Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus set to sign Real Madrid forward

Cristiano Ronaldo won the Champions League three successive times with Real Madrid

He is now set to be unveiled as the Italian club's record signing, eclipsing the £75.3m they paid for Gonzalo Higuain.

"Real Madrid C.F. announce that, according to the will of the player and the request made by Cristiano Ronaldo, the club have agreed his move to Juventus", a statement read.

"If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid, he will be eternally grateful to the club, the president, all the directors, the medical staff, all the staff without exception, as well as all the Madrid fans around the world".

The first signs of an uneasy relationship emerged when he declared on the pitch in 2012, "I'm sad and the club know why", and they reared their head again after the 4-1 win over Juventus in the 2017 Champions League final when newspaper A Bola said he had chose to leave.

"I think the time has come to open a new period in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me". These have been nine unique years.

After news of Ronaldo's move, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook bumped Juventus from 12-1 to 7-1 odds to win the Champions League next season, while Real Madrid moved from 6-1 to 7-1. The 29-year-old is renowned for his goalscoring prowess and has won the Bundesliga golden boot three times since 2013.

"In terms of history, tradition and ownership, Juventus have for a long time earned the right to be considered one of the big clubs in world football", Calderon told TMW.

Infinite thanks once more to our supporters and thanks also to Spanish football. During these nine exciting years I have faced great players.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

LeBron James signing a 'historic moment' for Lakers
The Lakers, a 16-time National Basketball Association champion, have missed the playoffs for five consecutive seasons. Stephenson says the Lakers want him to bring his defensive edge, be a veteran leader and just be himself.

He would come back to haunt the Bianconeri on the way to glory in last season's competition, too, with a stunning bicycle kick in the first leg and a nerveless added time penalty in the return. I'm leaving but this shirt, this badge and the Santiago Bernabéu will continue to always feel as my home wherever I am.

He finished his letter by saying: "Thanks to everyone and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago: Hala Madrid!".

Various clubs had been linked with Ronaldo, but Juve have seemingly emerged as front-runners in a deal which could see the Italian champions splash out £88m on the five-time Ballon d'Or award victor.

"This signing would allow them to further consolidate their superiority in Serie A and give them an extra gear in the Champions League too". In addition to that, Juve will have to pay the €100 transfer fee to Real Madrid.

The day Real Madrid fans have been dreading has finally arrived.

The 33-year-old Portugal star joined Real from Manchester United for a then-world record fee of £80million in 2009.

His transfer deal to PSG is also in doubt, with the French side's Financial Fair play case reopened by UEFA earlier this week.

The signing also strikes a blow for the profile of Serie A against La Liga, which has now lost two of its three most famous players in the previous year after Paris St Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona for a world record fee last August.
