Real Madrid Forward Cristiano Ronaldo Joins Juventus
Cristiano Ronaldo has become one of the four most expensive football players of all time after signing on with Juventus. The Real Madrid forward superstar has signed a four-year deal with the Italian club worth £99.2 million.
The football legend has won four Champions League titles while being with Real Madrid for nine years but he felt the time had come for a new step in his career. “The time has come to open a new stage in my life, that’s why I asked the club to accept transferring me,” Ronaldo said.
The amount of fees Juventus is paying for Ronaldo is set to break the record of their £75.3 million deal for forward Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli that took place in July of 2016. A pre-season International Champions Cup tournament will take place in U.S.A. during August where Juventus is set to play against Real Madrid.
Cristiano had nothing but heartfelt words for his time spent with Real Madrid, stating “They have been absolutely wonderful for nine years. They have been nine unique years. It has been an emotional time for me, full of consideration but also hard because Real Madrid is of the highest demands, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way.”
