While it was thought that it would be impossible for an Italian club to sign one of the greatest players from Real Madrid like Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus here is making an exception.
Real Madrid has agreed to the astounding deal of £88.3m for Ronaldo. It came as a shocker to many that one of the most celebrated players of Madrid would be leaving for one of Europe’s other great clubs.
The highest goalscorer in the Champions League and one of its most decorated players with five Champions League titles, Ronaldo seems to have it all. This can ensure Juventus some astonishing scores in Serie-A as well as other European leagues, including Champions League. His career journey from Sporting CP to Juventus has been an astounding one, which is celebrated by millions. So, today, we are here with the transfer history of CR7.
Sporting CP (July 1, 1997- Aug 12, 2003)
A son of a kit man, Ronaldo played for Andorinha, an amateur team from 1992 to 1995 and later spent two years with Nacional. It was only in 1997 that he signed with Sporting CP for a fee of £1,500. Impressed by his dribbling, he was promoted from Sporting’s youth team at the age of 16 by the first-team manager, László Bölöni. Playing for club's under-16, 17 & 18 teams, the B team, and the first team, he became the first to play for all the teams in the same season.
Sporting CP to Manchester United (Aug 12, 2003 - Jul 1, 2009)
Ronaldo’s transfer to Manchester United before the 2003–04 season with a fee of £12.24 million made him the most expensive teenage player in English football history. During his six years tenure in United, he earned several accolades, including Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year.
Man United to Real Madrid (July 1, 2009 - Jul 10, 2018)
Prior to the 2009–10 season, Ronaldo transferred to Real Madrid for the fee of £84.60 million which made him the subject of the most expensive football transfer in 2009. Scoring in each of his first four league fixtures with the club, he became the first Madrid player to do so. During his eight years in Madrid, he has won four Ballon d'Or making himself only the second player to win five Ballon d'Ors. Ronaldo is the all-time top-scorer of Real Madrid with a total of 741 goals.
Real Madrid to Juventus (July 10, 2018 - present)
