Marca in Spain and A Bola in Portugal led their Tuesday print editions by amplifying a claim made on Spanish TV station La Sexta's "Jugones" show on Monday night that Real Madrid had agreed to sell Ronaldo to Juventus for €100 million.

The Portugal forward was reported to be on the verge of leaving last June after a news story appeared in Portuguese newspaper Record declaring he was unhappy with the club.

The Portugal worldwide is said to expect €30 million (A$47 million) per year to make the move - a figure that could rise to as high as €60 million (A$95 million) with Italian taxes.

He then converted a stoppage-time penalty in the second leg to knock the Italians out 4-3 on aggregate.

Ronaldo enjoyed an explosive start to the 2018 World Cup by scoring a hat-trick in his side's 3-3 draw with Spain, also hitting Portugal's victor in a 1-0 win over Morocco. He was shackled, however, and failed to score as Uruguay won 2-1.
