Ryan Giggs Believes Messi Is Behind Ronaldo's Move To Italy


As Cristiano Ronaldo begins a promising new era with Juventus, a period of uncertainty starts for the team he left behind.

Part of the deal that will see Ronaldo become the most expensive signing in the history of Serie A apparently involves Fiat shouldering some of the cost, including the player's purported $35M salary, in exchange for him becoming a brand ambassador for the auto manufacturer.

Ronaldo signed a four-year deal with the Old Lady on Tuesday, bringing an end to his nine-year stint at the Bernabeu. The guys on Triple M's Rush Hour in Adelaide crunched the numbers.

Diaz added Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen is also on Barca's radar, but the Catalans believe Hazard to be a better player than the Dane and also a potentially easier signing given the current upheaval at Chelsea. Ronaldo expressed his dissatisfaction with Real on several occasions over the past few seasons. This is Cristiano Ronaldo, a global icon, who has selected Juve above all the other options he must have been given.

The Portugal worldwide scored two goals against Juventus in Real's 4-1 win in the 2017 Champions League final and earlier this season struck a jaw-dropping bicycle kick against the Italians in a 3-0 win in a quarter-final first-leg game in Turin which prompted Juve supporters to give him a standing ovation. Juventus' fans in the stadium gave him a well-deserved standing ovation for his incredible feat.

"The fans applauded him and he bowed to them".

Around the same time, his relationship with Florentino Perez, the Madrid president cooled.

Cristiano Ronaldo's exit leaves Real Madrid trying to fill a monumental goalscoring void.

I'm surprised that he would leave Real Madrid and go to Italy. Benzema's brilliant movements both on and off the ball helped players like Ronaldo find the space to unleash lethal attacks. My respect and recognition to all of them. "And the deal was struck".

Juventus have paid Real £93m for his services, but they must also pay the Manchester club for their role in helping develop the Portuguese into one the world's greatest players.
