Barcelona set their sights on Eden Hazard

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos had a message for superstar Cristiano Ronaldo after his €105 million (R1.65 billion) move to Juventus was confirmed on Tuesday.

Ronaldo won four Champions League titles in five years, and was awarded the Ballon d'Or, or Player of the Year award, on four occasions.

"But I think the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that's why I asked the club to accept to transfer me".

According to newspaper reports, Perez, the Real Madrid president, has already reserved the No. 7 shirt for Chelsea's Eden Hazard and even allocated him the same parking spot number at the club's Ciudad training complex. "Apart from the titles he has lifted, the honours secured and the on-field achievements during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been a role model in terms of commitment, hard work, responsibility, talent and self-improvement".

Back in April, after Ronaldo's stunning overhead-kick goal against Juve was greeted with a standing ovation in Turin, nobody could possibly have envisaged the 33-year-old signing for the Old Lady just three months later.

He may be getting on, but the deal makes Ronaldo the fourth most expensive footballer of all time, and nearly triples the record fee for a player in his 30s.

"Marco does not move, he stays at Real Madrid", Gaggioli told Calcio Mercato. And this last fact is what may have made him head for the shores of Italy.

For the moment, it is unclear just who will replace Ronaldo in the squad this summer, but everything points to Chelsea and Belgium star Eden Hazard, who has always been a target for the club.

Not only is his contract set to expire in 2020, the Blues will not play UEFA Champions League football this season and there's continued uncertainty as to who will be the manager at Stamford Bridge in 2018-19. Both players pushing each other to become better than they otherwise could have been.
