It is understood that the five-time Ballon d'Or victor agreed to a four-year contract for an annual basic salary of €30 million.

These years at Real Madrid and in this city of Real Madrid have quite possibly be the happiest years of my life. I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city.

"Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you".

Cristiano Ronaldo has the made an astonishing £88m move to Juventus after Real Madrid granted him permission to leave Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo, 33, is said to be ready to accept an eye-watering £26.5million-a-year deal after the deal was floated during a recent meeting between Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, and Juve chiefs Fabio Paretic and Beppe Marotta.

Sergio Ramos, Ronaldo's teammate for the entirety of his Real Madrid tenure, expressed similar thoughts on Twitter, writing "your goals, your numbers and everything we have won together speak for themselves".

On the eve of the World Cup last month, Ronaldo reached a deal with Spanish prosecutors, agreeing to a $21.8 million fine and suspended prison sentence (as a first-time offender, he's unlikely to serve any time). It's hard to imagine him playing with another team, since Ronaldo has pretty much become synonymous with Real Madrid.

He has scored a record 120 Champions League goals, 105 of them since moving to Madrid - 12 more than Juventus managed in that same period.

Marca added that English striker Harry Kane has been linked to Real Madrid as well.

Juve president Andrea Agnelli reportedly met up with Ronaldo in Greece on Tuesday morning, where he is now unwinding following his World Cup exertions, and the formalities were completed.

To put his prolific strike rate into perspective, Ronaldo toppled Real's previous record top scorer Raul's haul of 323 goals in 308 games, well under half the 741 games the Spanish great needed. He helped the club win four Champions League titles - beating Juventus in the final in 2017 - and also won the league and cup twice each.

Massimiliano Allegri's side claimed a seventh straight Serie A title last season by holding off an inspired Napoli, but fell to Real in Europe after a dramatic quarter-final, when Ronaldo ended a thrilling fightback by the Old Lady with a controversial last-gasp penalty.
