Cristiano Ronaldo has completed a remarkable move from Juventus to Manchester United on Friday, leaving the world of football absolutely stunned. Things unfolded pretty quickly in last few hours since Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri confirmed that CR7 had indeed decided to leave the Old Lady. As the Portuguese looked set to sign for Man City, tables turned once again as the Red Devils confirmed the arrival of their former player later in the day.
However, it must be noted that things ended in a pretty good way for Ronaldo at Juventus with no love lost between the player and the club management or fans. It was being regarded as a good move for both the parties as both Juventus and CR7 get ready for a new chapter. The 36-year-old had amazing 3 years in Italy where he scored numerous goals, broke various records and won different titles with the club.

To express his gratitude towards Juventus, Ronaldo posted a heart-warming video which had some of the best moments from time he spent at the club. From the day of his announcement as a Bianconeri to scoring some mind-boggling goals, the footage just perfectly summed up Ronaldo's time in Italy.

While the video was special, it was the caption that had all the emotions. CR7 stated, "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 “tiffosi 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, tiffosi bianconeri, you’ll always be in my heart," added Ronaldo.
CR7 scored 101 goals for Juventus
