Juventus have presented Cristiano Ronaldo to fans in Turin, after signing the Portuguese star from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Ronaldo, 33, has signed a four-year contract with the Italian champions for €100 million ($117 million), having spent nine years with Real, a period in which he won the Champions League title four times.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner recently appeared at the World Cup in Russia, where he scored four goals in his team’s run to the last 16 stage.

Three of those goals came in a thrilling 3-3 opening game draw against Spain, while a further strike against Morocco moved Ronaldo on to 85 goals for Portugal – a record for a European at international level, ahead of Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskas on 84 goals.

Ronaldo’s transfer to Juve is a record for Italian football, and eclipses the €90 million the Turin team paid for Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain in 2016.
