Real Madrid and Juventus close to agreeing Cristiano Ronaldo deal

Cristiano Ronaldo’s 100 million euro move to Juventus sends share rocketing almost 40%

Cristiano Ronaldo’s 100 million euro move to Juventus sends share rocketing almost 40%

After nine years at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed a deal to join Juventus for a reported fee of €100 million ($117 million).

After nine years, 438 games and 450 goals, Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer a Real Madrid player.

After nine years with the Spanish club, he will leave for the Italian side in a staggeringly massive deal. I am leaving but this shirt, this crest and the Santiago Bernabéu will continue to feel a part of me wherever I may be.

He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup.

"Today Real Madrid would like to thank a player who has shown that he is the best in the world and has defined one of the best eras in the history of our club and of world football".

His former Real Madrid teammates Sergio Ramos and Toni Kroos wished Ronaldo the best of luck in his next chapter.

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

The 33-year-old and his world renowed agent Jorge Mendes met with Juventus' CEO on Wednesday to finalize the move to the club that has won the past seven Serie A titles. Ronaldo has signed a four-year contract with the Serie A champions and will face the media on Saturday before being formally presented as a Juventus player.

Ronaldo will presumably feature in a two-man attack next to Argentina star Paulo Dybala, who naturally drops deeper in order to create chances for the Bianconeri, which could benefit the Los Blancos man.

Like he has in recent years for Real and Portugal, Ronaldo could occupy the No. 9 role for the Italian side, which is where the aforementioned Higuain has played since his arrival at the club in 2016.

Ronaldo left Manchester United to join Real Madrid in 2009, and won four C.L titles with the Spanish giants.

"I came to win titles, the first goal is the championship, but then the Champions League is here". According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ronaldo's Juventus debut could come in the MLS All-Star Game on August 1 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
