Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale, has wished "top guy" Cristiano Ronaldo good luck, following his move to Juventus. I'm leaving, but this shirt, this crest, and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to feels these things wherever I am.

In his nine years with Real Madrid, Ronaldo became the Spanish club 's leading goal scorer of all time, netting 451 goals in 438 appearances.

After all, his former club made enough attempts to bring him back to Old Trafford, but on one occasion at least, Man United's interest was used merely to get a better deal from Real.

The 33-year-old striker is expected to have a medical in Turin next week before being unveiled by his new side.

And Pele, who spent 18 years at Santos before ending his career with New York Cosmos, understands Ronaldo's decision.

The two clubs reached a deal reportedly worth 112 million euros (about US$132 million).

Juventus hasn't won a UEFA Champions League trophy (the equivalent of a World Cup trophy for club soccer) since 1996.


Cristiano Ronaldo has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus for the past week. "Congratulations to Juventus for achieving such a great objective".

Ronaldo is now enjoying a brief break in Greece following Portugal's exit from the World Cup, where they were defeated 2-1 by Uruguay in the round of 16.

The Portuguese laughed off Milan's attempts to lure him to Italy a few years ago, but now he has chose to chance his arm in Serie A.

Madrid have tended to get their way in the transfer window in recent years, as they have the financial muscle and pulling power to get the players they want.

Eden Hazard features on the front cover of one of the Catalan dailies this morning.

And it is that kind of ambition that will keep the Belgian in London, who wants to win the Champions League.

"They look like they are looking at other positions".
