Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid for Juventus

Real Madrid’s star striker will be playing his football at Juventus Stadium in the 2018/19 season, after a deal was agreed for him to leave the Bernabéu to don the black and white of Juventus, with the Italian club paying 100 million euros for the striker, according to a Juventus press release.

The total cost of the operation for Juventus is 117 million euros: 100 million to Real Madrid, five million to the FIFA solidarity contribution, which goes to Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United, and 12 million in additional costs such as agents fees and commissions.

The five time Ballon d’Or winner had been said to have been unhappy for some time at Real Madrid, particularly over President Florentino Perez’s reluctance to improve his contract and what Cristiano Ronaldo felt was an obsession with bringing Neymar to the Spanish capital.

Cristiano Ronaldo hinted at move after Champions League triumph

In the minutes after winning the Champions League this year, his and the club’s third in a row, Cristiano dropped the bombshell that it had been “beautiful” playing at Real Madrid, clearly paving the way for today’s news that he would indeed be on the move.

Some, like team-mate Modric felt it wasn’t going to happen, but with news filtering out last week that his release clause had been cut to just 120 million euros it began to look increasingly likely that the Portuguese striker would be leaving for Juventus.
