"Real Madrid announces that it has agreed to transfer Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus FC due to the will and desire expressed by the player", the European champions said.

"Beyond the (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". When Deloitte ranked the 10 richest clubs in the world earlier this year, Juventus were only 10th.
