Having decided to put an end to his three-year stay in Turin, the Portuguese releases a heartfelt parting post on social media.
Cristiano Ronaldo has bid farewell to Juventus fans after his move to Manchester United was announced on Friday.
Ronaldo joined Juventus in a sensational €100 million transfer from Real Madrid back in 2018.
The footballing icon set the Serie A on fire during his three-year stay, scoring 81 league goals, winning several man-of-the-match awards, and breaking numerous records.
While unable to help the club achieve their ultimate goal of winning the Champions League, he managed to lead the Bianconeri to five titles – two Serie A, as many Supercoppa Italiana, and a Coppa Italia.
The 36-year-old is now set to retrace his footsteps to Old Trafford – a place his journey to stardom began.
“Today I depart from an amazing club, the biggest in Italy and surely one of the biggest in all of Europe.
“I gave my heart and soul for Juventus and I’ll always love the city of Turin until my final days. The “tifosi bianconeri” always respected me and I tried to thank that respect by fighting for them in every game, every season, every competition.
“In the end, we can all look back and realize that we achieved great things, not all that we wanted, but still, we wrote a pretty beautiful story together.
“I will always be one of you. You are now part of my history, as I feel that I’m part of yours. Italy, Juve, Turin, tifosi bianconeri, you’ll always be in my heart.”
