Eden Hazard still open to Real Madrid move

Eden Hazard still open to Real Madrid move

After nine years, 450 goals and four Champions League titles, Real Madrid paid an emotional video tribute to departing "Galactico" Cristiano Ronaldo with the simple caption "Gracias Cristiano". I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand.

The Portuguese star is possibly the most famous footballer on the planet, with five Ballon d'Or awards and five Champions League wins to his name.

"Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proved to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the brightest times in the history of our club and world football".

Whether a mooted move in the region of £88m happens remains to be seen, but either way with Ronaldo now 33-years-old, Madrid have to plan for the future.

Ronaldo ended his letter saying thanks to everyone and, of course, as he said that first time in the stadium nine years ago, 'Hala Madrid!' And with Juventus desperate to win the Champions League after so many years of dominance in Italy, he will be given the stage to help inspire them to their long-awaited third European Cup.




Journalist Guillem Balague tells Sky Sports that the four-year deal could end up costing Juventus €400m (£354m) but notes that in the two days leading up to the deal the club's stock market value rise by 20%.

After it was confirmed on Tuesday that Ronaldo had joined Juventus, speculation has already started to gather pace as to who may fill the void he'll leave. And this last fact is what may have made him head for the shores of Italy. They may not be Real or Man United, but they are not far behind, and Juve can offer Ronaldo another lorry-load of trophies over the course of his contract.

Olivier Giroud speaks glowingly of Kylian Mbappe and Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard before France and Belgium lock horns in their World Cup semifinal.

"Champions never tire of new challenges".

"They look like they are looking at other positions".
