Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer: Who Will Replace Juventus-Bound Legend at Real Madrid?

Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer: Who Will Replace Juventus-Bound Legend at Real Madrid?

With Italian giants Juventus reportedly closing in on Cristiano Ronaldo's signature for a fee believed to be €100 million (R1.5 billion), here is how they could line up with the Real Madrid superstar on their books.

While the Portuguese's move to Juventus is not yet confirmed, the former Manchester United star will certainly bring the Serie A side plenty of experience and many goals, following his 450 goals in 438 matches for Real, if he does make Turin his new home.

The move brings an end to a hugely successful nine-year spell in Spain, and takes him further away from a tax fraud case that may end up costing the Portugal forward more than $20 million in fines.

There was little left for Ronaldo, Real's all-time record goalscorer with 451, to prove in Madrid.

"I'm leaving but this shirt, this badge and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to always feel my own wherever I am".

Juventus said Tuesday it paid 112 million euros ($131.5 million) for Ronaldo, who signed a four-year deal with the Serie A champions.

He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup.


It's hard to imagine him playing with another team, since Ronaldo has pretty much become synonymous with Real Madrid.

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

The Italian publication also reported that Ronaldo and Juventus head coach Max Allegri had spoken on the phone last Friday.

In a letter posted on Real Madrid's website, the multiple Ballon d'Or victor said his time in Madrid had been one of the happiest in his life.

Jeep gave every member of Juventus a new Grand Cherokee Summit a few years ago, but that might be too mundane for someone like Ronaldo, who spends most of his time on Instagram in high performance machines like Lamborghinis and Bugattis.

Real Madrid has won a place in my heart and in the hearts of my family, and for that I want more than ever to say thank you: thank you to the club, to the president, to the board, to my teammates, to all the coaches, physios and awesome employees that make everything work and who are tirelessly attentive to every detail.

"I came to win titles, the first goal is the championship, but then the Champions League is here".
