On August 31st, with only 15 hours left before the transfer window closes, Juventus finally confirmed the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo for a transfer fee of €15 million + €8 million in floating bonuses, which Manchester United can pay in five years.
Ronaldo’s transfer officially completed
Late on the 27th of August, Manchester United officially announced that they had reached an agreement with Juve to bring in Cristiano Ronaldo. Juve did not announce the news to the public at the time, and they finally spoke out publicly after four days, writing on their official website, “Thank you, Cristiano!”
It is understood that United had not actually negotiated a wage deal with the player himself, let alone a medical, before the official announcement of Ronaldo’s return. However, judging from the official Juve announcement, Ronaldo’s transfer is officially complete.
The transfer payment is the same as Juve’s usual operation, with Manchester United able to pay Cairo’s €15 million transfer in instalments over the next five years.
Another focus of the transfer market
This summer transfer window has seen Messi and Ronaldo’s transfers set the European football world alight. The transfer market has another focal point, and that is Mbappe.
From the latest news, it seems likely that the 22-year-old Mbappe will be forced to stay in Paris for one season and then leave for free next year to join Real Madrid. Real Madrid have decided to withdraw from negotiations after the €200 million offer was not met by Paris either. Then they are ready to move on to Camavinga, just waiting for the official announcement.
