Juventus signed Ronaldo from Real Madrid last week for 112 million euros ($131.5 million), and the world player of the year penned a four-year contract with the Serie A champion.

The 33-year-old left Los Blancos as their all-time top scorer with 451 goals in all competitions and won two La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies over nine years.

"The Premier League is the most competitive league right now, but a lot of people are going to be watching Serie A for Cristiano Ronaldo and Spain for [Lionel] Messi", he told TeleRadioStereo.


Ronaldo had entered into a non-aggression pact with Real Madrid to ensure a cordial exit, which consisted of public statements released at the time his departure was announced on behalf of both parties. I am here because I want a challenge. I'm here to help Juventus make it come true. I'm excited. I'll try to do my best as always and I'm looking forward to trying to do my best and winning every title. I will work hard. "I didn't want to stay in my comfort zone after what I did for Manchester and Real Madrid".

"Welcome to him [Ronaldo], but I'm curious to see how he'll adapt to our league", said Insigne, as per Goal. "Who knows? Maybe I can do it again if everything goes well".

Ronaldo fever has swept Turin since he shocked the world by moving to Juve, and numerous youngsters who came out to greet their new hero were wearing Juventus shirts emblazoned with "Ronaldo" and the number 7, which have been selling quickly in Turin.


That pairing have just recently negotiated the biggest transfer coup in the club's history with the €105M deal to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin. 'To be welcomed this way is so rewarding and increases my motivation. "I hope I can be the lucky charm".

"I am so proud they were interested in me". I will show I am not like the others. "I am with Messi, as he can make the difference even when standing still, he nearly doesn't need physical fitness". The decision was made after a lengthy meeting with head coach Allegri and back room staff who later confirmed that there were no contractual obligations for their new star player to participate in the International Champions Cup games. "If I can play with them again, I will do".
