Real Madrid transfer news Neymar deal crucial to Cristiano Ronaldo joining Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo is the most recognizable star in the world but fans are going to have to get used to him wearing a new jersey.

Ronaldo is signing a four-year deal with an annual salary of around €30m.

Real captain Sergio Ramos led the tributes for Ronaldo, who won 15 major trophies at Madrid.

Reports emerged a year ago that Ronaldo was again upset with the club's President Florentino Perez over a pay dispute and was intent on leaving, although he stayed on to lead the club to a third successive Champions League triumph.

Several players reacted to the shocking move, which is bound to cause ripples across European football.

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrating winning yet another Champions League trophy in what turned out to be his last match with Real Madrid. Meanwhile, Ronaldo's former club Manchester United are also reportedly set to benefit financially from Ronaldo's transfer to Juventus.

Ronaldo was Real Madrid's top all-time goal scorer, with 451 goals since moving there in 2009. "Real Madrid will always be his home". Yet any of the players listed above, and particularly a combination of them, would prove a welcome addition to almost any side-especially a Real squad smarting after the loss of their best player. "Strong hug and luck.!"

Reports of Ronaldo's unhappiness in the Spanish capital have become an nearly annual occurrence in recent years, although each episode had always ended with a new contract. In his 16 titles with the club, Ronaldo managed to win four Champions League titles and four Ballon d'Or awards.

Barnett said that his client will "speak to the [new] coach [Lopetegui] and we will go from there". "Now it's time to enjoy the moment".

According to reputable Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri, United are now not interested in trying to lure Ronaldo back to Old Trafford despite his wish to leave Real this summer. "It would be very, very important for Italian football if he really did come, and Juve should be applauded if they manage [to get him]", the 31-year-old said.

Cristiano Ronaldo has paid tribute to Real Madrid with a farewell letter. I only have feelings of great gratitude to this club, to the fans and to the city.

"Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you".

Ronaldo thanked his teammates, the president, the board and all the club staff before departing, saying in the statement: "However, I think the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to agree to transfer me". "I am sorry it is like this and I ask all of you, especially our followers, to please understand me", wrote the Portuguese forward in Marca newspaper.
