Del Piero: Ronaldo ideal for Juventus - and vice-versa

Del Piero: Ronaldo ideal for Juventus - and vice-versa”

The 27-year-old has always been linked with a move to Los Blancos, and with Cristiano Ronaldo looking likely to leave the Madrid club, this transfer could now become a reality for the Belgian star.

The multiple Ballon d'Or victor made noises to the effect that he may leave Real Madrid after nine years, following their third successive Champions League win in May. The Portugal star has served for 9 years at Real Madrid. I can only thank them for the love and affection I received.

The 33-year-old has repeatedly threatened to leave the club in recent years over contract disputes having come close to a Manchester United return several years ago before a late u-turn to pen fresh terms at the Bernabeu.

"I ask everyone, and especially our supporters, to please understand me".

But Balague says that the reason Ronaldo has finally followed through with his threats to leave is because he has felt a lack of love and appreciation at Real, particularly from club president Florentino Perez.

A picture of Hazard and two of his three brothers, Thorgan and Kylian, has surfaced showing the Belgian trio wearing France shirts as children, and Hazard admitted that he grew up favouring France over Belgium because of the former's 1998 World Cup success.

"Real Madrid would like to express its gratitude to a player who has proved to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the brightest times in the history of our club and world football", the Spanish club said in an official statement.

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

Ronaldo also scored twice in the 2016 final as Real downed Juve 4-1 in Cardiff.
