Cristiano Ronaldo asks Juventus to sign Real Madrid star

Cristiano Ronaldo asks Juventus to sign Real Madrid star

Juventus GM Beppe Marotta has revealed how they managed to land Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Ronaldo is something new, however, with the fee being paid for a 33-year-old demonstrating just how incredible this deal is.

He was once directly asked whether he would consider a move for Ronaldo and claimed it would be hard to turn down such a talent though he believes it's impossible to get him from Real. "My only feeling is of an enormous gratitude for this club, for these fans and for this city".

"I'd like to thank once again Real's president [Florentino Perez], but I had given my word to Juventus".

And Real Madrid defender Ramos was quick to pay tribute to Ronaldo after his move away from the Spanish club was confirmed on Tuesday.

Andrea Agnelli, the chairman of Juventus, flew out to Greece personally in order to meet Ronaldo and finalise the historic deal. "I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me".

Born on the Portuguese island of Madeira, where the airport is named after him, Ronaldo has had a successful career at Real Madrid, scoring 450 goals in 438 games for the club. Added to that the likelihood that he will strengthen the team, it seems plausible that they will be more successful domestically and qualify routinely for the Champions League.

Ronaldo is now on vacation in Greece following Portugal's elimination from the World Cup.

Ronaldo led Portugal to its first major title at the European Championship two years ago in France.

He scored four goals at the World Cup in Russian Federation before reigning European champions Portugal crashed out of the tournament after losing 2-1 to Uruguay in the Round of 16.
