Ronaldo, signed by Juve in 2018 for 100 million euros ($117.90 million) from Real Madrid in the hope of leading them to an elusive Champions League title, will leave the club with 101 goals, two league crowns and a Coppa Italia to his name.
Ronaldo’s departure from Juventus was confirmed on Friday by Juventus coach Max Allegri, who revealed he was told by the player he had “no intention” of playing for the club again. United’s rivals Manchester City were offered the chance to sign the Portugal captain and considered making a move.
However, the Premier League champions pulled out of negotiations.
The Portugese won the Ballon d’Or as the world’s best player in 2008 at United alongside his team accolades, before sealing a then world record 80 million pounds move to Madrid.
