Real Madrid and Juventus agree £105m transfer deal for Cristiano Ronaldo

Share

In total, Juventus will pay almost $400 million to acquire Ronaldo if you include the transfer fee, his total salary and Italian taxes (soccer teams in that country have to pay the same amount as the player's salary in tax).

"The best option. Welcome", said the former Juventus striker, posting an image of himself together with Ronaldo.

The 5-time Ballon'Dor victor is Real Madrid's all-time top scorer scoring 450 goals and registering 119 assists in 438 appearances, averaging 50 goals scored per season.

In an open letter of thanks published on Real Madrid's website, Ronaldo showed his gratitude for the support from Real Madrid's fans over the years.

Ronaldo thanked Real Madrid for making his time at the club "possibly the happiest of my life", but added that he felt it was the right decision to move on. I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city.

New Juventus signing Emre Can was asked about the possibility of playing with the five time World Player of the Year during his presentation to the Turin club on Monday. Ronaldo will sign a four-year deal that includes a yearly salary of around €30m ($35 million), according to The Guardian.

Cristiano scored an incredible 451 goals in 438 games, meaning an average of 1.03 goals per game played for Los Blancos.

North Korea’s Kim writes Trump
Pompeo, Trump's point person for all things North Korea, conceded Washington and Pyongyang "still have a long ways to go". Moon said he believed Trump and Kim would eventually make good on the promise made before the worldwide community.

He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup.

Ronaldo had a barnstorming start to the World Cup scoring a hat-trick against Spain in a 3-3 draw, before Portugal was knocked out by Uruguay in the last 16 stage. "Real Madrid will always be your home".

Massimiliano Allegri's side claimed a seventh straight Serie A title last season by holding off an inspired Napoli, but fell to Real in Europe after a dramatic quarter-final, when Ronaldo ended a thrilling fightback by the Old Lady with a controversial last-gasp penalty.

Madrid finished their statement by saying: "For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of our greatest symbols and a unique reference for our next generations".

It seems like Mourinho prefers Ronaldo's Real team-mate Gareth Bale, who is also frustrated at the 33-time La Liga champions, and the Portuguese could agree terms with Juventus as early as next week. "I have had nine absolutely wonderful years at the club". On an individual basis, with the Real Madrid jersey he has won 4 Gold Balls, 2 The Best, and 3 Gold Boots, among many other awards.

Looking "forward" to a new team!
