Ronaldo is expected to have agreed terms on a £480,000-a-week deal at United, which will make him the Premier League’s highest-paid player. He could make his second United debut on September 11 against Newcastle at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo was set to join United’s fierce rivals City and play under Pep Guardiola but United made contact with Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, while club legends such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Rio Ferdinand also called Ronaldo to turn down Manchester City and join his former club instead.
Speaking prior to United’s 1-0 win over Wolves on Sunday, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer backed Ronaldo to elevate the team to a new level.
‘Hopefully we can get the paperwork sorted and announce it,’ said Solskjaer. ‘He is a great player, a great human being. I’m excited to keep building this squad. He will bring something completely different.
‘Let’s get him back to United after the break and hopefully he’ll be involved as soon as possible. He will make us a better team.
‘Hopefully Cristiano can come in and show what he has done in his career. I am sure he likes all the talk about being old. Make it personal and he will show what he can do.’
