Goal understands that the Portugal worldwide has agreed a deal to move to the Serie A giants, with Ronaldo set to sign a four-year contract worth €30 million (£26.5m/$35m) per season.

Ronaldo will sign a four-year deal that includes a yearly salary of around €30m ($35 million), according to The Guardian.

Real paid tribute to Ronaldo in a lengthy statement on their website and said the player had asked to be transferred.

Jeep gave every member of Juventus a new Grand Cherokee Summit a few years ago, but that might be too mundane for someone like Ronaldo, who spends most of his time on Instagram in high performance machines like Lamborghinis and Bugattis.

It's a huge move that modifies the landscape of European soccer, moving Real Madrid from a top-tier Champions League contender to one with huge question marks up top.

The Serie A champions swooped to sign the Portugal captain after he indicated that he was considering leaving Madrid after their Champions League final win in May.

But before the move can be announced, Real want to have a deal already done for Ronaldo's replacement.

Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United and was the Spanish club's all-time leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 matches.

And the man himself declared (h/t Sky Sports): "I believe the time has come to open a new stage in my life, and that is why I asked the club to accept the club transfer me".

Los Blancos are reported as having accepted an offer for their star ahead of what could be one of football's greatest coups - even at the player's age - and he is expected to arrive in Turin very soon. On an individual basis, in the Real Madrid jersey he has won four Ballon d'Ors, two (Fifa's) The Best, and three Gold Boots, among many other awards.

Real are keen on reshaping their team under new manager Julen Lopetegui and the 33-time La Liga winners have also been linked with a move for Paris St-Germain's 26-year-old Brazil forward Neymar. Ronaldo scored four goals in his four games at the tournament.
