after the club stepped in following the collapse of his talks with their fierce rivals Manchester City. 

United said the deal was subject to the agreement of personal terms, visa and a medical, which is being carried out in Lisbon. He will reportedly earn a salary of £480,000-a-week, making him by far the highest earner at United.

Ronaldo scored 118 goals during six seasons in Manchester between 2003 and 2009, helping the club under former manager Sir Alex Ferguson win three titles, a , the Club World Cup, two League Cups and one FA Cup. 

A club statement said: ‘Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester.’ 

City were offered the 36-year-old Portuguese star, who had made it clear he wanted to leave Juventus, and were considered front-runners for his signature but decided the deal was not one they wished to pursue.

The move will be a kick in the teeth for City manager Pep Guardiola, who only days ago saw his pursuit of Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane come to an end.

United appeared to become an option when manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer held a press conference on Friday afternoon and said their former star ‘knows that we’re here’.

Solskjaer added that United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has been talking to his compatriot Ronaldo.

Asked why Ronaldo had supposedly been heading to the Etihad instead of Old Trafford, Solskjaer said: ‘I didn’t think Cristiano was going to turn out leaving Juventus.

‘It’s been speculation this morning, speculation the last few days, of course. 

‘We’ve always had a good communication – I know Bruno (Fernandes) has been talking to him as well.

He knows what we feel about him and if he was ever going to move away from Juventus, he knows that we’re here.

‘He’s such a tremendous human being as well, so let’s see what happens with Cristiano. Everyone who has played with him, I think, has a soft spot for him.’ 

Having missed out on Harry Kane, City did weigh up the possibility of signing Ronaldo, but came to the conclusion that the Portuguese was not the right fit for Pep Guardiola’s squad.

City were offered the 36-year-old Portuguese star, who had made it clear he wanted to leave Juventus, and were considered front-runners for his signature but decided the deal was not one they wished to pursue.

Ronaldo joined United in 2003 and had six hugely successful years in Manchester before he left for Real Madrid for a then world record £80million 

A club statement said: ‘Everyone at the club looks forward to welcoming Cristiano back to Manchester’.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of his side’s game with Arsenal on Saturday, Guardiola had been reluctant to be drawn on the subject.
