Ronaldo to Juventus: Real Madrid star back in top five record transfers
Cristiano Ronaldo has secured a second entry in the world's 10 most expensive transfers by agreeing a €112million move to Juventus from Real Madrid.
Ronaldo was the world's most expensive player when he joined Madrid from Manchester United nine years ago, a deal that remains one of the highest ever paid.
Juve will pay €100m for Ronaldo with a further €12m due to be laid out by the Serie A champions in "additional costs" putting the deal fourth in the all-time list.
Neymar is also in the top 10 twice, once for his switch from Santos to Barcelona, as well as topping the pile for his world-record switch to Paris Saint-Germain.
Ronaldo's move to Juve means Romelu Lukaku's €84.8million move from Everton to Manchester United drops out.
1. NEYMAR: BARCELONA TO PSG – €222M
2. KYLIAN MBAPPE: MONACO TO PSG – €180M
