Ronaldo's Surprise Move To Juventus Creates a Problem for Federation Internationale de Football Association 19

The worst-kept secret in football was finally confirmed on Tuesday as Juventus announced the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid for €100m.

The multiple Ballon d'Or victor made noises to the effect that he may leave Real Madrid after nine years, following their third successive Champions League win in May.

With 3 consecutive UEFA Champions League titles, Real Madrid are undoubtedly a dominant force in Europe. There must be an element of that given Ronaldo's age, not so much because of his physical condition, which is superb, but because he has his tried-and-tested methods, and over nine years his Madrid colleagues came to know them intimately.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Juventus playmaker Paulo Dybala in recent days, while Chelsea are also thought to be interested striker Gonzalo Higuain, despite the pair's disappointing World Cup campaign with Argentina.

Real Madrid have drawn up a three-man shortlist to replace Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portugal superstar joined Juventus in a £99million deal.

"I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for these fans and for this city".

"It was very nice to be in Madrid", he said at the time, using the past tense.

"It is unacceptable that while the (owners) ask workers of FCA. for huge economic sacrifices for years, the same decide to spend hundreds of millions of euros for the purchase of a player", the USB union said in an emailed statement.

We've seen Cristiano Ronaldo threaten to leave Real Madrid on several occasions over the years.

The transfer fee alone is hefty enough, but Ronaldo has also signed a contract at the Bianconeri worth an eye-watering €30m per year.

EA Sports will have to change all of its covers and marketing materials to reflect the change of club by having Ronaldo in a Juventus shirt so it doesn't look outdated. "France didn't play at all, they defended with 11 players within 40 metres of their goal", Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois told Belgian TV channel RTBF.

They have been absolutely wonderful for nine years.

It was Cristiano Ronaldo who was the first to believe in this, the first to launch it.
