Ronaldo completes Man Utd medical ahead of signing two-year deal

Cristiano Ronaldo has completed his Manchester United medical ahead of his stunning £21million return.

The Portuguese superstar agreed on a transfer back to Old Trafford on Friday.

He took his private jet from Turin to Lisbon to prepare for the international break.

But according to Sky Sports News, he went through his medical checks over the weekend in the Portugal capital and got the all-clear.

Now the final details are being sorted out with everything on course to be finished before tomorrow night’s deadline.

It is understood personal terms are all okay but the process to secure his visa is ongoing.

Ronaldo, 36, will sign a two-year contract worth £480,000 per week with the Red Devils and there is the option of a 12-month extension.

It remains unclear what number the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will take at Old Trafford.

He could have nabbed the No7 from Edinson Cavani – but his substitute appearance against Wolves yesterday ensured the Uruguayan will keep the iconic jersey.

However, he may keep the number but Cavani is unlikely to keep his place in the team.

That is because manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Ronaldo has been signed to lead the line as a centre forward.

A winger during his first spell at the club, he has transformed his game over the years to play through the middle as a clinical goalscorer.

Solskjaer said: “Cristiano has evolved as a player.

“He used to play wide right, wide left, up front. But he’s more of a centre-forward for me at the moment. Definitely.

“But there’ll be games where we play two up front and three up front. But I want him in the box. I want him scoring goals.”
