After nine successful years as a member of Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has decided to take his talents to Juventus for a reported £105m transfer fee.
Ronaldo leaves La Liga having amassed a club-record 451 goals in 438 appearances with Real. The Portuguese superstar accomplished far more than individual accolades during his tenure with the club, leading Los Blancos to four Champions League titles, including three consecutively.
Safe to say Twitter is ablaze following the news:
Ronaldo to Juve done. Stunned. What a day for Juve and Serie A! Enjoy.

Last time a Serie A Club signed a guy with Ballon d’Or credentials AT THE TIME (ie not on his way up like Kaka or already on his way down like Ronaldinho/Figo) he was also named Ronaldo

I don’t think we’ll ever see a rivalry like Messi’s Barca v Ronaldo’s Madrid again… Not in my lifetime.
Truly one for the ages.
