Real Madrid says Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving to join Italian club Juventus, bringing to an end a glittering nine-year spell in Spain.

Ronaldo's move was then confirmed by Juventus later in the afternoon.

"I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this game and for this city".

The fact he did not enjoy unblighted adoration from the club despite everything he had done for them clearly annoyed Ronaldo, as did the fact that he was not offered new bloated contracts every time he asked for them.

Ronaldo joined Real from Manchester United for £80m in 2009 and scored a club-record 451 goals and won the Ballon D'Or - awarded to the world's best footballer - in 2008, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017.

Sky Sports News understands talks have been ongoing between Juventus, Madrid and Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes.

The signing of the latest Ballon d'Or victor and top scorer in the Champions League for the last six seasons represents a major coup for Juve, who have had a stranglehold on the Italian title since 2012 but have not won Europe's top prize since 1996. I can only thank them all for the love and affection I have received.

The World Cup in Russian Federation may serve as a changing of the guard at the highest echelons of the sport, with Real Madrid forced this week to deny it made bids for both Mbappe and his Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar.
