The report adds that Ronnie has also undergone his medical last weekend in Lisbon before returning to Old Trafford. United has confirmed that it would pay €15 million and a further €8 million in add-ons for the Portuguese.

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri had confirmed on Friday that Ronaldo had no intentions of continuing with the club. While he was expected to sign for United's neighbouring rival Manchester City, Ronaldo promptly changed his mind once United stepped in.

Meanwhile, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær expressed his excitement at the arrival of the Portuguese, besides expecting to have the paperwork done soon. He labelled him as a winner, a great human being and hailed his incredible career. However, he also went on to warn United's players that Ronaldo would not be warming the bench and would be in the starting XI.

"We need to get all the paperwork done. Hopefully, we can get that sorted, and we can announce it 100 per cent. Then, he is away with Portugal, they have three games, his last game is Tuesday (September 7), and then, we can get him back to Manchester and involved as soon as possible," he told Sky Sports.

Ronaldo's initial spell with United was between 2003-09. During this period, he scored 118 goals in 292 matches across competitions, winning nine titles.
