Meanwhile, Eden Hazard is now in Russian Federation for the 2018 World Cup where he will face France in the semifinal game on Tuesday night, July 10.

Italian giants Juventus have completed the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, with the former Real Madrid star heading for his first spell in Italy, after nine years in Spain.

Belgium have won all their games from the group stages before they got to the last four, and their credentials will be put to test by France who have also been superb so far at Russian Federation 2018 World Cup. He also has a nice smile.

Real are expected to launch a bid for the Belgium captain after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

Juve fans already have their Ronaldo shirts.

Ronaldo leaves Madrid after a trophy-rich spell which saw him lifting 16 titles, including four UEFA Champions Leagues - including the last three- and two league titles as well as three FIFA Club World Cups titles.

There is a compelling argument that has been made that Ronaldo is the best player in the history of soccer.

"Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you".

According to Madrid-based paper Marca, the club have a superstar-filled list of alternatives to fill the Portuguese's sizable boots - chief among those being Tottenham's Harry Kane.

'For now, it's the World Cup with Belgium. That is an eternity for a soccer-rich nation, and an immensely proud team such as Juventus.

Juventus begin their pre-season schedule with a friendly against Bayern Munich on July 25 in Philadelphia, while Ronaldo could make his competitive debut for the club the following month, with Serie A to announce its fixtures for the upcoming season on July 20. It's a ideal match for both sides.

The Portugal global scored two goals against Juventus in Real's 4-1 win in the 2017 Champions League final and earlier this season struck a jaw-dropping bicycle kick against the Italians in a 3-0 win in a quarter-final first-leg game in Turin which prompted Juve supporters to give him a standing ovation.

"These nine years have been absolutely marvellous".
