Ronaldo will return to Old Trafford on an initial £13 million deal, with add-ons of up to £7m.

The 36-year-old, in a statement on social media, appreciated Juventus fans for their support during his three seasons at the club.

“Today I depart from an amazing club, the biggest in Italy and surely one of the biggest in all of Europe,” he said on Instagram.

“I gave my heart and soul for Juventus and I’ll always love the city of Turin until my final days.

“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, tifosi bianconeri, you’ll always be in my heart.”

The great Portuguese, during his three seasons in Turin, scored 101 times in 134 appearances.

He also won the Serie A in his first two seasons and lifted the Coppa Italia last season.
