Juventus announced that Ronaldo has signed a four-year contract until the end of June 2022, and that the transfer is valued at $117 million which will be paid over two years. The team did not announce how much Ronaldo will be making on the four-year deal.
The Spanish club said in a statement that it was because of Ronaldo's intentions and desire to leave that they accepted the deal, but that Madrid will always be his home.
In accordance with the request expressed by Cristiano Ronaldo, the club has agreed to a transfer deal with Juventus.
Today, Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proven to be the best in the world and has marked one of the most brilliant careers in the history of our club and the world of football.
