Talks between the two clubs and Ronaldo’s camp emerged early last week and have accelerated in recent days.

In an open letter to fans, Ronaldo thanked Real for his nine years spent with the La Liga giants.

“These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life.

“I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.

“However, I believe that the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me."

In a statement the Spanish club said: “Real Madrid CF communicates that, in response to the will and request expressed by the player Cristiano Ronaldo, he has agreed to transfer to Juventus FC.

“Today, Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proved to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the brightest times in the history of our club and world football.

“Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these 9 years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement.

“He has also become the top scorer in the history of Real Madrid with 451 goals in 438 games. In total 16 titles, including 4 European Cups, 3 of them consecutive and 4 in the last 5 seasons. On an individual basis, with the Real Madrid jersey he has won 4 Gold Balls, 2 The Best, and 3 Gold Boots, among many other awards.

For Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of its great symbols and a unique reference for the next generations.

“Real Madrid will always be your home.”

Juventus are understood to have had a £105m offer for Ronaldo accepted by Real Madrid.

The Portugal international, who has only just returned from competing in the World Cup, will sign a four-year contract at the Turin club.

He will be paid a staggering £106m over the duration of his deal, which is being sponsored in part by car company FIAT.
