Cristiano Ronaldo returns to Manchester United after 12 years.

<BBC> reported on the 28th that Manchester United will pay Juventus a transfer fee of 12.8 million pounds (about 20.5 billion won) to sign a two-year contract with Ronaldo.

Ronaldo made his debut with Porto in 2002 and grew into a superstar at Manchester United in 2003-2009. At the time, manager Alex Ferguson coached him, and it is known that Ferguson played an important role in this transfer as well.

Ronaldo won the Champions League title at Manchester United and contributed to the league title as well. After that, he moved to Real Madrid in 2009, and after moving to Juventus in 2018, he made a U-turn to his hometown of Premier League Manchester United after 12 years.

Before Manchester United, rivals Manchester City contacted Ronaldo first, but the deal did not go well and Manchester United took the lead later.

Former Manchester United player Lear Ferdinand said: “He will teach his teammates what a superstar is and what a professional player is. It will also affect the expansion of the fan base,” he said.

With the addition of Ronaldo, who won the Ballon d’Or 5 times and the UEFA Champions League 5 times, the attention of the entire Premier League can be increased.

Tottenham’s Son Heung-min will also play a dream match with Ronaldo. Tottenham Hotspur’s first league match between Manchester United and Manchester United will take place on 31 October at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
