Juventus had shelled out £100m to bring Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin from Real Madrid.
Ronaldo has shown little sign of letting up in recent years, top-scoring in Real’s victorious Champions League campaign last season with 15 strikes, and recently finding the net four times in Russian Federation during the World Cup.
After completing his move from Real Madrid to Juventus, Ronaldo remarked that most players his age move to China or the United States to make more money.
Los Blancos are now linked with the teammate of Neymar Edinson Cavani as a suitable replacement for Ronaldo.
That’s because Fiat’s main investors, the Agnelli family – who also control Juventus – funded the £99m that saw Ronaldo join the Italian champions earlier this month.
Ronaldo looked at ease as he was put through a series of tests before his sensational £100million switch from Real Madrid to the Serie A giants was confirmed – and now we know why.
“He’s a top player, he’ll make the difference and we’ll see something attractive”. The Uruguayan worldwide is in fine for both his club and country this year helping Uruguay to reach Quarter-final of World cup in Russian Federation. The striker also helped the club to four Champions League titles in the last five seasons, scoring three times against Juventus in the quarter-finals last term.
Pirlo was brilliant from 31-35.
Real Madrid are thought to be closing in on a £31m deal to sign the 27-year-old in the summer transfer window to replace Costa Rica worldwide Keylor Navas.
If Pirlo is anything to go by the next four years of Ronaldo in Italy could be a lot of fun.
