After weeks of discussions and speculations, Real Madrid and Juventus agreed to a deal which will see Ronaldo join Juventus in one of the most surprising transfers in recent history.

Having said that, fans are now eagerly waiting for the time when Cristiano Ronaldo will play against Real Madrid and according to reports, the date is already out.
Ronaldo to play against Real Madrid on August 4
Cristiano Ronaldo will play against Real Madrid on August 4 in a pre-season friendly match which is just less than a month away. Juventus will hope that Ronaldo has a good rest after a grilling 2017/18 season which was then followed by a successful World Cup 2018 campaign with Portugal. Ronaldo has left Real Madrid on positive terms and will meet his former teammates with fondness when Juventus take on Real Madrid at FedExField, Washington Redskins stadium. Cristiano Ronaldo will play against Real Madrid on August 4 in the International Champions Cup clash. Real Madrid will then play against Manchester United in their next friendly which will certainly dampen the spirit of Man United fans who were hoping to see their former superstar in action against them one more time.
Ronaldo will arrive in Turin in the coming days
Ronaldo is expected to arrive in Turin in the coming days to team up with his new teammates. Juventus have done well in recent years to sign players on a free transfer or on bargain deals which made it possible for Juventus to splash beyond £100million on Ronaldo’s transfer fee. Many believe that Ronaldo’s move to Juventus is a match made in heaven given Ronaldo’s hunger to win more domestic titles which was not happening with Real Madrid and as for Juventus, their ultimate goal is to win Champions League title which Ronaldo excels at. Ronaldo has signed a 4-year deal with Juventus but it is highly unlikely that he will run the course of his contract as he is likely to play in MLS or Chinese Super League in coming seasons.
