Spanish media outlet Marca, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that Hazard could finally secure his dream move to Real Madrid in the 2018 summer transfer window. It has been an exciting time for me, but also hard because Real Madrid makes a very high demand, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way.

Agnelli's private plane landed at Kalamata airport and from there he was whisked to luxury resort Costa Navarino were the Real Madrid scorer is holidaying following Portugal's elimination from the World Cup in Russian Federation, to convince him to sign the transfer.

Real Madrid have agreed to let the Portugese player leave.

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.

But he hinted his time at the Santiago Bernabeu could be up immediately after the last Champions League success and Juventus captured his signature.

The signing also strikes a blow for the profile of Serie A against La Liga, which has now lost two of its three most famous players in the previous year after Paris St Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona for a world record fee last August.

Ronaldo wrote an open thank you letter to Real Madrid supporters that was published on the club's website.

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. It's been a pleasure to play alongside you, bicho.

Shares of the Milan-listed Juventus Football Club S.p.A. have jumped almost 25 per cent in the past week since rumours of Ronaldo's departure from Spain's Real Madrid swirled across Europe.

"Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement".

The signing broke the Serie A record, which Juventus set two years ago when it paid Napoli 90 million euros (then $99 million) for Gonzalo Higuain. He helped the Portuguese team reach the semifinals in his first World Cup in 2006.
