Here is Ronaldo’s farewell letter in full as published on the club’s official website and translated from Spanish into English:

“These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life. 
I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received. 
However, I believe that the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me. 
They have been absolutely wonderful for 9 years. They have been 9 unique years. It has been an exciting time for me, full of consideration but also hard because Real Madrid is of a very high demand, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way. 
I have had fabulous teammates in the field and in the dressing room, I have felt the warmth of an incredible crowd and together we have won 3 Champions in a row and 4 Champions in 5 years. And with them also, on an individual level, I have the satisfaction of having won 4 Gold Balls and 3 Gold Boots. All during my time in this immense and extraordinary club.
Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thanks to the club, the President, the directors, my colleagues, all the technicians, doctors, physios and incredible workers that make everything work and that are pending every detail tirelessly. 
Thank you infinitely once more to our fans and thanks also to Spanish Football. During these 9 exciting years I have had great players in front of me. My respect and my recognition for all of them. 
I have reflected a lot and I know that the time has come for a new cycle. I'm leaving but this shirt, this shield and the Santiago Bernabéu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am.
Thanks to all and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium 9 years ago: Hala Madrid!"

CR7 is a very clever person off the field. He chose to join the Old Lady because he know that he will dominate Serie A. Juve is the only team there. No other team comes closer to them and they always qualify for UEFA. And always make it to the knock out stages, that is why he is joining them instead of going back to EPL as he knows that in EPL there are no walk overs. Clever move indeed and he is going to break records there. He will do so easy.

That's why Serie A is going to be shown on our big screens it's because of his transfer to Juventus. Television in broadcasting soccer wouldn't be da same without dis aunt of diving. Laliga won't be da same without you. No doubt u r a star bt errrr....

Wish I couldn't even finish reading this final goodbye message, mara this guy?? I have always been thinking it was just a publicity stunt damn I was wrong. I wonder what happened at Madrid. There must be something or it has to do with Zidane's departure? Anyway good luck on your future endeavors CR7, your admiration was engraft ed in my soul. Fare thee well!!!
