Cristiano Ronaldo will join Real Madrid.
Manchester United have accepted a world record bid of £80m (€93 m)for the Portuguese winger.
All that remains is for Ronaldo to agree personal terms with Real - his wages are expected to be in the region of £200,000 a week.
The deal with Manchester United brings to an end one of the longest transfer sagas in footballing history. Ronaldo, 23, who joined Manchester for £12.25m in 2003 from Sporting Lisbon when he was just 18, became the world's greatest player under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson. He scored117 goals in 290 games for United, and was crowned World and European player of the year.
