That evening, the last time he was in Turin, Ronaldo was genuinely moved by the tributes paid by the juventini.
Ronaldo won two La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns with Real after joining from Manchester United in 2009 for a then world-record fee of £80 million (US$94 million, RM428 million).
But Los Blancos will waste little time in finding someone to step into the sizeable boots left vacant by Ronaldo's €100million move to Serie A champions Juventus.
With Mbappe perhaps growing unhappy playing alongside Neymar, could the young playmaker push a move to Real Madrid?
Prince Louis christening: George and Charlotte seen with brother for first time
It may have been her baby brother's christening but - once again- Princess Charlotte was the star of the show. Her majesty the Queen was also in attendance dressed as stylishly as she always does in strong bold colours.
But in his nine years there Ronaldo became the club's leading scorer by bagging 450 goals in just 438 games.
As GCT reported earlier, global soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is enjoying a holiday in Greece with his partner and son while awaiting news as to which football club he will be playing for in the future.
"It is unacceptable that, while for years you have continued to ask FCA [Fiat Chrysler Automobiles] and CNHI [Case and New Holland Industrial] workers to make enormous sacrifices on an economic level, the company spends hundreds of millions of euros on the purchase of a footballer", a statement read.
I think it's a big challenge for him but he's going to a huge club. Also the UEFA Champions League's all-time top scorer, Ronaldo earned $US61 million in salary and bonuses a year ago, plus an extra $US47 million via endorsements, according to Forbes, making him the third-highest paid athlete in the world behind FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi and American boxer Floyd Mayweather. All during my time in this vast and extraordinary club. You have been an example in every way.

"I thank Marotta for his professionalism and Alesandro Proto for having found the right home, because for Cristiano it is very important to have a great time with his family".
I have thought a lot and I know that the moment has come for a new cycle. I'm leaving but this shirt, this badge and the Santiago Bernabeu but they will continue to always feel part of me wherever I am.
Ronaldo's exit has sparked anxiety among Real Madrid's fan-base, which is wondering how their team will replace the greatest player of the modern era.
What many are wondering is what to expect from the 33-year-old Ronaldo when he arrives at Juventus in August. We wish the colossal forward, best of luck for his future.
