Cristiano joined Real Madrid in 2009 and owns the record as the all=time leaded scorer.

"And with them also on an individual level, I have the satisfaction of having won four Ballon d'Ors and three Golden Boots during my time at this huge and extraordinary club".

The Bianconeri are understood to be increasingly confident of signing the five-time Ballon D'or victor in the ongoing summer transfer. "My only feeling is of an enormous gratitude for this club, for these fans and for this city".

"Today Real Madrid want to give thanks to a player who has demonstrated he is the best in the world and who marked one of the most brilliant periods in the history of our club and world football", Real Madrid said in a statement.

However, I feel that the time has come to begin a new stage of my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept my transfer. I have felt the warmth of an incredible fan base and together we have conquered three straight Champions Leagues titles and four Champions League titles over five years.

Cristiano Ronaldo has completed his transfer to Italian club Juventus from Real Madrid for a reported 100 million Euros. The 33-year-old Portuguese star will sign a four-year contract worth about $35.2 million annually. He is the only player in the Champions League history to reach 10+ goals in seven consecutive seasons.

In total, Juventus will pay almost $400 million to acquire Ronaldo if you include the transfer fee, his total salary and Italian taxes (soccer teams in that country have to pay the same amount as the player's salary in tax). It's hard to imagine him playing with another team, since Ronaldo has pretty much become synonymous with Real Madrid.

His overall tally was more than double the number of goals Di Stefano managed in 11 seasons at Real, although the Argentine led Real to five European Cup triumphs against Ronaldo's four, scoring in each final, and was largely responsible for turning the Madrid club into a continental superpower.

Neymar, Neymar, Neymar. The Brazilian superstar could go to Real Madrid and do what he initially set out to do when he left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain: Step out of Messi's shadows and establish himself as the top player in the world.

The only solace is that they can still meet again in the Champions League.

He would come back to haunt the Bianconeri on the way to glory in last season's competition, too, with a stunning bicycle kick in the first leg and a nerveless added time penalty in the return.
