Gary Lineker reacts to Man United’s latest transfer deal
Gary Lineker has taken to social media to praise Manchester United’s transfer deals after confirming a deal to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus.
The future of the Portuguese superstar has been a topic of discussion in recent days after it emerged that he will be leaving the Serie A club before the summer transfer window closes.
Manchester City had been heavily linked with a move by the former Real Madrid star, but Manchester United won the race for his signing and confirmed they had reached a deal with Juventus on Friday afternoon.
Publication on Twitter after confirming the news on Friday, Lineker wrote: “Latest news: @Cristiano is going back to @ManUtd.
“Wow! Just wow. What a signing. What a transfer window for United. What a homecoming. To love.”
United said the deal was subject to personal conditions, a visa and a medical examination.
Ronaldo left Manchester United to sign for Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 for a world record transfer fee.
The Portugal international signed for Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018 and became the fastest player to score 100 goals for the Italian club, a feat he achieved in 131 games.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Wolves away on Sunday afternoon.
