Trophy challenges and lofty ambitions motivated Emre Can move to Juventus

Trophy challenges and lofty ambitions motivated Emre Can move to Juventus”

They didn't, which is a big part of the reason Juventus is willing to pay a reported $35 million to bring Ronaldo to the team.

"For any player it would be great to play with someone like Cristiano Ronaldo", he said.

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 Saint-Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona last August.

"Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proven to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the greatest eras in the history of our club and of world soccer", Real Madrid said in a statement.

Ronaldo, whose Portugal were knocked out of the World Cup last 16 by Uruguay, hinted after May's Champions League victory against Liverpool that he was considering leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.

Having scored 450 goals and won four Champions League titles at Madrid, Ronaldo was moved to address Real's fanbase after putting pen to paper on a £500,000-a-week deal at Juve.

He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup.

If Ronaldo does join Juventus, manager Massimiliano Allegri is expected to give the 33-year-old forward a starring role in his starting XI, which leaves Gonzalo Higuain's future at the club in doubt.

Real Madrid announced the move Tuesday.

Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d'Or victor, will now have the chance to win a European league title with a third club after completing a shock move to Turin.

"However, I think that the moment has arrived to start a new chapter in my life and therefore I have asked the club to accept letting me leave".

Reports emerged past year that Ronaldo was again upset with the club's President Florentino Perez over a pay dispute and was intent on leaving, although he stayed on to lead the club to a third successive Champions League triumph.

"Aside from the individual honours, the trophies won and the triumphs on the pitch during the last nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, hard wok, responsibility and self-improvement".

He is also a five-time world player of the year, a record he shares with his eternal rival, Argentine talisman Lionel Messi.

He scored 451 goals for the side in 438 games, and won 17 major trophies in total.
