Cristiano Ronaldo’s Shock Juventus Move Breaks the Damn Internet

Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo shocked the world by completing a $99m move to Juventus yesterday.

After nine years and a trailer load of trophies at Real Madrid, the 33-year-old decided it was time to fresh challenge.

He already hinted at the end of last season that he would be leaving the Santiago Bernabeu, but the sheer immensity of the move meant fans had to wait for it to materialize before to react to it, after all, he’d said so in the past only to stay put.

With Portugal eliminated from the World Cup at the last 16 stage following a 2-1 loss to Uruguay, Ronaldo, and his agent Jorge Mendes, decided it was time for the next big move. And lo, the formidable Portuguese is now a Juventus player!

Upon completing the deal, the five-time ballon d’Or winner reportedly told Juve boss Andrea Agnelli: “I can’t wait to start this new adventure. I’m very happy with the choice that I have made because Juventus is what I wanted.”

Rest assured he’s not the only one excited about this new phase, as social media has been set alight since the deal was announced.

Here are some of the reactions to the stunning move…
