Juventus have confirmed the signing of Cristiano Ronadlo from Real Madrid, but already the question is who will replace him in the Spanish capital.

The 33-year-old superstar has penned a four-year deal with the Italian champions, ending his nine-year stay with Madrid.

Juventus confirmed they had agreed a fee of just under £100million with Real, and he is now contracted to them until 2022.

So talk has turned to who might come in, with Eden Hazard, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe all strongly linked.

In the last week Real have denied deals are in place for Neymar and Mbappe, whilst Chelsea star Hazard has long been linked.

Bookmakers make Hazard favourite to come in, but the Paris Saint German are also fancied to switch.

Aex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s all change in the Spanish capital this summer and with Ronaldo seemingly on his way out, we’re expecting a handful of blockbuster names to move to the Bernabeu.”
