Marcelo bids farewell to Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo sends an emotional farewell message to Cristiano Ronaldo following his decision to join Juventus this summer.

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo has sent Cristiano Ronaldo an emotional farewell message following his decision to join Juventus this summer.

Ronaldo has put pen to paper on a four-year deal in Turin, ending his illustrious nine-year stay at the Bernabeu having established himself as arguably Madrid's greatest ever player during that time.

Marcelo played alongside Ronaldo throughout his time at the Bernabeu, with the two forming a close friendship, and the Brazilian has now paid tribute to the departing five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

"Who would say it, Cris! It's time for you to go soon. I swear I did not imagine that day would come! But nothing in this life is forever, I hope you are very happy in your new club. It has been almost 10 years at your side, 10 years of joy, good football, victories, defeats and wonderful moments!" Marcelo wrote in an Instagram post.

"I've learned a lot from you, your dedication is the strangest thing I saw in an athlete. Everything must be good for you and your beautiful family! I'm going to miss our talks before the games, when you got the results right and when before the finals you reassured us with your experience and the love you gave to the youngest ones!

"I am proud to have played with you, not because you are the best player but because of who you are. When I stop playing I will sit at the bar to have a beer, tell several stories and show all our photos. Saying goodbye, #M12"

Ronaldo will be unveiled by his new club on Monday.
