Jose Mourinho calls Man Utd’s move for Cristiano Ronaldo ‘perfect business’ with all parties happy at deal
FORMER Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho believes Crisitano Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford is 'perfect business' for all parties involved.
The 36-year-old is on the verge of completing a stunning comeback to the Premier League and his ex-coach at Real Madrid has praised the move.
As quoted by Sky Sports, Mourinho said: "The only thing I say – and it looks to me something basic and logic – is that if Juventus are happy, if Cristiano is happy and if Manchester United are happy this is the perfect business.
"I think there is no need to talk about Cristiano.
"There is no need to make any comment about someone who plays, wins, scores and makes history for 20 years."
Ronaldo played under Mourinho at Real between 2010 and 2013, scoring a sensational 120 goals in just 106 LaLiga appearances.
The Portuguese forward's form helped Los Blancos win the Spanish title in 2011-12, dethroning Pep Guardiola's all-conquering Barcelona side.
Roma boss Mourinho and the departing Juventus star were scheduled to face each other in Serie A this term before his shock move was announced.
