Cristiano Ronaldo, after completing his medical at Juventus, has met with the press and has stated that he is looking forward to a challenge with the Old Lady.
Ronaldo will be paid a reported 30 million euros a year – which is believed to be more than double what Juve paid their previous highest-paid player Gonzalo Higuain.
Juventus is one of the best teams in the world. It was a long-time decision I made. An easy decision for the size of the club and a very important step for my career,” he said.
“I’m a person who likes to think about the present. I’m still very young and I always liked the challenges, from Sporting, to Manchester and now Juventus.
“It’s a challenge, and I’m very prepared. Things will go well.”
“Players of my age usually go to other countries with all due respect. At this point in my career playing in such a big club makes me happy.
“I thank Juve for the great opportunity they have given me. ”
“I want to leave a mark in the history of Juve. I am very pleased with this challenge,” he added.
