    • Cristiano Ronaldo's shocking decision to leave Real Madrid for Juventus is set to send shockwaves across the soccer world.
    • Real Madrid is now left with a huge offensive hole to fill and plenty of money to fill it, and will in all likelihood soon find yet another prominent forward to step into Ronaldo's role.
