Cristiano Ronaldo has issued an emotional goodbye to Juventus as he rejoins Manchester United.

The Portuguese star leaves the Serie A club after informing manager Massimiliano Allegri of his decision this week.

United moved swiftly to beat rivals Manchester City to his signature, with a medical taking place on Friday evening.

Confirming his exit, he wrote: "Today I depart from an amazing club, the biggest in Italy and surely one of the biggest in all of Europe. I gave my heart and soul for Juventus and I’ll always love the city of Turin until my final days.

"The “tiffosi bianconeri” always respected me and I tried to thank that respect by fighting for them in every game, every season, every competition. In the end, we can all look back and realise that we achieved great things, not all that we wanted, but still, we wrote a pretty beautiful story together.

"Bianco che abbraccia il nero, Coro che si alza davvero, Juve per sempre sara…”

"I will always be one of you. You are now part of my history, as I feel that I’m part of yours. Italy, Juve, Turin, tiffosi bianconeri, you’ll always be in my heart."
