Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus

GETTYCould Ronaldo swap one European heavyweight for another in Real Madrid for Juventus
In total, Juventus will pay almost $400 million to acquire Ronaldo if you include the transfer fee, his total salary and Italian taxes (soccer teams in that country have to pay the same amount as the player's salary in tax).
Ronaldo's double against Juventus in the 2017 showpiece means he is the only player in history to have found the net in three finals.
The Portugal global 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 Italian side in a 3-0 win in a quarter-final first-leg game in Turin which prompted Juve supporters to give him a standing ovation. "Beyond the titles he won during these nine years at the club, Cristiano Ronaldo has also been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and constant improvement".
"These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life", he wrote.
"I only have feelings of huge thanks for this club, for the fans and for this city", he said. I feel it this way and I am asking everyone, and especially my fans, to please understand me. He will reportedly sign a four-year contract that will see him earn £500k per week at the Italian club.
Cristiano Ronaldo is officially out at Real Madrid and has transferred to Italian club Juventus.
The winger was converted into an out-and-out striker, scoring an incredible 451 goals for Los Blancos in just 438 matches, smashing the club's previous scoring record of 323 held by Raul.
Juventus themselves have had quite a successful recent history, having won the past 7 Serie A titles.
"I don't know, however, if there has been contact between the club and the player".
Ronaldo, 33, joined Spanish giants Madrid from Premier League club Manchester United in 2009 for a then world record £80 million (Dh390m).
Despite winning four Champions League titles in the past five seasons, the five-time Ballon D'Or victor is thought to be unhappy at the Santiago Bernabeu and is looking for a way out ahead of the 2018-19 season.
Earlier, Real Madrid had omitted Ronaldo from their new kit campaign.
Real Madridconfirmed the transfer late on Tuesday afternoon.
In April, Ronaldo scored a stunning bicycle kick in a 3-0 victory against Juve.
Interestingly his new club, Juventus, are the team he netted past the most times in Europe, with 10 goals.
