Ole Gunnar Solskjaer welcomed the imminent capture of Ronaldo, telling Sky Sports: “We’re excited by the whole story Cristiano has had at Manchester United.
“Hopefully we can get the paperwork sorted and announce him very soon. He is a winner and a great human being. The players are excited, and l am excited to keep adding to this squad.
“He adds something completely different. It adds more confidence and belief to what we are doing and what we are building.”
We know he is a more experienced player than he was when he was here last time, he has evolved and had an unbelievable career. I’m sure he likes all the talk about ‘he’s too old’. Make it personal and he will show what he can do.”
