I can’t believe what I am writing. Cristiano Ronaldo. Is back. At Manchester United.
What an absolute rollercoaster us United fans have been through the last few days. Ronaldo was on his way to the blue half of Manchester less than 12 hours ago. And just a matter of minutes ago he has just been announced as a Manchester United player again!
When the news broke this morning that United were rumoured to have approached Jorge Mendes last minute with an offer for Ronaldo, I thought it was all too late and it was just something to show the fans that they tried to get him but he chose City. I didn’t want to get carried away.
Then all of a sudden, bang. The news was everywhere. United were in. Fabrizio Romano confirmed there was an approach from United and Mendes was considering it. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked in his press conference about the rumours and ended it saying “if he was ever going to move away from Juventus, he knows we are here”. I almost fainted!
City then withdrew from negotiations, and all United had to do was agree a fee with the bianconeri. A fee rumoured to be around £25 million has been agreed and Ronaldo will be back at Old Trafford for the next 2 years. I’ve had worse Fridays!
