Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to officially sign for Juventus, but his reported move led to the Serie A club's share price surging.

Ronaldo, 33, is reportedly set to make a €100million move from Real Madrid to the Italian champion. The news has led to a surge for Juve's share price, which reached its highest point since mid-February.

It has risen dramatically since reports of a move for Ronaldo started, earlier, this week. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has spent the past nine seasons at Madrid, winning four Champions League titles and two LaLiga crowns.
