Pele made a similar decision in 1975 when he signed with the Cosmos, where he played out the rest of his career.

Manchester [United] did not want to sell him and it was very hard.

Cristiano Ronaldo, the five-time Ballon d’Or victor, has signed a four-year deal with Italian giants Juventus.

Ronaldo too wrote a long post while quitting the club.

He leaves as Los Blancos’ all-time top scorer and a four-time Champions League victor with the team he joined in 2009. I’m here because it’s a brand new challenge for my career. “Juventus have given be an excellent opportunity and I’m really grateful for this”. I will try to show Italy that I’m still a top player.

“I don’t see players as rivals”, he added.

“They’re probably the best two players to ever play the game and I just think Messi is, in my eyes, the greatest ever”.

Italian champions Juventus have agreed to pay Real Madrid 100 million euros ($117 million) for Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It gives me so much momentum for the future”.
