The Juventus forward is set to complete a £13million move to former club Manchester United during the international break.

Ronaldo has undergone a medical in Portugal, and agreed a two-year deal with the option of another year. The 36-year-old is expected to make his debut against winless Newcastle at Old Trafford on September 11.

Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer said: "Hopefully, we can get the paperwork sorted, and announce him very soon. He’s a winner, and a great human being. The players are excited, and l’m excited to keep adding to this squad. He adds something completely different.”
