Real Madrid star Ronaldo: Right decision to choose Man Utd over Juventus

Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo says joining Manchester United ahead of Juventus as an 18 year-old was the best choice. Juve famously had an agreement for the then Sporting Lisbon whizkid before United stepped in.

"I was close to going to a lot of teams. I only signed for Manchester United though. When I was 18 I was wanted by a lot of clubs and Juventus were one of them, but the club that gave me the most assurances about growing as a player and as a person was Manchester United," said Ronaldo.
