Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has slammed the football club's decision to sell Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo for €112m to Juventus.
The Turin club are totally dominant in Italian football having won seven consecutive Serie A titles and four consecutive league and cup doubles. "If things were to go well, I might have the chance to win it, but it is not something that I lose sleep over". Juve have gone close a few times in recent years but finals are always unpredictable.
Both Juventus and Fiat are controlled by the Agnelli family through their holding company and a deal was struck for the vehicle company to help fund the £100m move for the 33-year-old.
Ronaldo who had been holidaying in Greece after exiting the World Cup, returned to Madrid on Friday to say goodbyes to friends and staff of Real Madrid.
It is an opportunity Ronaldo is relishing.
"I said: "fine, I understand, there are a lot of dreams but not many of them come true". Finally, the man from Madeira wanted to thank Juve supporters and in particular those who applauded his overhead kick goal against their team in the Champions League.
Juventus fans have trooped out in their numbers to show their support to buy Cristiano Ronaldo's new shirt. He has only won three league titles, one at Manchester United and two at Real Madrid, which given his career has now spanned 16 years, is a disappointing return. I am very ambitious and I like challenges. Manchester [United] did not want to sell him and it was very hard. I'm going to work hard in training. 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.
