Cristiano Ronaldo joining Juventus in €100m deal from Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo wrote an open thank you letter to Real Madrid supporters that was published on the club's website.

This makes Juventus one of the favorites to win the Champions League next season, combining Ronaldo with Paulo Dyala and Gonzalo Higuain up.

Ronaldo, though, helped Real re-establish their status as the most feared club on the continent, ending their 12-year wait for the Champions League by winning it in 2014 and then leading their remarkable run to three successive triumphs, taking their European Cup count from nine to 13.

"I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this sport and for this city". I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.

Named the best novel of the last 50 years
Booker Prize Foundation chair Baroness Helena Kennedy said the story was "a compelling work of fiction". The victor was revealed at the Man Booker 50 Festival in London's Royal Festival Hall on Sunday.

Ronaldo was also moved by the Juventus fans for giving him a standing ovation after he scored a spectacular goal against the Italian club at the Allianz Stadium in the Champions League quarterfinals last season.

Sources confirmed to ESPN's Gabriele Marcotti that Real Madrid were willing to match Juventus' gross salary offer of around €55 million annually (approximately $64.5 million), but Ronaldo still opted to leave.

Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Juventus for 105 million euros.

Former Bianconeri CEO Luciano Moggi went as far as claiming that Ronaldo has "already signed" and is merely waiting on the formalities of the deal to be completed.

Many people considered that to be a contract renewal tactic, but it has proven to be genuine after Real Madrid announced the departure of their star man on Tuesday. "I have had nine absolutely wonderful years at the club". Chelsea winger Eden Hazard-set to play for Belgium in the World Cup semifinals Tuesday-has been added to Real Madrid's list of potential replacements, AS reported Sunday. This for me has been a very emotional time, full of deliberating, although hard because Real Madrid is at a very demanding and high level but I know very well that I will never forget that here I have enjoyed football in a unique way.

Ronaldo made his debut for Sporting Lisbon when he was 17. He joins a Juventus side who have won seven back to back Serie A titles, but who have not won the Champions League since 1996.

Additionally, the 33-year-old racked up an incredible scoring record with Real, setting in stone a tally of 451 goals in 438 games.
