Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has written a touching tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo following the forward’s decision to leave them in favour of a move to Juventus

The European champions confirmed the reports on Tuesday that they had agreed on a €112m transfer fee with Juventus for the sale of their all-time leading goalscorer.

After nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ronaldo leaves having scored 450 goals for the club in just 438 appearances.

“Cristiano, your goals, your numbers and everything we’ve won together speak for themselves,” Ramos wrote on Twitter.

“You have earned a special place in the history of Real Madrid. As Madridistas we’ll remember you always.

“It’s been a pleasure to play alongside you. Big hug and good luck!”

Ronaldo won 15 major pieces of silverware in his nine0-year stay at Real, as well as four Champions League trophies.
