Man Utd spend big on Ronaldo, Van de Beek calls Van Gaal and Dalot finds suitor

Manchester United have ended their summer transfer window with the spectacular return of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Red Devils hijacked the 36-year-old's move to rivals Manchester City with an 11th-hour move on Friday to end the attacker's 12-year stint away from the club.

Ronaldo underwent a medical last night and is expected to be officially unveiled as a United player in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want to use the final hours of the window to offload some squad players.

Daily Star Sport takes a look at Ronaldo's imminent move and who could be saying their goodbyes at Old Trafford in the coming days.

Manchester United have reached an agreement with Juventus for the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, 36, looked set to join Premier League rivals Manchester City after making it clear he no longer wanted to stay in Serie A beyond this month.

As the Citizens finalised a deal for the attacker, United swooped in to hijack the move, securing a spectacular return for the club hero.

Ronaldo's Old Trafford return is agreed, with a €23m (19.7m) transfer fee on the table, according to the Athletic.

The publication report United will pay €15m (£12.9m) up front, with a further €8m (£6.9m) in add-ons.

Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal has had words with Donny van de Beek, who continues to be linked with a move away from United.

Van Gaal has revealed that he has spoken personally to the central midfielder and informed him that the decision to omit him from the squad was based on his lack of game-time.

The Netherlands boss told reporters on Friday: “I called Donny van de Beek yesterday. I told him that he needs to start playing games.

"I did not speak with any manager of my players. Maybe it’s logical to talk with them, but I haven’t done it.

“I spoke (with Van de Beek) last night for 45 minutes, but I am not going to tell you anything. This is between Donny and me. I am capable of advising players."

Diogo Dalot is attracting interest from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

According to German outlet Sport 1, Dortmund boss Marco Rose wants the Portuguese full-back.

Dalot is said to be equally keen on the move.

The full-back looked set to play a back-up role this term but is now one of the more likely departures at the business end of the window.
