A former Juventus striker, Paolo Rossi, has said that Cristiano Ronaldo would make Real Madrid regret selling him to Juventus.
The former Madrid superstar was pictured on Monday in Juventus training kit for the first time as his move from Real Madrid edges closer to completion.
The Portugal captain flew into Turin yesterday evening as Juventus geared up to present him as their new £88m (€100m) signing.
Speaking on the arrival of the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner, former Juventus striker, Paolo Rossi said Ronaldo will make Real regret selling him to the Serie giants.
“With Ronaldo, Juve have everything to win the Champions League, and those who have doubts considering his age [need to] go to see some of his last matches for Real,” he told reporters.
“Ronaldo has a player’s body of 27-28 years. First, he has reduced his range of action and he has learned to distribute his energies to the best, now he comes to the right shot with the right strength, a nightmare for his opponents.
“Plus Cristiano has not chosen Italy to be a luxury retiree. He will play every game to show Florentino Perez what a mistake Real have made not to treat him as the strongest player in the world. Motivations do not age.”
