Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid for Juventus.

Juventus's online shop went down on Wednesday just hours after the Italian club released its new line of jerseys emblazoned with the number seven and the name of its latest signing, Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has completed a $131.46 million transfer from Real Madrid.

The 33-year-old striker, who spent nine years with the Spanish powerhouse, is to retain the number 7 at the Turin-based side, which has won seven consecutive Serie A titles, reports Efe.

Although the Juventus online shop was down for the duration of Wednesday morning, fans were still able to go to official stores in Turin to pick up their brand new shirts.

The 33-year-old Ronaldo is currently on vacation in Greece after Portugal's elimination from the World Cup. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli flew out Tuesday to meet the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United and was the Spanish club's all-time leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 matches. He helped the club win four Champions League titles and also won the league and cup twice each.
