Reports: CR7 set for Juventus

Multiple reports state that Real Madrid have accepted Juventus’ €100m bid for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Bianconeri appear to be on the verge of pulling off a sensational move for the Portuguese superstar, who has already agreed a €30m contract.

It’s thought some of that fee will be paid through sponsorships by Juve’s parent company Exor, which owns the likes of FIAT and Ferrari.

The only sticking point was whether Los Merengues would stick to a gentleman’s agreement to accept €100m, rather than CR7’s €1bn release clause.

Now El Chiringuito is reporting that Juventus’ offer has been accepted, and Ronaldo will leave Real Madrid.

Both Juve President Andrea Agnelli and the player himself are in Greece today, while Jorge Mendes is expected to fly out later today.

Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio is also reporting that a €100m offer will be acceptable to the Spanish side, after which it's simply a matter of time before Ronaldo arrives in Turin.

The Sky Italia journalist reports that Giuseppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, Juve's general manager and sporting director, are in Milan awaiting the go-ahead from Mendes.

Spanish newspaper Marca is also reporting that an offer has been accepted, and Agnelli has been given permission to speak to Ronaldo.
