Italian Club Juventus have officially announced the signing of star striker Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. According to goal.com, a four-year deal worth 100m euros (£99.2m) has been reached between the two clubs.
With the signing, Ronaldo has become one of the four most expensive players of all time. The top two world record transfer fees have been paid out by Paris St-Germain – the £200m they paid Barcelona for Brazil forward Neymar last August and the fee of around £166m for France forward Kylian Mbappe in July after a successful season on loan with PSG.
Ronaldo spent nine years with the current European champions, winning several accolades to his name and for the club. “The time has come to open a new stage in my life, that’s why I asked the club to accept transferring me,” Ronaldo said.
The five-time Ballon’Dor winner is Real Madrid’s all-time top scorer scoring 450 goals and registering 119 assists in 438 appearances, averaging 50 goals scored per season.
