Cristiano Ronaldo ends nine-year Madrid reign, joins Juventus

The Old Lady state that the transfer fee amounts to 112 million euros, breaking down into 100m euros for Madrid with 12m euros for training rights, which is expected to be shared between Sporting CP and Manchester United according to Federation Internationale de Football Association regulation.

Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus in a move expected to benefit the Portugal forward's tax return.

The World Cup in Russian Federation may serve as a changing of the guard at the highest echelons of the sport, with Real Madrid forced this week to deny it made bids for both Mbappe and his Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar. I have felt the warmth of an incredible fan base and together we have conquered three straight Champions Leagues titles and four Champions League titles over five years.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term.

The 33-year-old five-time World Player of the Year was moved on Tuesday for a fee reported in Italian and Spanish media as $123m.

Yet until Los Merengues secure another "Galactico" to replace Ronaldo, there will naturally be doubts about the club's ability to win a fourth Champions League trophy in a row.

"I have reflected a lot and I know that the moment has arrived for a new cycle".

The signing broke the Serie A record, which Juventus set two years ago when it paid Napoli 90 million euros (then $99 million) for Gonzalo Higuain. His crossover dribble was already famous when Alex Ferguson brought him to Manchester United ahead of the 2003-04 season and gave him the No. 7 shirt of the recently departed David Beckham.

Ronaldo's first game for Juventus could be against his former club.

Reports emerged past year 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.
