    Some sources close to the Italian giants rate chances of the blockbuster move happening as high as 95 per cent

    Juventus are increasingly confident of pulling off a stunning swoop for Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Ronaldo is ready to accept the Italian champions’ eye-watering £26.5million-a-year contract, taking him up to the age of 37.

    Their offer is an increase on the 33-year-old’s current £18.5m-a-year Real Madrid deal that which runs until 2021.

    Juve are now working on a transfer-fee package to tempt Real Madrid. He has a €1bn buyout clause but also a separate agreement in his deal allowing him to leave if a suitable offer is made.

    With Ronaldo's age, Juventus believe a figure of around €100m (£88m) could be enough.

    The Portuguese superstar's unrest at the Bernabeu and the fact they have agreed terms with him have left Juventus almost certain Ronaldo will be playing in Turin next season.

    Some sources close to the Turin club rate the chances as high as 95 per cent.

    But they are wary that Ronaldo’s super-agent Jorge Mendes is hoping an auction kicks off for his biggest client and waiting to see if former club Manchester United or long-time admirers Paris Saint-Germain firm up their interest.

    They will also know that this is not the first time Ronaldo has threatened to leave Madrid, who he joined in 2009 for a then world record £80m from Man United, only to change his mind and stay.

    Ronaldo cast doubt over his Bernabeu future in the wake of their 3-1 Champions League final win over Liverpool in May.

    He hinted he would be leaving this summer when he said: “It was very nice to be at Real Madrid. In the coming days I will give a response to the fans, who have always been at my side.”

    He later tried to backtrack, but Juve have received enough encouragement to work on what would be a stunning transfer.

    The fact Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Neymar of PSG are paid more than Ronaldo is at the heart of his unhappiness.

    His last contract, signed in 2016, made him the best paid player in the world but he has since been overtaken by Messi and Neymar following his world record £200m move from Barca to the French giants last summer.

    Cristiano Ronaldo to join Juventus from Real Madrid for £105m

    Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to move to Juventus after nine years at Real Madrid, the La Liga side have confirmed.

    The fee for the five time Ballon d'Or winner is in the region of £105m, according to Sky sources, and he is due to undergo a medical with the Italian champions next week.

    A statement from Real Madrid on their official website said the Portuguese forward had asked to leave the club.

    It read: "In response to the will and request expressed by the player Cristiano Ronaldo, he has agreed to transfer to Juventus.

    "Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proved to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the brightest times in the history of our club and world football.

    "Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement.

    "For Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of his great symbols and a unique reference for the next generations. Real Madrid will always be your home."

    Sky Sports reported earlier on Tuesday that Juventus president Andrea Agnelli was at Ronaldo's hotel in Greece to discuss the move.

    The player's agent Jorge Mendes was understood to be meeting Real Madrid at the same time.

    Ronaldo departs Real as the club's all-time top scorer, with an extraordinary 451 goals in 438 games.

    He won four Champions Leagues, two La Liga titles and two Copa del Reys during his time at the Bernabeu.

    In a letter posted on Real's website, Ronaldo confirmed he had asked to move on as "the time has come for a new cycle".

    He also said the time he spent in the Spanish capital, following his then world-record £80m move from Manchester United, was "possibly the happiest of my life".

    Cristiano Ronaldo's statement in full
    These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life.

    I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.

    However, I believe that the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me.

    They have been absolutely wonderful for nine years. They have been nine unique years. It has been an exciting time for me, full of consideration but also hard because Real Madrid is of a very high demand, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way.

    I have had fabulous teammates in the field and in the dressing room, I have felt the warmth of an incredible crowd and together we have won three Champions in a row and four Champions in five years. And with them also, on an individual level, I have the satisfaction of having won four Gold Balls and three Gold Boots. All during my time in this immense and extraordinary club.

    Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thanks to the club, the President, the directors, my colleagues, all the technicians, doctors, physios and incredible workers that make everything work and that are pending every detail tirelessly.

    Thank you infinitely once more to our fans and thanks also to Spanish Football. During these nine exciting years I have had great players in front of me. My respect and my recognition for all of them.

    I have reflected a lot and I know that the time has come for a new cycle. I'm leaving but this shirt, this shield and the Santiago Bernabéu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am.

    Thanks to all and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago: Hala Madrid!
