Cristiano Ronaldo is joining Juventus after the Italian club agreed a €100m (£88.3m) fee for the Portuguese forward with Real Madrid.

Juve are ready to sign the five-times Ballon d'Or victor on a four-year deal for an annual basic salary of 30 million euros ($35 million).

PSG signing Gigi Buffon is backing Juventus' move for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

La Gazzetta said that Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes is expected in Madrid on Tuesday when Real directors are scheduled to meet.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli was at Ronaldo's hotel in Greece on Tuesday as discussions continued over the move.

Ronaldo, Madrid's all-time top goal scorer, has won the trophy four times during his nine years at the Bernabeu. He won four Champions League titles at Madrid and two league championships as well as two Spanish Cups and three Fifa Club World Cups.

"I know the mentality of the club, that they just expect and just want to win titles and that is my mentality too - I came here to win titles", he said.

It's a huge move that modifies the landscape of European soccer, moving Real Madrid from a top-tier Champions League contender to one with huge question marks up top. The club are also expressing their extreme gratitude to the player, and reeling off some of his eye-watering stats. Here's what the 80-year-old told an Italian television station, per beIN Sports: "In my opinion, he has already signed and passed the medical examination with Juventus in Munich". Individually, 4 Ballons d'Or, 2 The Best and 3 Golden Shoes. You deserve an important place in the history of Real Madrid.

He played for Portugal in the World Cup this summer but they were eliminated in the last 16 by Uruguay. During these nine years I have had the pleasure of playing alongside great players.
