Sky Sports News' Tim Thornton reports from Lisbon where Cristiano Ronaldo 'is tying up the formalities' ahead of completing his move to Manchester United.

Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Manchester United represents "perfect business", according to the club's former manager Jose Mourinho.

The 36-year-old is close to officially completing his move to Old Trafford after United confirmed on Friday they had reached an agreement to re-sign the Portugal captain from Juventus.

Mourinho, who worked with his compatriot during the pair's time at Real Madrid, approves of the transfer, which will cost United around €15m (£12.87m) plus a further €8m (£6.86m) in add-ons.

"I think there is no need to talk about Cristiano.

He signed for Juventus in 2018 for a fee of £105m and helped the Bianconeri to five major domestic honours including two Serie A titles, and finished the 2020/21 campaign as the league's top scorer with 29 goals in 33 games.
