Cristiano Ronaldo will move to Juventus in a €100m deal, reports the Guardian.
With his agent Jorge Mendes, the Portugal international met with Juventus president Andrea Agnelli at Ronaldo’s hotel in Greece today to finalise personal terms.
Eyebrows were raised when the story first emerged before the World Cup finals began. However, it’s since emerged that Ronaldo finds himself at odds with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and the dispute is such that the five-times Balon d’Or winner is the one who will leave the reigning Champions League holders.
In his nine years at the Bernabeu, Ronaldo has collected an impressive array of winner’s medals for club and country. Four Champions League titles, two La Liga titles, two Copa Del Rey, and three FIFA World Club Cups. In 2016, he was a member of the Portuguese squad which lifted the European Championships in France.
This followed his three Premier League titles in six years at Manchester United. While at Old Trafford, Ronaldo won every domestic honour available as well as the Champions League and World Club Cup.
The two clubs agreed on a fee with Real Madrid confirming the deal officially, Ronaldo will complete his move to Turin where Juventus will aim to lift the Champions League which has eluded them since 1996, as well as continuing their dominance of Italian football.
