Chelsea owner open to sell Hazard as Barcelona make move

Ronaldo's and Sergio Ramos&apos shirts

Madrid finished their statement by saying: "For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of our greatest symbols and a unique reference for our next generations".

His current contract expires in 2021 but Juventus are reportedly set to offer him an eye-watering $35 million-a-year wage, which would make the former Manchester United number 7 the highest-paid player in the club's history.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been tipped to rejuvenate Italian football and give Juventus an "advantage" in their bid to finally win the UEFA Champions League again.

"Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these 9 years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement".

"Juve has found a financial way to pay for his wages and fee".

Ronaldo and his entourage are believed to have agreed with Real to lower his €1 billion (R16 billion) release clause to €105 million, and the Bianconeri have now paid as much to the Spanish giants. "Real Madrid willing to let him go". OK Diario, via the Daily Express, claim that Los Blancos are "closing in on" a deal for PSG star Neymar and want to announce his signing at the same time as Ronaldo's departure, to smooth the news with the club's supporters.

"For Madrid, it would be a very big loss".

"It's my understanding that an agreement has been reached on principle involving Real Madrid and Ronaldo", Marcotti said.

Real Madrid management also considers Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski.

But before the move can be announced, Real want to have a deal already done for Ronaldo's replacement.

Chelsea may need to buckle up and rectify their managerial situation to make sure the years of Hazard speculation doesn't creep up on them at last.

Speaking after his unveiling at Sassuolo on Friday, Boateng stated that the arrival of the five-time UEFA Champions League victor will add much more value to the league.
