Cristiano Ronaldo sealed a mega-money move to Juventus from Real Madrid on Tuesday and after he starred for his country at the World Cup Betway don't expect it to be a backward step for the Portuguese superstar.

Ronaldo's four appearances at Russia 2018 took his tally at World Cup finals to a record high of 17, and the firm go 4-6 that he adds to that at Qatar 2022 despite the fact that he will be 37.

Ronaldo left Russia with his head held high despite Portugal's failure to get past the round of 16 following their 2-1 defeat to Uruguay.

Portugal's all-time leading scorer bagged four goals in the tournament - including a hat-trick against Spain - to take his tally to 85 and he has also made the most appearances for his country with 154 caps. 

Ronaldo won the Champions League for Real Madrid in May and Betway are expecting more success in 2018 for the new Juventus star.

It's 4-9 he wins a sixth Ballon d'Or, while he is 8-11 to finish his first season in Serie A as the leading goalscorer and 10-1 to bag a hat-trick on his debut for the Italian champions.

Ronaldo's arrival at huge expense is likely to prompt several exits from the Old Lady and striker Gonzalo Higuain is one player expected to make way.

Higuain, who was on duty with Argentina in Russia, is just 8-11 to pitch up at Chelsea during the summer to team up once again with incoming coach Maurizio Sarri. The pair were together at Napoli between 2015 and 2016.

Eden Hazard has just finished World Cup duty following Belgium's 1-0 defeat to France in the semi-finals on Tuesday and he is expected to be the man to replace Ronaldo at Real Madrid.

Hazard has long been linked with a move to the Bernabeu and he is 10-11 with Betway to fill the void left by Ronaldo, while Coral go 5-4 that Hazard leaves Chelsea for Los Blancos this summer.

Paddy Power suspended betting on Xherdan Shaqiri moving to Liverpool following reports that the Stoke man - a representative for Switzerland in the World Cup - was in talks about a move to Anfield.
