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

Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid as the club's record goalscorer having scored a remarkable 451 goals in 438 appearances for the Spanish side.

Though Juventus didn't confirm the transfer until later in the day, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor said his farewells to Madrid in a letter published on the LaLiga club's website.

"I can only give enormous thanks to this club, these fans and this city".

He finished his letter by saying: "Thanks to everyone and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago: Hala Madrid!".

"I think the time has come to open a new period in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me".

"I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me", Ronaldo said. Ronaldo will sign a four-year deal that includes a yearly salary of around €30m ($35 million), according to The Guardian.

Gary Neville has revealed his shock at Cristiano Ronaldo's transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus.

According to recent surveys by non-partisan British polling organization YouGov, only 11 percent of Britons said they thought Mr. The comments, following on from the morning press conference, will be a cause of great concern for Mrs May.

Real Madrid described Ronaldo as one of the club's "great symbols" for his success on the pitch and the example he led off it. "Real Madrid will always be his home".

The 33-year-old would be a massive signing for Juventus, as Max Allegri looks to claim a Champions League trophy that has so far alluded him in his career.

Talks have been ongoing between Juventus, Madrid and Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes in the last few days. His time there was a massive success and Cristiano became a legend in the all-white shirt - winning four Champions Leagues titles and becoming the club's highest ever goal scorer.

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.

Soon after, Paulo Dybala, who was at one point a target for Real Madrid, left a short message on his Instagram account for Cristiano.

While the signing presents a huge financial outlay for I Bianconeri, it also presents a huge marketing and sporting opportunity for the club and its parent company: Exor holding company.

In April, Ronaldo scored a stunning bicycle kick in a 3-0 victory against Juve. And together with them in addition, on an individual level, I have had the satisfaction of having won four Ballons d'Or and three Golden Boots, all during my tenure at this most vast and extraordinary club.
