Ronaldo has accomplished every major achievement with Real Madrid and he said it was just time for a change.
It is at that meeting where it is believed the transfer was finalised with Ronaldo surrounded by his girlfriend and family, who is now on holiday with him.
It was understood that, after Real Madrid, there was nowhere left to go.
In a statement, the club admitted that they had granted Ronaldo with his wish to leave the club. It has been an exciting time for me, full of consideration but also hard because Real Madrid is of a very high demand, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way.
Following his move to pastures new in Turin, Ronaldo has ended an illustrious nine-year stint at the Bernabeu's hallowed turf with a sensational 450 goals in only 438 matches across all competitions for the club since completing a move from Manchester United in 2009. "Beyond the titles he won during these nine years at the club, Cristiano Ronaldo has also been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and constant improvement". I can only give thanks to all of them for the love and affection that I have received.
Ronaldo will sign a four-year deal that includes a yearly salary of around €30m ($35 million), according to The Guardian.
Manchester United chose not to sign Ronaldo due to their interest in his Real Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale.
Juventus shares popped after it was reported that the side is close to signing Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo for €100 million ($117 million).
