A report says, Cristiano Ronaldo broke a transfer agreement with Juventus in order to return to Old Trafford this summer.
Ronaldo had to violate a “transfer pact” with his former Turin club to complete a sensational return to Manchester United.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was going to join Manchester City in the final days of summer (football transfer news).
Only, on the very last day of the transfer window, deadline day, United swooped in and re-signed him (football transfer).
Ronaldo Broke a Transfer Agreement with Juventus
Ronaldo spent three years at Juventus before returning to Manchester United, 12 years after he left Old Trafford for Real Madrid.
However, while there, he agreed upon a deadline to complete his departure from Turin and this deadline was not met.
According to Cadena SER, Juventus informed Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes that the club was willing to sanction the 36-year-old’s departure. But only if all details were finalized by August 15.
According to the report, Juventus didn’t want to wait less than two weeks to find a suitable replacement for Ronaldo.
However, the Old Lady’s 2-2 draw with Udinese on August 22 prompted the attacker to push for an exit sooner. And he broke the agreement.
Now, meanwhile, during his second spell at Manchester United, Ronaldo has already scored four goals in three games. This includes the equalizing goal in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United (football results).
