Sampdoria Sign Ronaldo & Takes a Dig at rivals, Juventus

Juventus have been mocked by Sampdoria after their Serie A rivals landed themselves a Ronaldo of their own.

The Turin giants pulled off the signing of the summer when luring five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo away from Real Madrid in a €100 million (£88m/$117m) deal.

Understandably, that agreement was greeted by plenty of fanfare, with Juve getting the ball rolling on social media.

Cristiano will, however, not be the only Ronaldo turning out in Serie A during the 2018-19 campaign.

Over in Genoa, Sampdoria have snapped up England U21 international Ronaldo Vieira.

The 20-year-old Guinea Bissau-born midfielder has moved to Italy on a five-year deal from Leeds United.

He has already been welcomed into the first-team ranks by Sampdoria, but the club could not resist having a dig at their domestic rivals when breaking official confirmation of the deal.
