Real Madrid confirmed the news in a short statement on their website earlier today.

Real are keen on reshaping their team under new manager Julen Lopetegui and the 33-time La Liga winners have also been linked with a move for Paris St-Germain's 26-year-old Brazil forward Neymar.

"Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved and the triumphs achieved during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement".

There was little left for Ronaldo, Real's all-time record goalscorer with 451, to prove in Madrid.

Ronaldo scored 105 Champions League goals for Madrid - only six clubs scored more over the same period! - and has either led or shared the lead in scoring for each of the last six seasons. "My only feeling is of an enormous gratitude for this club, for these fans and for this city".

Ronaldo himself has penned a letter to the Madrid fans, thanking them for the time he spent.

"However, I think the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to agree to transfer me".
