Man Utd transfer heist stuns football

Ronaldo head;ine from the Telegraph

The Telegraph among others reports that Manchester United yesterday secured the incredible £19.7 million capture of Cristiano Ronaldo from under the noses of rivals Manchester City in what the newspaper describes as one of the most dramatic days in Premier League transfer history.

As reported here yesterday morning, City started the day in pole position to land the 36-year-old Madeiran before United agreed a fee with Juventus to sign him 12 years after he left Old Trafford for Real Madrid.

Portugal teammate Bruno Fernandes spoke to Ronaldo when it emerged he would be available and United sources believe Sir Alex Ferguson may have contacted him.

The five-time Ballon D’Or winner will undergo a medical in Lisbon and is expected to stay in Portugal for the international break before coming back to England to make his second United debut.

United moved late for Ronaldo after City had made the early running, It is yet to be decided which shirt number their returning hero will wear, with Edinson Cavani currently using the No 7 which Ronaldo wore during his first spell at the club. Cavani has been away from United for the start of the season for personal reasons but is expected to return. Premier League rules do not allow the changing of shirt numbers after the start of the season.
