Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus

Serie A giants Juventus have reportedly agreed a £105 million fee with Real Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo leaves Madrid after winning 15 titles in nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Earlier in the day, Ronaldo's reported move from Real Madrid to Juventus gained momentum with reports that the multiple Ballon d'Or victor had already had talks with Massimiliano Allegri, the Italian champion's coach.

It's a huge move that modifies the landscape of European soccer, moving Real Madrid from a top-tier Champions League contender to one with huge question marks up top. Furthermore, with Juventus so keen to end their long wait for Champions League success, he joins a team with a very clear understanding of what they want, and what they hope he can deliver. I am sorry it is like this and I ask all of you, especially our followers, to please understand me.

Gorka Iraizoz is the goalkeeper that has conceded the most goals by Cristiano Ronaldo (17), followed by Diego Lopez, Claudio Bravo and Javi Varas (15).

"Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement".

Real Madrid will have a major task on their hands replacing their star man.

He has won LaLiga twice, two Copa del Reys and has also helped the club to four Champions League trophies, along with the FIFA Club World Cup three times and the UEFA Super Cup twice. Together with those I have the individual satisfaction of having won four Ballon d'Or and three Golden Boots.

Cristiano scored an incredible 451 goals in 438 games, meaning an average of 1.03 goals per game played for Los Blancos.

But in 2016 Ronaldo managed what Messi could not - winning a major worldwide title for his country - when he led Portugal to victory in the European Championships.

The 33-year-old striker is expected to have a medical in Turin next week before being unveiled by his new side.

It has been rumoured that he has already completed a medical and agreed personal terms with the Italian champions, with a deal for the former Manchester United winger thought to be edging closer.
