Cristiano Ronaldo has written a farewell letter to fans of Juventus following his surprise return to former club Manchester United. After making for one of this summer transfer window’s most heartbreaking football transfers, Ronaldo bids Juve fans adieu now.
In his three years with Juventus after a 2018 move, Cristiano Ronaldo scored 101 goals across 134 games.
He even helped Juventus, the Turin club, win two league titles in his three seasons there.
However, Juventus originally brought Ronaldo in to try to end the Bianconeri’s Champions League drought.
But he failed to bring them even close to that glory, with Juventus crashing out in disappointing fashion every year.
And after himself becoming disillusioned with the Bianconeri in Turin, Ronaldo opted out.
The 36-year-old informed his new Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri that he was looking for a new challenge.
And after he left Juventus’ Continassa training ground conclusively in breaking football news today, Manchester City attempted to sign him.
However, at the very last minute, Manchester United swooped in on the Portuguese forward to bring him back home.
Heartbreaking Football Transfers – Ronaldo Bids Juve Fans Adieu
12 years ago, Cristiano Ronaldo left the Red Devils for Real Madrid, whom, in turn, he left to join Juventus.
But now, after he’s left Juventus too, his career has come full circle because Manchester United confirmed his return.
On Friday, after United announced Ronaldo’s comeback to Old Trafford, the now-ex-Juventus forward posted an emotional farewell letter on Instagram.
In it, he wishes Juventus fans best of luck for the future while reflecting on a ‘pretty beautiful story together.’
Ronaldo wrote: “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.”
