Cristiano Ronaldo quits Real Madrid, signs for Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo quits Real Madrid, signs for Juventus

Ronaldo said in a statement: "These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life".

It is at that meeting where it is believed the transfer was finalised with Ronaldo surrounded by his girlfriend and family, who is now on holiday with him. This for me has been a very emotional time, full of deliberating, although hard because Real Madrid is at a very demanding and high level but I know very well that I will never forget that here I have enjoyed football in a unique way.

"In addition to the titles he won, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and determination", Madrid added.

In the wake of the decision, the club declared that they would neglect the official verdict and award the goal to Ronaldo, taking the 33-year-old to an unofficial 451 goals as recognised by Real Madrid.

Ronaldo himself has penned a letter to the Madrid fans, thanking them for the time he spent.

According to the Spanish dailies Marca and El Mundo, its amount would amount to 105 million euros ($123m), while the four-year contract from CR7 to Juve would be paid 30 million euros per season ($35m).

The Portugal global won four Champions Leagues and two La Liga titles, among nine other major honours, during his nine years at the Bernabeu. Rumors swirled the last few weeks that Ronaldo was on his way out of Real Madrid, and those were confirmed on Tuesday with the announcement he would be joining Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo is on the move, and the soccer world is bound to shake.

Ronaldo signed a five-year deal with Madrid in 2016, saying he wanted to end his career at the club.

A new era has begun not only for Real Madrid, but for all of Spanish football.

"I gave a lot of thought to this and I know that the time has come for a new era", Ronaldo said. "I'm leaving but this shirt, this crest and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am".

Since he made his Champions League debut in October 2003, Ronaldo has scored the most goals (120) and also has the most assists (36).

This makes Juventus one of the favorites to win the Champions League next season, combining Ronaldo with Paulo Dyala and Gonzalo Higuain up. He leads all scorers in the World Cup, with six goals for the semifinalists.
