Cristiano Ronaldo is incredibly, outrageously fit. And not in the ‘oh babe, you’re so peng’ kinda way. I mean physically he is, arguably, one of the most athletic and in-shape people on the planet.
The 33-year-old has recently been enjoying a well-deserved post-season and post-World Cup break break in Greece with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and their young son, Cristiano Jr.
According to ESPN, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli journeyed to Greece to discuss the €100 million plus transfer deal with Ronaldo face-to-face at his hotel.
In the meantime, he’s been smashing other records.
It has been revealed the Euro 2016 champion’s physical state has been compared to that of a 20-year-old after results from a recent medical show he has 7% body fat and a superb 50% muscle mass.
On top of that, the former Real Madrid forward ran 33.98km at the World Cup in Russia, faster than any other player.

Speculations about Ronaldo’s future in the Spanish capital gained momentum in May 2018, when he spoke about his time at the club in the past tense following their 3-1 victory over Liverpool in the 2018 Champions League Final.
This high profile transfer has set a new club record signing for Juventus, eclipsing their €90m acquisition of Gonzalo Higuain.
Ronaldo will be given a basic annual salary of €30m, which is quite a large leap from the €23.6 million he earned while at Real Madrid, but not entirely insane when you consider how many shirts the man can sell on top of the being really good at football.
Speaking of, here’s what his former club had to say about his departure:
Real Madrid CF communicates that, in response to the will and request expressed by the player Cristiano Ronaldo, he has agreed to transfer to Juventus FC.
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 brightest times in the history of our club and world football.
Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these 9 years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement.
He has also become the top scorer in the history of Real Madrid with 451 goals in 438 games. In total 16 titles, including 4 European Cups, 3 of them consecutive and 4 in the last 5 seasons. On an individual basis, with the Real Madrid jersey he has won 4 Gold Balls, 2 The Best, and 3 Gold Boots, among many other awards.
For Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of his great symbols and a unique reference for the next generations.
Real Madrid will always be your home.
A bit sentimental. I doubt Ronaldo will be phased by ‘miss you x’ text in statement form.
The striker will be earning £26,545,154 a year at Juventus. That’s £2,212,096 per month.
Over the next four years, for example, he will amass (if he doesn’t go spending it all!!) £106,180,616.
£510,483 a week folks. You know when your kids start acting up and saying they don’t wanna go to football practice? Force them. One day you’ll thank me.
