Cristiano Ronaldo is a new Manchester United player, the club confirmed on its website. Following his surprise return to former club Manchester United, Ronaldo has written a farewell letter to Juventus fans.
On Friday night Manchester United confirmed the transfer news of his return to Old Trafford. Later the forward posted a touching farewell message with a video on Instagram. The one-minute video show reeled Ronaldo’s three years journey at the Juventus.
The five-time Golden Ball winner is returning to the club where he was named the best player in the world for the first time 13 years ago. United brought him from Juventus, where Ronaldo has played since July 2018, when he arrived from Real Madrid for 108 million euros.
He wished Juventus fans the best of luck in the future while reflecting on a ‘pretty beautiful story together.’ “Today I depart from an amazing club, the biggest in Italy and surely one of the biggest in all of Europe. I gave my heart and soul for Juventus and I’ll always love the city of Turin until my final days.”
“The “tiffosi bianconeri” always respected me and I tried to thank that respect by fighting for them in every game, every season, every competition. In the end, we can all look back and realize that we achieved great things, not all that we wanted, but still, we wrote a pretty beautiful story together. I will always be one of you. You are now part of my history, as I feel that I’m part of yours. Italy, Juve, Turin, tiffosi bianconeri, you’ll always be in my heart.”
Latest sports news reports United got involved in the story and ensured the return of the 36-year-old Portuguese after the drama in which Ronaldo’s departure to Manchester City failed. In the first spell at the England club from 2003 to 2009, Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 appearances. The Manchester club brought him from Sporting as an 18-year-old for 19 million euros, and six years later sold him to Real for 94 million, which was the biggest transfer of all time.
For Juventus Ronaldo scored 101 goals in 134 games in three years, helping the club win two league titles. He was brought in to try to end the Bianconeri’s Champions League drought, but he failed to bring them even close to glory, crashing out in disappointing fashion every year.
