Real Madrid confirm Cristiano Ronaldo transfer to Juventus

Real Madrid confirm Cristiano Ronaldo transfer to Juventus

On their official webiste, Real Madrid C.F. communicated that according to the will and request expressed by the player Cristiano Ronaldo, he has agreed to transfer him to Juventus F. C.

Baptista made the journey from Spain to Italy himself when he followed a three-year spell in Madrid with three seasons at the Stadio Olimpico and he said Ronaldo would be a good addition to Massimiliano Allegri's side.

The Portuguese is now on holiday in Greece, but was reportedly paid a visit by Juventus president Andrea Agnelli on Tuesday.

On the same day, Italian soccer journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reported that Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, was in Madrid to meet Real's president Florentino Perez and discuss a contract extension for his client.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor has been Real for nine seasons after joining from Manchester United for a then world-record fee of £80m.

Ronaldo was Real Madrid's top all-time goal scorer, with 451 goals since moving there in 2009.

Ronaldo, 33, has played the last nine years for Real Madrid, winning four Champions League titles and two La Liga championships.

The transfer is far from being completed but Cristiano Ronaldo jerseys have already gone on sale outside the Juventus Stadium in Turin this afternoon.

"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".

"But I think the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that's why I asked the club to accept to transfer me. I feel it this way and I am asking everyone, and especially my fans, to please understand me".

Real Madrid management also considers Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski. During these nine exciting years I have had great players in front of me.
