Ronaldo's move was then confirmed by Juventus later in the afternoon.

It is at that meeting where it is believed the transfer was finalised with Ronaldo surrounded by his girlfriend and family, who is now on holiday with him. Chelsea winger Eden Hazard-set to play for Belgium in the World Cup semifinals Tuesday-has been added to Real Madrid's list of potential replacements, AS reported Sunday.

Ronaldo, a five-time victor of the FIFA Ballon d'Or as the world's best player, scored a team-record 451 goals in 438 games for Real Madrid since 2009 and helped lead the La Liga powerhouse to four Champions League titles over the past five seasons to go along with two league championships and two Copa Del Rey titles.

The Spanish club said in a statement that it was because of Ronaldo's intentions and desire to leave that they accepted the deal, but that Madrid will always be his home. "I feel that it is time, and I ask everyone, especially our fans, to please understand me". I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.

The 33-year-old Portuguese star will sign a four-year contract worth about $35.2 million annually. A staggering 450 goals in 438 games, but his fitting final act was lifting the Champions League trophy for a fourth time as a Madrid player at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev.

Madrid have won four of the past five Champions League titles, as well as La Liga titles in 2012 and 2017. Unconfirmed media reports last month said Ronaldo had agreed to pay a fine of 18.8 million euros ($22 million).

Europe dominate World Cup semi final spots
Brazil haven't won the World Cup since 2002 which is their second longest run without winning it. But the goals are not the only thing getting the 24-year-old respect in the game.

Cristiano Ronaldo is on the move, and the soccer world is bound to shake.

The Italian was also asked if he was bothered about the fact that his former club signed Ronaldo right after his departure.

"I have reflected a lot and I know that the time has come for a new cycle".

Since he made his Champions League debut in October 2003, Ronaldo has scored the most goals (120) and also has the most assists (36). 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 transfer breaks Juventus' previous record, breaking the £75.3m they paid for Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli in 2016.

He has since gone on to score 126 more times for the club, while his 85 strikes for Portgual make him his country's all-time leading goalscorer. He leads all scorers in the World Cup, with six goals for the semifinalists.
