Former Manchester United head coach Alex Ferguson has been involved in the return of Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo to the English club. The role of the specialist in the implementation of the transfer was described by journalist Samuel Luckhorst on Twitter.
According to the source, the leadership of the red devils consulted with the ex-mentor about the advisability of inviting the Portuguese. In addition, Ferguson spoke with the footballer himself. Only after that did Manchester United send an official offer to Juventus.
The return of the Portuguese to the English club became known earlier on Friday, August 27. Ronaldo’s contract with Manchester United must be signed after the player has agreed on the salary, received a visa and successfully passed the medical examination. How much Manchester United paid Juventus for the transfer of the forward is not specified.
