Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus set to sign Real Madrid forward

Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus set to sign Real Madrid forward

"Real Madrid announces that it has agreed to transfer Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus FC due to the will and desire expressed by the player", the Madrid-based club said in a statement.

Both players have been linked with a move to Real Madrid before the transfer window closes next month, and Giroud insists that they are "both geniuses".

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was special from an early age.

At the same time, Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes was believed to be meeting Real Madrid.

Juventus are record Italian champions and have won seven consecutive Serie A titles.

Ronaldo ends a glorious trophy-laden spell in the Spanish capital, having picked up 16 titles including no less than three FIFA Club World Cups, four UEFA Champions Leagues - including the last three - and two league titles.

"The victor of Belgium v France will be the firm favourites to win a World Cup that has made for compelling viewing from first to last", he added.

"Thanks to all and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago, 'Hala Madrid!'". "I'm leaving, but this jersey, this shield and the Santiago Bernabeu will always feel as something that is mine wherever I go".

According to the Spanish dailies Marca and El Mundo, its amount would amount to 105 million euros ($123m), while the four-year contract from CR7 to Juve would be paid 30 million euros per season ($35m).

Since he made his Champions League debut in October 2003, Ronaldo has scored the most goals (120) and also has the most assists (36). He helped the Portuguese team reach the semifinals in his first World Cup in 2006.

But he only bagged one more goal before Portugal fell to Uruguay, and will be 37 by the time the next global showpiece rolls around - meaning it is unlikely he will improve on a run to the semi-finals 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 worldwide scorer.
