Cristiano Ronaldo has arrived in Turin to finalise his sensational transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus, the Italian giants confirmed.
The striker agreed terms last week over a €100 million (£88m/$117m) switch to Serie A , a move that shook the world of football in the middle of the World Cup.
Under the deal, Ronaldo will receive a bumper €30 million (£26.5m/$35m) a season contract that will run for the next four years.
And, ahead of an expected presentation this week as Juve’s latest summer signing, he is now in Turin to complete the formalities of the transfer.
Ronaldo will undergo his medical on Monday before being introduced to the world as a Juventus player.
On Sunday he was snapped landing at nearby Caselle airport in the company of partner Georgina Rodriguez, an image that was shared by the Old Lady on social networks.
“Look who has just arrived at Caselle,” was the message posted on the club’s Twitter account.

Ronaldo moves to Serie A after nine trophy and record-laden seasons at Madrid, where he arrived in turn from Manchester United in 2009.
The Portugal star lifted an incredible four Champions League trophies with the Merengue, including three in the last three seasons.
Madrid also took the Liga title twice during his time at the club, while Ronaldo was honoured with four Ballon d’Or awards.
In total the striker smashed 450 goals in 438 official Madrid games, a strike-rate of over a goal a game and a mark that establishes him as the highest scorer in Blancos history.
