‘It’s been a pleasure, bicho!’ Sergio Ramos leads tributes to outgoing Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to join Juventus from Real Madrid. Personally, the player achieved four Ballon d'Or titles in that time.

The Bianconeri can feel emboldened about their chances of winning the Champions League for the first time since 1996 with Real's all-time leading goalscorer officially on the books.

"These years at Real Madrid, and in the city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest in my life", he wrote.

"I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this fan base and for this city".

"I thank Juve, because if after Manchester I continued to win and to run, it was thanks to Juve".

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

Ronaldo is now on vacation in Greece following Portugal's elimination from the World Cup. And yet Cristiano Ronaldo opted to leave nonetheless amidst his colleagues' confidence that he would stay in the Spanish capital.

"Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved and the triumphs achieved during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement".

A new era has begun not only for Real Madrid, but for all of Spanish football.

Ronaldo's best ever season as a professional came in 2011-12, when he scored 69 times for club and country.

I have thought a lot and I know that the moment has come for a new cycle.

It was understood that, after Real Madrid, there was nowhere left to go. I'm leaving but this shirt, this shield and the Santiago Bernabéu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am. Ronaldo scored four goals to take his tally to 85 for his country and break Ferenc Puskas' record as Europe's all-time leading worldwide scorer.

Although Ronaldo isn't showing any signs of slowing down at the moment - he hit the top sprinting speed of the 2018 World Cup, at 34 km/h - surely even he would have little resale value so close to his forties.
