Italian media was bubbling with enthusiasm Wednesday after Serie A club Juventus announced the 100 million euro ($117 million) "deal of the century" and wrestled superstar Cristiano Ronaldo from European champions Real Madrid.La Repubblica breaks down the cost of the deal to Juventus as 100 million euros going to Real Madrid, a 5 million euro "solidarity contribution" paid to FIFA and 12 million "incidental costs".
