Real Madrid, Juventus 'finalise Cristiano Ronaldo transfer'

Sidney Guerrero | 10 July, 2018, 23:14

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is set to join Juventus, the Spanish club have confirmed. But with his Spanish tax issue also a regular news item, his love of life in Spain is also understood to have waned.

Talks have been ongoing between Juventus, Madrid and Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes in the last few days.

In Italy, a new law caps tax on income generated from overseas at 100,000 euros ($117,000) per year for residents who have paid their taxes in other countries for at least nine of the last 10 years.

He added that the loss of Zinedine Zidane, who has been replaced by Julen Lopetegui at Real, doesn't change the club's appeal. He leads all scorers in the World Cup, with six goals for the semifinalists.

The Portuguese superstar, who arrived at the Bernabéu for a world record fee in 2009, moved to the Italian champions for a reported fee of 105 million euros after breaking Real Madrid's scoring record and landing four Ballons d'Or and four Champions League titles during his Bernabéu career.

"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".

"For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of its greatest symbols and a unique reference for the generations to come", the club said.

Ronaldo won 15 titles with Ramos at Real Madrid.

Ronaldo himself has penned a letter to the Madrid fans, thanking them for the time he spent.

The Portugal global scored two goals against Juventus in Real's 4-1 win in the 2017 UCL final and earlier this season struck a jaw-dropping bicycle kick against the Italians in a 3-0 win in a quarterfinal first-leg game in Turin which prompted Juventus supporters to give him a standing ovation.

Cristiano Ronaldo has received a special message from Sergio Ramos. I'm leaving but this shirt, this badge and the Santiago Bernabéu will always feel my own, wherever I am.

Jeep gave every member of Juventus a new Grand Cherokee Summit a few years ago, but that might be too mundane for someone like Ronaldo, who spends most of his time on Instagram in high performance machines like Lamborghinis and Bugattis.

Ronaldo made his debut for Sporting Lisbon when he was 17.

"I came to win titles, the first goal is the championship, but then the Champions League is here".
