After Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid confirmed the player's move to Juventus, the Italian giants have now released their own statement on the deal.

It has also been confirmed that Juventus will send the transfer fee to Real across the next two seasons.

In a heartfelt open letter, he wrote: "These years in Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life".

"I think that the moment has arrived to start a new chapter in my life and therefore I have asked the club to accept letting me leave". I'm for cohabitation. It's too soon to say [whether Ronaldo would make Juve Champions League favourites], but they're in the group of teams that can win it.

The Portugal worldwide scored two goals against Juventus in Real's 4-1 win in the 2017 Champions League final and earlier this season struck a jaw-dropping bicycle kick against the Italians in a 3-0 win in a quarter-final first-leg game in Turin which prompted Juve supporters to give him a standing ovation. That spot kick against his future employers was not only his last European strike for Madrid, it also made him the first player ever to have scored in 11 successive UEFA Champions League games.

Real has topped the La Liga twice and won the Champions League four times during his time there - Ronaldo is the first player to have five, including one with former club Manchester United.

At the same time, Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes was believed to be meeting Real Madrid.

'You have earned a special place in the history of Real Madrid. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our supporters, to please understand me.

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.

"Real Madrid will always be his home".

Ronaldo, whose Portugal were knocked out of the World Cup last 16 by Uruguay, hinted after May's Champions League victory against Liverpool that he was considering leaving the Santiago Bernabeu. 'We had a great time together in Madrid, I can't wait to get back to work with you!

Manchester United have always been linked with a move to re-sign Ronaldo after he left Old Trafford to sign for the Spanish side in the summer of 2009.
