Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard Reportedly Targeted as CR7 Replacements

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard Reportedly Targeted as CR7 Replacements

After nine years, 450 goals and four Champions League titles, Real Madrid paid an emotional video tribute to departing "Galactico" Cristiano Ronaldo with the simple caption "Gracias Cristiano".

Ronaldo agreed a four-year contract worth €30 million (about £26.5 million) a year with Juventus, which will be an increase on the €21 million annual salary that he earned in Spain. I'm leaving, but this shirt, this crest, and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to feels these things wherever I am.

Reports in the Spanish media suggested that Liverpool FC could spend a club transfer record fee on the Real Madrid playmaker to fill Philippe Coutinho's void at the Anfield outfit.

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

What many people thought was the rumour of the summer has turned into the transfer of the summer after the Italian champions confirmed that a deal for the 33-year-old had been completed.

However, as the Spanish giants prepare for life under new head coach Julen Lopetegui, Ronaldo felt the time was right to move on.

President Donald Trump on Monday warned the WTO that if the USA isn't treated "properly, we will be doing something". He said: "It is an infernal logic, a unsafe logic, a logic that is in nobody's interest, starting with the U.S".

The aforementioned source is also reporting that Real won't be chasing a new goalkeeper this season either.

"Juventus want to win the Champions League, but not only that, to be recognised on the same level as the greatest clubs in the world", he told Sky Sport Italia. "My respect and gratitude goes out to them all". But he still has it in him to take another league by storm, and that is why Juventus have made such a bold move by signing him.

And the Argentine played an integral role in Juve's domestic league and cup double last season with 23 goals and seven assists in 37 appearances.

Real are expected to launch a bid for the Belgium captain after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

For the moment, it is unclear just who will replace Ronaldo in the squad this summer, but everything points to Chelsea and Belgium star Eden Hazard, who has always been a target for the club. Former Madrid team-mate Sami Khedira said he was looking forward to a reunion and other Madrid stars expressed their thanks to Ronaldo.
