Cristiano Ronaldo Leaving Real Madrid and Joining Juventus”

"In addition to the titles he won, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and determination", Madrid added.

The first came in 2013/14, when the club completed La Décima, their tenth European Cup.

Ronaldo has scored 451 goals in 438 games for Real Madrid and will look to continue his success in Italy.

"Real Madrid announces that, in accordance with the will and request expressed by the player Cristiano Ronaldo, the club has given its consent to his transfer to Juventus", read part of the club statement.

"You tell me whether it's a joke or not, but for me, I'm serious [that Ronaldo would be one of two big transfers]".

Ronaldo himself has penned a letter to the Madrid fans, thanking them for the time he spent.

But they are not the only ones with faith in one of the best players of all time, with Juventus' shares on the stock exchange spiking by nearly 40 percent since rumours of Ronaldo's arrival first surfaced on June 28, and by 5.7 percent on Tuesday alone.

He has had the most successful stint of his career at Real Madrid, winning four Champions league titles and a similar number of Ballon D'ors.

Cristiano Ronaldo is officially a Juventus player after signing a four-year contract worth a staggering £500,000 a week with the Italian giants.

They have been absolutely wonderful for nine years. "I am sorry it is like this and I ask all of you, especially our followers, to please understand me", wrote the Portuguese forward in Marca newspaper. They have been 9 unique years.

Before his official unveiling in Turin, current and former Juventus players have been welcoming him with open arms, with welcome messages coming one after the other on social media.

Fellow Germany midfielder Sami Khedira, who was a team-mate of Ronaldo's at Los Blancos, shared a picture of the pair celebrating during their time at the Bernabeu, and he is looking forward to linking up with the Portugal worldwide once again at Juve.

Speaking on Instagram Live before the deal was confirmed, Evra said: "I haven't spoken to Cristiano about this, but my advice is, if he wants to play to 2050, he has to go to Juve".

"I have reflected a lot and I know that the time has come for a new cycle".
