Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo agrees to join Juventus from Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United are now not budging over former star Cristiano Ronaldo's availability despite his wish to leave Real Madrid in the current transfer window, according to reports from Italy.

Reigning World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo has signed for Italian giants Juventus, bringing to an end a trophy-laden career with Real Madrid.

In joining Juventus, Ronaldo has followed in the footsteps of former Manchester United teammate Patrice Evra, who left Old Trafford for Juventus in 2014 and enjoyed three more seasons at the top of European football.

La Gazzetta said that Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes was expected in Madrid on Tuesday when Real directors are scheduled to meet.

Ronaldo turns 34 next year, but supporters still believe he is key to Real Madrid's success, and Calderon agrees, saying he hopes current president Florentino Perez can convince him to stay.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor has been Real for nine seasons after joining from Manchester United for a then world-record fee of £80m.

Perisic was mightily unlucky not to add to his tally when his angled shot beat Pickford but cannoned off the post. Croatia have had an impressive campaign at this World Cup .

The forward has also cemented his place as Madrid's all-time leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 games. I only have feelings of enormous thanks for this club, this fanbase and this city. I can only give thanks to all of them for the love and affection that I have received.

"If Ronaldo were to leave Madrid, he would leave a gap that would be impossible to fill", he told Tuttomercato. "I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand", Ronaldo said in an open letter. But he soon toughened up and won lots of three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a Champions League title in 2008.

These nine years have been unique.

"For Real Madrid, Ronaldo will always be one of his great symbols and a unique reference for the next generations", added the Real statement. Madrid now that face the task of replacing their reliable goal machine with another reliable goal machine.

"Beyond the titles he won during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has also been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and constant improvement".
