  • Ronaldo signs for Juventus from Real Madrid

Another major deal on the go in Madrid is the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo, with Salgado hoping Real don't lower their asking price for the winger too much.

"I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me".

Ronaldo, whose World Cup campaign with Portugal was ended in the last 16 by Uruguay just under two weeks ago, hinted after May's Champions League final victory over Liverpool that he was considering leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.

Maybe it is all about Ronaldo's ego and the chance to win more trophies in Serie A, but it is not the one-team league that it has been for most of the seven consecutive seasons Juve have won the title.

He leaves Real Madrid as the club's all-time leading goalscorer, having bagged 451 goals in 438 games.

The Portugal global scored two goals against Juventus in Real's 4-1 win in the 2017 Champions League final and earlier this season struck a jaw-dropping bicycle kick against the Italians in a 3-0 win in a quarter-final first-leg game in Turin which prompted Juve supporters to give him a standing ovation. "Apart from the titles he has lifted, the honours secured and the on-field achievements during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been a role model in terms of commitment, hard work, responsibility, talent and self-improvement".

What many people thought was the rumour of the summer has turned into the transfer of the summer after the Italian champions confirmed that a deal for the 33-year-old had been completed.

"United have been interested in Ronaldo and they've been linked with him every single year since he left in 2009".

Meanwhile, Sport has reported that Barcelona are ready to make Hazard their marquee signing of the summer, adding that Hazard wants to leave Stamford Bridge to play Champions League football.

"For all their impressive growth in recent years, the concern for Juventus has always been that they would be limited by the simple fact of competing in a league whose worldwide brand continues to lag behind those of La Liga and the Premier League".

Real are expected to launch a bid for the Belgium captain after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus. But he still has it in him to take another league by storm, and that is why Juventus have made such a bold move by signing him.

According to Catalan daily Mundo Deportivo, the Italian has communicated to the Chelsea hierarchy that he does not want Hazard and Willian to walk out of the club in the ongoing window. Former Madrid team-mate Sami Khedira said he was looking forward to a reunion and other Madrid stars expressed their thanks to Ronaldo.
