The Red Devils signed Ronaldo as an 18-year-old from Sporting Lisbon and under FIFA's Solidarity Mechanism rule United are due a payment from his move to Turin.

But the five-time Ballon d'Or victor sparked more rumors when asked about his future in the immediate aftermath of Real Madrid Champions League win over Liverpool.

The reported fee of €100 million would break Juventus' current transfer record, but in all likelihood, the Italians would be more than willing to pay up if it results in a Champions League title.

Conversations between Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid and Juventus had been intensifying over the past few weeks, reports our own Manu Sainz, but it was on 4 July that Jorge Mendes, the player's agent was told the Real Madrid's conditions for the sale, which allowed the deal to actually go through.

According to "COPE", Real Madrid still claim they have not yet received any firm offers for their star man, though they are expecting him to move on this summer. "It has been nice playing for Real Madrid".

The first signs of an uneasy relationship emerged when he declared on the pitch in 2012, "I'm sad and the club know why", and they reared their head again after the 4-1 win over Juventus in the 2017 Champions League final when newspaper A Bola said he had made a decision to leave.

"However, I believe that the time has come to open a new chapter in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept a transfer for me".

"Real Madrid announces that it has agreed to transfer Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus FC due to the will and desire expressed by the player", Real said.

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

Ronaldo was Real Madrid's top all-time goal scorer, with 451 goals since moving there in 2009. I ask everyone, and especially our fans, to please understand me. On an individual basis, with the Real Madrid jersey he has won 4 Gold Balls, 2 The Best, and 3 Gold Boots, among many other awards.

Real Madrid, on their official website, posted an emotional message by Ronaldo.

He has also won two La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues during his nine seasons there and a move away would be the end of an era for both the player and the club. The Los Blancos have a lot of incredible youngsters who can take the club forward if they get the opportunity.
