Juventus' shocking transfer Cristiano Ronaldo has joined his former side Manchester United on this day back in 2003. He was only 18 years old when the then United manager Sir Alex Ferguson demanded to see the young talent in his squad.
During his 6-year spell in the Premier League, the prospect has developed his talent and became one of the world's best footballers. It was the English side where Cristiano began to fulfil his potential, winning his first Champions League and Balon d'Or trophies.
The Portuguese then joined Real Madrid at a record-breaking fee of £80 million. Having spent 9 glorious years in Spain and won 4 more Champions League as well as Balon d'Or trophies, Cristiano has accepted 'the new challenge'. The 33-year-old joined Juventus this summer and is ready for new adventure and new horizons.
