And the news we have all been waiting for ... Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid and joining Juventus.

After flirting with leaving the Bernabeu over the past few years, the 33-year-old superstar has agreed to a deal with the seven-time defending Italian champions.

CR7 leaves Real Madrid after nine seasons, having won four Champions League crowns, two league titles, two Copa del Reys and four Ballon d'Or awards.

Ronaldo won 16 trophies in all with Los Blancos and scored 450 goals in a Real Madrid shirt.

On what is a massive and historic day, here is how the social media world reacted to Ronaldo's improbable transfer.

With journalists speculating and reporting the deal was done, Real Madrid made things official around 5:30 p.m. local time with this tweet.

The club then posted Cristiano's thank-you letter a few minutes later.
