Real Madrid have accepted £88m deal to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Juve

Patrice Evra offers Cristiano Ronaldo Man United transfer advice

"Cristiano Ronaldo, has agreed to his transfer to Juventus F. C".

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli had visited Ronaldo's hotel room in Greece for discussions, whilst Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes was believed to be meeting Real Madrid to seal the deal.

The Portugal forward, now 33, is far and away Real's all-time top scorer and he had a pivotal role in winning four Champions League trophies as well as two Liga titles and two domestic Cups alongside a glut of other trophies. Real Madrid is the reigning Champions League victor, while Ronaldo is the reigning Ballon d'Or victor.

"I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this fan base and for this city. For this, more than ever, I want to say thank you".

I think the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that's why I asked the club to accept my transfer.

"I have had fabulous team-mates on the field and in the dressing room, I have felt the warmth of an incredible crowd and together we have won three Champions Leagues in a row and four Championships in five years".

Ronaldo requested to be let go from Real Madrid, ESPN reports, but his old employers seem gracious about his departure.

In recent years they've failed to win the CL with Ronaldo often inflicting the damage.

A new era has begun not only for Real Madrid, but for all of Spanish football.

Although Portugal got knocked out of World Cup 2018 earlier than many expected, he led his country to victory at Euro 2016 despite getting injured in the final.

Ronaldo is signing a four-year deal with an annual salary of around €30m. "It has been very nice playing for Real Madrid".

Juve president Andrea Agnelli reportedly met up with Ronaldo in Greece on Tuesday morning, where he is now unwinding following his World Cup exertions, and the formalities were completed.

In all competitions, Ronaldo netted 44 goals for Real Madrid in 2017-18 - the only player to score more was Lionel Messi (45), while Liverpool's Mohamed Salah equalled Ronaldo's feat (also 44 goals).

Ronaldo is the only player in the Champions League history to have scored in 11 consecutive games (17 goals). After nine years at the Bernabeu, the Portuguese superstar is Italy-bound, as he will join the seven-time defending Serie A champions.
