Buffon: Why Ronaldo To Juventus Makes Me Happy

Cristiano Ronaldo

After nine years at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed a deal to join Juventus for a reported fee of €100 million ($117 million).

Manchester United were linked with Ronaldo but, after nine years as a Real Madrid player, he has chosen to join Serie A giants Juventus instead.

During his time in Madrid, the five-time Ballon d'Or recipient broke a host of records while donning the famous white strip of Los Blancos, including becoming the club's all-time top goalscorer, breaking Raul's previous record three years ago.

In all competitions, Ronaldo netted 44 goals for Real Madrid in 2017-18 - the only player to score more was Lionel Messi (45), while Liverpool's Mohamed Salah equalled Ronaldo's feat (also 44 goals). I only have feelings of great gratitude to this club, to the fans and to the city.

"It would make me happy because it is what the Juventus world needs, to find new idols and adore them".

"I believe that the time has come to begin a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept my transfer request".

Social media is blowing up with the news of Cristiano Ronaldo's confirmed departure from Real Madrid for Juventus.

According to the Spanish dailies Marca and El Mundo, its amount would amount to 105 million euros ($123m), while the four-year contract from CR7 to Juve would be paid 30 million euros per season ($35m).

Ronaldo is now on vacation in Greece following Portugal's elimination from the World Cup. "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".

@michalroman185 then chose to direct a tweet to United's official Twitter account, saying: "Thought Ronaldo was coming home @ManUtd".

He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup. I am leaving but I will always feel that this jersey, this badge and the Santiago Bernabéu are mine, no matter where I am. "The Real Madrid fans will always remember you".
