Football star Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday announced to switch to Italian club Juventus for a fee of €100m.

While Real Madrid fans have been left in disbelief, it's sheer joy for their Juventus counterparts.

Brazil legend Pele even also took the chance to congratulate Cristiiano Ronaldo on his switch to the Serie A.

Ronaldo, whose World Cup campaign with Portugal was ended in the last 16 by Uruguay just under two weeks ago, hinted after May's Champions League final victory over Liverpool that he was considering leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid are preparing to say farewell to their most-prized Galactico as Cristiano Ronaldo appears to be on the verge of an £88m move to Juventus, and Florentino Perez has wasted no time in identifying the man he wants to replace CR7.

"Ronaldo will forever be one of Real Madrid's biggest icons", the club said.

I only have feelings of great gratitude to this club, to the fans and to the city.

Leo said, however, that Trump would ultimately succeed at lining up conservative support for anyone he selected. Ms Collins has said she will not vote for any candidate who threatens abortion rights.

Ronaldo said his time with Madrid was probably the happiest of his life.

Diaz added Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen is also on Barca's radar, but the Catalans believe Hazard to be a better player than the Dane and also a potentially easier signing given the current upheaval at Chelsea.

We've seen Cristiano Ronaldo threaten to leave Real Madrid on several occasions over the years.

Madrid's current options for the attack are 28-year-old Gareth Bale and 30-year-old Karim Benzema. Kane, at 24, is three years younger than Hazard, and his full potential remains largely unknown.

Juventus is already witnessing the impact of the Ronaldo effect. The airborne volley will probably make the top 10 of his best goals for Madrid, which, given there have 450 of them, is quite a claim. Ronaldo has had an astonishing nine years in the Spanish capital. In the first-leg in Turin, Ronaldo scored twice and the second goal was an astonishing overhead-kick.

Since the club made official the signing of the ex-Real Madrid player, its number of Twitters followers has grown by 1.1 million euros to reach 6.17 million.
