Italian football heavyweights Juventus transferred Real Madrid's Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday evening, Anadolu Agency reports.

Juventus said on its website that the 33-year-old forward inked a four-year contract with Juventus set to run through 2022.

"He’s called Cristiano Ronaldo and he’s now officially a Bianconero!" the club said, as Ronaldo officially became a Juventus player after signing the contract.

Juventus also said in a press release that the €100 million ($117.4 million) transfer fee can be paid in two fiscal years.

Under the agreement between the clubs, an additional €12 million ($14 million) fee will reportedly be paid as well.

Spanish giants Real Madrid announced earlier Monday that the club has agreed to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

"Today Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proved to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the most brilliant times in the history of our club and world football," the club said in a statement on Tuesday evening.
