>> He may have left the World Cup empty-handed, but what Cristiano Ronaldo does now have is a new job. The five-time World Player of the Year is leaving Spain's Real Madrid for Italian champions Juventus. On a four year contract for $100 million euros, or $117 million. It's a much-anticipated deal, the Portugal forward had threatened to leave on several occasions.
And reports emerged last year that Ronaldo was upset with Real Madrid's president in a dispute over pay. His move signals the end of nine years with the Spanish giants, a period that was littered with goals and trophies. Ronaldo is the Spanish club's all-time top scorer, with 451 goals.
He also won two La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies with the club. And he's been the top scorer in the Champions League for the past six seasons. Juventus will be hoping he brings some of that straight rate to them. Though they've had a stranglehold on the Italian title since 2012, the club hasn't won Europe's top price since 1996
