The former England striker Gary Lineker has claimed that Manchester United vice-president Ed Woodward signed Cristiano Ronaldo while in his backyard.

Lineker, who lives next door to Woodward, revealed that the former Juventus star's contract was signed in his garden.

“I'll put my cards on the table,”

Lineker told BBC Sport

: “Ed Woodward's a good friend of mine and he's my neighbour. He signed Ronaldo when he was in my garden! 

“It was awesome. I knew when he walked in and he was on the phone to [Ronaldo's agent Jorge] Mendes or someone. I hope I'm not giving too much away here, but he did sign him, so... yeah!

“I've got a fantastic picture of him on the phone with him in the back garden, which I might share one day with his permission.”
