Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid for Juventus: Social media reacts

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.

What will CR7 look like in a Juve shirt? Here's a sneak peek.

Here's longtime teammate Sergio Ramos' message to Ronny ...

Meanwhile, Sami Khedira seems pretty excited to reunite with Ronaldo in Italy ...

As is Paulo Dybala ... Wow that is going to be a pretty scary 1-2 punch!

His sponsor Nike also wished him well.

What kind of pull does Ronaldo have? Here's the updated UCL odds from Las Vegas.

Some more words from the man of the hour himself.

And now it is official from Juventus finally. Looks like €100 million is the base fee and that Ronaldo has signed on for four seasons.

Juve legend Alessandro Del Piero has even sent out a welcome.

Marco Asensio says goodbye to his mentor.

Some more reactions from teammates.

Not everyone had praise for Cristiano though ... Roma tweeted this rather tongue-in-cheek subliminal message around the time of the announcement.

How will Ronaldo's salary stack up with the top earners in other sports? If reports about the salary are true, something like this:
