Ambitious Ronaldo eyes further silverware at Juventus

Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo after winning the UEFA Champions League last May

Pele made a similar decision in 1975 when he signed with the Cosmos, where he played out the rest of his career.

Whatever the fans of his former clubs think of him, Ronaldo is a man who is squarely focused on the present and pays no attention to many aspects of his past. This is a challenge and I'm ready for it. It's a challenge, and I'm very prepared. "I need to work hard because the Champions League is not easily won".

Meanwhile, had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo said goodbye to his family and friends with a meal to celebrate his £99m move to Juventus.

For Juventus the dream is to win the Champions League and Cristiano said: "We'll do everything possible for that to happen".

"I like to have new experience".

Giggs believes Cristiano moved on from Real to one step further than Messi as the race to prove who's superior continues to provide fans with unbelievable moments. "I want to thank everyone for being here". I'm looking forward to playing.

"I'm enjoying my football, I'm still very young and I've always liked challenges".

Ronaldo, who also led Portugal to the European Championship in 2016, also won the Champions League at Manchester United as well as three English Premier Leagues and the FA Cup.

There the five-time Ballon d'Or victor will sign a four-year contract worth a reported 30 million euros a season in a deal that Italian media says will cost Juventus a total of 350 million euros.

"I didn't want to stay in my comfort zone after what I did for Manchester and Real Madrid". I appreciate that way of welcoming me to the club. One of the standout responses he gave came in response to a question about him entering what many would consider to be the twilight years of his legendary run in the sport.

Asked if I Bianconeri were the only club he'd received an offer from, the Portuguese star replied: "Yes".
