Following the confirmation that it was a done-deal, Ronaldo himself released a statement via the Real Madrid official website which can be read below.

Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the most dominant soccer players of the past decade and the star of Real Madrid for the past nine years, is leaving the Spanish club for Juventus in Italy, the club announced on Tuesday.

"For Real Madrid, Ronaldo will always be one of his great symbols and a unique reference for the next generations", added the Real statement.

Ronaldo's Madrid contract, which has three years left to run, is worth significantly less than those of his fellow superstars - Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar - despite the Portugal captain helping Madrid extend their record haul of European Cup triumphs to 13.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has landed in Kalamata and taken a helicopter to Cristiano Ronaldo's hotel, ahead of a proposed move.

Ronaldo will now move to Italian champions Juventus and now has thanked the club and fans to understand his decision as he embarks in a new chapter of his career.
