New Juventus signing Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal arrives at Juventus J Medical in Turin, Italy, on Monday. He then appeared before the media later that day. I am here because I want a challenge.

However, they have not won the Champions League since 1996, losing on their past five appearances in the final.

"I'm a person who likes to think about the present", he said. "This is an option".

Ronaldo will apparently begin training with the Serie A side on the 30th of July with the beginning of Juve's league campaign set to begin on August 12. For this season I am so grateful for the option that Juventus gave me. "I hope I can be the lucky star of this club but we will see what happens".

Ronaldo's signature cost Juventus €105 million, the most the Bianconeri have ever spent on a player. But the Portuguese confirmed that Juventus were the only club in the running.

"It's not true. I'm very happy with his choice". In fact, there are quite a few others, including Italy's Paolo Maldini.

Social media has hailed Grabar-Kitarovic as the flawless example to young people on how to be gracious in defeat. Croatia may have lost but the fearless team and their endearing president will live on in public consciousness.

Usually when football megastar Cristiano Ronaldo makes it into the automotive news, he's either bought a new Bugatti, or he's crashed a Ferrari into the tunnels below the Manchester Airport runways.

Speaking at a news conference, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor insisted it was the challenge of performing for another European heavyweight that persuaded him to end nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu - a more attractive prospect than heading for the Chinese Super League or Qatar. Anyone associated with the Ronaldo brand gets huge rewards both on and off the pitch and with his exit from Spain goes a veritable source of income and brand exposure for Real Madrid.

"I will try and show I am a top player".

"It was a good challenge against Messi, you all enjoyed it and it was interesting".

The signing of Ronaldo has given all of Italian football a boost, and could have a major impact on Italian football.

But Juventus, the Italian club that just paid Real Madrid €105 million for the 33-year-old, is not buying just any sportsman.
