Ronaldo Elevates Juve’s Status in Europe

TURIN, NNC - Cristiano Ronaldo is believed to be able to elevate Juventus' rank among the elite clubs of Europe. Therefore, the price of 100 million euros that must be spent by Juve to bring Ronaldo from Madrid is deemed to be logical based on the impact given.

Ronaldo is considered the best footballer in the world today, along with Lionel Messi. He is the owner of five Ballon d'Or titles and has just led Madrid to win the Champions League three times in a row. Ronaldo is also listed as the Champions League's top scorer with 120 goals.

Juventus on the other hand is just the opposite. The club was nicknamed The Old Lady for having difficulty achieving success in the Blue Continent. In the last three seasons, the Old Lady has failed twice in the Champions League final.

Juventus Vice President, Pavel Nedved is very optimistic that Ronaldo's arrival will lift Juve's prestige in Europe. He considered his team to be equal to compete with European elites now.

"Juventus' progress between big clubs in Europe has been confirmed. That we managed to bring Ronaldo to Juventus is something extraordinary," Nedved was quoted as saying by AS.

"This will give us little opportunity in the future, as well as for Italian football," he continued.

The 2018/2019 Italian League will begin this weekend. Ronaldo has the chance to make his debut against Chievo on Saturday (8/18/2018).
