Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United return was the stand-out highlight on deadline day on Tuesday as the English transfer window closed.

His move from Juventus was teed-up on Friday.

Juventus had said then that Manchester United had agreed to pay 17.7 million dollars for their former forward, with the deal potentially rising by a further 9.4 million dollars.

The Red Devils said later the Portugal forward had signed a two-year contract with the option for a third.

His arrival meant Wales winger Daniel James headed from Manchester United to Leeds United —- two and a half years after a move from Swansea broke down.

Across London, Crystal Palace completed the signing of forward Odsonne Edouard from Celtic.

Newcastle United, meanwhile, brought in Mexican striker Santiago Munoz.
