“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,” Ronaldo said in a statement released on the club’s official website on Tuesday.

During his stay at the capital, the Portuguese won four Champions League titles, two La Liga, two Copa Del Rey, two Spanish Super Cups, three FIFA World Club titles, and four Ballon d’Or awards.
