Football fans react as Ronaldo completes move to Juventus

08 07 team of the quarter finals

After nine years, 450 goals and four Champions League titles, Real Madrid paid an emotional video tribute to departing "Galactico" Cristiano Ronaldo with the simple caption "Gracias Cristiano".

Juve will need to offload one of their key players to accommodate Ronaldo's arrival, given that the 33-year-old has agreed a salary worth €30m (£26.4m) per season.

"I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me".

"Real Madrid have conquered my heart, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thank you to the club, the President, the directors, my colleagues, all the technicians, doctors, physios and incredible workers that make everything work and that are pending every detail tirelessly".

Ronaldo, whose World Cup campaign with Portugal was ended in the last 16 by Uruguay just under two weeks ago, hinted after May's Champions League final victory over Liverpool that he was considering leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.

Spanish giants Real Madrid have dropped their interest in French starlet Kylian Mbappe and won't be pursuing him this summer. "Juventus are delighted to announce that the five-time Ballon d'Or victor has signed for the club on a four-year contract until 30 June 2022".

World powers back Iran oil exports despite USA sanctions threat
The list begins with an introduction that says: "The Iranian regime brought suffering and death to the world and its people". He said the package lacks workable solution and is a set of general commitments like the previous European Union statements.

However, the suspense officially came to an end on Tuesday, with the Los Blancos confirming that the Portuguese superstar will be joining the Serie A champions for a reported fee of about 105 million euros ($123.24 million).

Real expressed their gratitude to a player who helped the club to four Champions League successes, three FIFA Club World Cups, two LaLiga titles and two Copa del Rey crowns.

"Champions never tire of new challenges".

Ronaldo is now enjoying a brief break in Greece following Portugal's exit from the World Cup, where they were defeated 2-1 by Uruguay in the round of 16. And this last fact is what may have made him head for the shores of Italy.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has admitted that it is still his "dream" to play for Real Madrid, despite the departure of manager Zinedine Zidane.
