The letter continued with Ronaldo stating that, "Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thank you to the club, the president, the director's, my colleagues, all the staff, doctors, physios and incredible people that make everything work", ending it with "Hala Madrid".

The club also released a statement saying, "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."

The statement continued to thank Ronaldo for his achievements and dedication and finished by saying "Real Madrid will always be your home."
