Ronaldo said Ferguson persuaded him to rejoin United for a second spell at Old Trafford when he moved from Juventus in August 2021 on a two-year deal, returning to the club where he won eight major trophies from 2003-2009.

“Well, to be honest, it was close… It’s something they talked (about) a lot and (Manchester City manager Pep) Guardiola said two weeks ago, I think they tried hard to get me .” Ronaldo told Piers Morgan in an interview with TalkTV, the first part of which aired on Wednesday.

“But as you know when my story (was) at Manchester United, your heart, your feeling… makes the difference. And of course Sir Alex Ferguson too.

“I was surprised… But it was a conscious decision. Because the heart speaks, speaks loudly at that moment.”

He added that Ferguson’s intervention helped him decide to join United.

“I think that was the key. It was the difference in that moment, but I can’t be loyal if I want to, I wouldn’t say Manchester City weren’t close,” Ronaldo said.
