Ronaldo ends nine-year Madrid reign, joins Juventus

Ronaldo ends nine-year Madrid reign, joins Juventus

"The time has come to open a new stage in my life, that's why I asked the club to accept transferring me", the 33-year old said in a statement. They have been nine extraordinary years.

"He is growing a lot and I think next season will be very important for him in Madrid".

Ronaldo ended his letter saying thanks to everyone and, of course, as he said that first time in the stadium nine years ago, 'Hala Madrid!'

"I have had fabulous teammates both on and off the field, and I have felt the support of an incredible fanbase".

The signing of the latest Ballon d'Or victor and top scorer in the Champions League for the last six seasons represents a major coup for Juve, who have had a stranglehold on the Italian title since 2012 but have not won Europe's top prize since 1996.

The west London side capitulated late last season to see them finish fifth in the Premier League, meaning they will play Europa League football next year. "I'm leaving but this shirt, this crest and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am".

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 per cent since rumours of Ronaldo's arrival first surfaced on June 28, and by 5.7 per cent yesterday alone. Fans of the handsome game knew that they'd reap the benefits of watching Messi and Ronaldo, the two best players in the world, duking it out in La Liga each season-and that's exactly what happened.
