He did, because they were the only club in for him. According to the Athletic, Mendes offered us Ronaldo even before that, but we didn't think he'd leave Juve.

Once we became involved, he chose us.

Who cares in the end? We got him. Is he 100% loyal to us? No, but that's a very rare trait in today's game either way.
I think it was clear from the reports that he considered Man City and that's when they were the only option (the clubs that could afford him). The moment we were involved, it was easy decision for him, at least as per the reports and how quick the deal was wrapped up.
Yeah I have no problem with him considering other clubs, including our rivals. Glad he joined us, and can hopefully lead us to great things!

Cavani alaready played with #7 yesterday. Dont think we have enough reason to convince FA to change the numbers now?

Confirmation of medical!
  • Personal terms have been agreed for a two-year contract.
  • Manchester United have inserted a one-year option on the deal
  • The required aspects of the deal will be finalised before the deadline, while the Visa process is ongoing.
I assume that means 2 with option to extend 1 more?

Will be disappointed if there aren't reports of him "having the body of a 20-something" following his medical

Aaargh thanks. Didn't know that. Still don't think we will take 7 from Cavani.
Apparently Cavani is willing to give up the #7. A special request needs to be put forward to the PL. It has never been done before apparently but it can be done. I think its beneficial for everyone providing Cavani is okay with switching. The CR7 brand is huge.

Our away end was buzzing after the goal yesterday. Sounded amazing on the telly with the "viva Ronaldo". Anyone got a decent clip on that?

Brilliant, I could see him playing another 3 years easily.

Given that PSG broke their record in social media with Messi's announcement I hope we do a bigger one for CR7. Has the potential to be the biggest ever in sports. Hope these guys make it worth it

The instagram and twitter post have already broken the record for most likes from a sports club.

Ronaldo's own instagram post will probably break the most likes in a sports related post(currently held by Messi).

We have already blew them out of the water.

12.9 million likes on Instagram for United since Friday vs 7.5 million for PSG.

I know, the confirmation and unveiling is what I meant. I see another record post for the club and player.

Is he at Carrington for the contract signing? Article says he's completed his medical AT Manchester United
He's in Lisbon.

It's poor wording. It should say 'for Manchester United'

Maybe he'll fly back here for the announcement/unveiling and then fly back. Or we'll do the unveiling after the international games.

It’s a good job we have international break so he should be sorted and signed for when we get back. He has to sort his visa out which I dunno how long that will take but it took Varane a while didn’t it.

Agreed, if it's possible and Cavani doesn't mind - it would be great.

No it's in Lisbon and he's staying there to join up with the Portugal squad this week. We won't see him at Carrington until after the international break.

Portugal has a match on the 1st, so it would really have to be today. Otherwise, we'll see an announcement whilst he's away like how Pogba did with Lukaku. Maybe we'll see something with Bruno and Ronaldo.

Cavani likely won't mind.

I doubt we'd force him to change numbers, but he'll give it up knowing Ronaldo's history with the number at the club.

The Premier League won't decline the request.

I just realized that Pogba hasn't been active on social media for a few days, and hasn't been hyping Ronaldos signing either. Felt a little out of place since he's been so active lately
I thought the same. I think he knows he is leaving, or doesn't like not being the main man.

He posted on twitter after the win.

Cue Klopp moaning about it after.

I was gonna say it’ll be moved but I don’t think it can with the CL game mid week.
This could be the most illegally streamed game in the history of UK tv.
