Cristiano Ronaldo loves to be loved.

And the Argentine played an integral role in Juve's domestic league and cup double last season with 23 goals and seven assists in 37 appearances.

In his nine years with Real Madrid, Ronaldo became the Spanish club 's leading goal scorer of all time, netting 451 goals in 438 appearances.

Does Ronaldo still have what it takes?

What many people thought was the rumour of the summer has turned into the transfer of the summer after the Italian champions confirmed that a deal for the 33-year-old had been completed.

Indeed, Ronaldo indicated that he was considering a new challenge in May, after Real defeated Liverpool in the Champions League final. "That explains one reason why they want him", he says.

The Ronaldo narrative always suggested that he would only ever leave Real for a return to Man United.

Some fans can't believe DeMarcus Cousins' cheapo Warriors contract
For example, in 2017-18, Cousins was forced to take 55 percent of his catch-and-shoot attempts with a defender close by. All the while, Cousins will experience one of the highest-functioning organizations in sports from the inside.

He may be getting on, but the deal makes Ronaldo the fourth most expensive footballer of all time, and nearly triples the record fee for a player in his 30s.

Paris Saint-Germain have also flirted with Ronaldo, but their lavish investment in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe forced them out of the running. "That means more sponsors, more TV money and more prize money".

The serial Italian champions are a huge club with a global fan base. Fans of the lovely game knew that they'd reap the benefits of watching Messi and Ronaldo, the two best players in the world, duking it out in La Liga each season-and that's exactly what happened. Remaining at Real would have been another option, but it seems that neither Ronaldo nor the Spanish giants were amenable to that. And that's exactly what Ronaldo, the player and the brand, will bring to the Italian club.

Dybala was not told about Juve's plans to sign Ronaldo.

Ronaldo's four-year contract is expected to keep the five-time UEFA Champions League victor in Turin till 2022, with the 33-year-old Portugal global insisting that it was time for another adventure "for a new stage" in his football career.

The Portuguese star is possibly the most famous footballer on the planet, with five Ballon d'Or awards and five Champions League wins to his name. Inter Milan are back in the Champions League, and AC Milan, subject to takeover talk, will always expect to be the best in Italy. "The signing of Ronaldo is created to change that".

The Portuguese laughed off Milan's attempts to lure him to Italy a few years ago, but now he has made a decision to chance his arm in Serie A.
