Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has ended his nine-year association with Real Madrid. The former Manchester United star has put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal with Juventus.

The 33-year-old was first linked with the Bianconeri earlier in the month amid suggestions that the attacker wants a fresh challenge elsewhere.

Since then, things have flowed quickly and the Bianconeri have now wrapped up his services after agreeing on a club-record fee of nearly £100m.

The Portuguese becomes the club's seventh signing of the transfer window for Juventus and his arrival takes their spending to £195m for the summer.

Max Allegri's side are still expected to continue with their transfer business with a potential deal for Matteo Darmian planned but they may be a couple of exits along the way.

Gonzalo Higuain and Alex Sandro have been tipped to leave Turin for a combined fee of around £100m this summer as they seek to compensate for Ronaldo's arrival.
