Cristiano Ronaldo will be laughing all the way to the bank having secured his money-spinning switch to Juventus .
The 33-year-old has ended his nine-year stay at Real Madrid by agreeing to join the Turin giants, who plan to formally announce the deal in the coming days.
The news brings to an end to six weeks of speculation around Ronaldo, who initially hinted that he would be leaving the club on the pitch after May’s Champions League final victory over Liverpool in Kiev.
Ronaldo issued a statement thanking Real’s fans after the news broke, saying: “These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life.
“I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.
“However, I believe that the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me.”
