Juventus will pay €100 million ($158 million) for the move and another €12 million in fees to sign the player to a four-year contract.

It said the firm needed to guarantee the future of thousands of people, "rather than enriching only one".

Since Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Serie A giants Juventus he had not uploaded a picture to his social media accounts.

He added: "The marketing leverage that Juventus will be able to create will be significant".
