The media is swamped by stories of Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus. And why not, the news is BIG! Football fans from around the globe are now divided into 2 groups –those who support this move and those who don’t. Supporter or not, this has definitely come as a shock for everyone.
After nine seasons, 450 goals, four Champions League titles and four Ballon d’Or awards, Ronaldo has bid farewell to Real Madrid. The deal, once you factor in wages, transfer fee and commissions, will be comfortably north of $350 million. At 33, transferring from Real Madrid is a big leap, given the fact that he has 2-3 years before players conventionally retire in Football.
Ronaldo’s goodbye letter is a heart-touching one for all his fans.

The shift will always be considered as an important chapter in the history of Football and for now it has stirred conversation on the internet dividing the Football fans into two groups.
Here are some of the really interesting ones:
1. Beware Chelsea?
All in all, while the transfer of Ronaldo to Juventus may seem to be a win for Barcelona, Juventus supporters, Ronaldo fanboys, Anti-ronaldo agitators etc..
Chelsea arguably stand to be the biggest losers of all.
They just don't know yet.. It's a time bomb waiting to explode.
