Cristiano Ronaldo joins Juventus from Real Madrid on four-year deal

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ronaldo's Juventus debut could come in the MLS All-Star Game on August 1 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The transfer appears to be good business for all parties; Madrid get to offload an ageing Galactico for a bumper fee, Juventus are receiving a player that has proved this season that he is still a world class player and Ronaldo gets a move to a league which is well suited to a player of his age.

After Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid confirmed the player's move to Juventus, the Italian giants have now released their own statement on the deal. 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.

The Portugal worldwide scored two goals against Juventus in Real's 4-1 win in the 2017 Champions League final and earlier this season struck a jaw-dropping bicycle kick against the Italians in a 3-0 win in a quarter-final first-leg game in Turin which prompted Juve supporters to give him a standing ovation.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term.

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

Ronaldo, 33, spent nine years with Real Madrid, becoming the club's all-time leading goal scorer and capturing four Champions League titles with the club during that time.

Harry Aubrey-Fletcher: He went to Ludgrove School and Eton with William and his father is the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire. As People notes, the ceremony was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury , the Most Reverend Justin Welby .

He is also a five-time world player of the year, a record he shares with his eternal rival, Argentine talisman Lionel Messi.

In the year of his 16th birthday, he played for Sporting Lisbon's under-16, under-17, under-18, reserve and first teams, and two years later he so impressed Alex Ferguson in a 2003 pre-season friendly that the then-Manchester United boss snapped him up.

Real Madrid have agreed to let the Portugese player leave.

Ronaldo signed a five-year deal with Madrid in 2016, saying he wanted to end his career at the club.

"I gave a lot of thought to this and I know that the time has come for a new era", Ronaldo said. "I'm leaving, but this jersey, this shield and the Santiago Bernabeu will always feel as something that is mine wherever I go".

Ronaldo made his debut for Sporting Lisbon when he was 17. He helped the Portuguese team reach the semifinals in his first World Cup in 2006. Ronaldo scored four goals to take his tally to 85 for his country and break Ferenc Puskas' record as Europe's all-time leading global scorer.
