Real Madrid and Juventus agree £105m transfer deal for Cristiano Ronaldo

Wanted man Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Real Madrid for Juventus in an £88m deal

"These have been nine absolutely marvelous years".

In an open letter of thanks published on Real Madrid's website, Ronaldo showed his gratitude for the support from Real Madrid's fans over the years. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our supporters, to please understand me.

Ronaldo will hope he can help Juventus win their first Champions League crown since 1996, an achievement that would add to his personal haul of five Champions League titles.

The signing of the latest Ballon d'Or victor and top scorer in the UCL for the last six seasons represents a major coup for Juventus, which has had a stranglehold on the Italian title since 2012 but has not won Europe's top prize since 1996. They have been 9 unique years.

Other players targeted by Spanish tax authorities in recent years include Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano and Luka Modric. Whatever happens, Madrid must replace the goals Ronaldo has scored so consistently.

And with both Portugal and Argentina being bundled out of the World Cup in the second round on June 30, it seems likely that the sport's crowning achievement will elude both partners in football's greatest player rivalry.

The Spanish football giant confirmed he is set to join the Italian champions in a reported four-year deal, saying he had "proved to be the best in the world" during his time with the club.

Cristiano Ronaldo headed to Juventus, leaves Real Madrid
A day later, Spanish newspaper Marca reported the five-time Champions League victor had begun looking for a house in Turin. And for $116.57 million , it's a steal even in this market, considering he went for €94 million to Real Madrid in 2009.

George Clooney hospitalized following accident in Italy
The drama - which Clooney is both directing and acting in - also stars Hugh Laurie, and is scheduled to be shown on TV next year. The John Paul II hospital in Olbia confirmed Clooney was treated there and released after Tuesday's accident.

"Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement".

"Real Madrid announces that it has agreed to transfer Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus FC due to the will and desire expressed by the player", the European champions said.

The Portuguese soccer star is moving from Spain's Real Madrid to Italy's Juventus, whose primary sponsor is Jeep.

Mendes has previously insisted Ronaldo would be eternally grateful to Madrid if he decides to leave the club this summer.

Ronaldo scored 105 Champions League goals for Madrid - only six clubs scored more over the same period! - and has either led or shared the lead in scoring for each of the last six seasons. "I'm leaving, but this jersey, this shield and the Santiago Bernabeu will always feel as something that is mine wherever I go".

Portugal was eliminated by Uruguay in the round of 16 of this year's tournament in Russian Federation. They have lost in two finals in the past four seasons, with Ronaldo's Real prevailing in Cardiff in 2017 and Barcelona beating them in Berlin in 2015.
