There was little left for Ronaldo, Real's all-time record goalscorer with 450, to prove in Madrid. "I feel that it is time, and I ask everyone, especially our fans, to please understand me".
"Real Madrid announces that, in accordance with the will and request expressed by the player Cristiano Ronaldo, the club has given its consent to his transfer to Juventus", read part of the club statement.
Cristiano Ronaldo's time in Spain is over.
Juventus themselves have had quite a successful recent history, having won the past 7 Serie A titles.
24-year-old Kane, who has captained the England team to the World Cup semis, just signed a new deal with Spurs before the tournament in Russian Federation.
Ronaldo signed a five-year deal with Madrid in 2016, saying he wanted to end his career at the club.
This makes Juventus one of the favorites to win the Champions League next season, combining Ronaldo with Paulo Dyala and Gonzalo Higuain up. "I'm leaving but this shirt, this crest and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am".
"Thanks to all and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago, 'Hala Madrid!'". Ronaldo will sign a four-year deal that includes a yearly salary of around €30m ($35 million), according to The Guardian.
He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup.
The Croatian worldwide, who managed two goals last season, is contracted till 2021. "I've also played in France".
Portugal's Last 16 defeat to Uruguay was Cristiano Ronaldo's 38th game in World Cups/European Championships - no player has played in more across the two competitions (level with Bastia Schweinsteiger). Whatever happens, Madrid must replace the goals Ronaldo has scored so consistently.
