Ronaldo arrives in Turin for Juventus medical

GETTYZinedine Zidane Juventus Who could sign for the club

The Argentine's old Juventus number was also an option and it is available because the man who wore No.21 last term, Benedikt Howedes, was only on loan.

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has a very interesting take on what motivated Cristiano Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid after nine years and join Juventus.

Workers at a Fiat Chrysler plant in Italy have chose to go on strike following their largest shareholder's decision to spend a whopping £99.2m for the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

The strike was called for late Sunday to early Tuesday.

One ice-cream parlour in Turin has even invented a "CR7" cone, featuring a Portuguese cherry liquor and chocolate shavings.

The strike, however, will likely have a nominal impact - the factory is one of seven plants in Italy and USB doesn't represent all of the workers there.

Both Fiat (the mainstream Italian brand arm of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) and Juventus are controlled by the Agnelli family's holding company, Exor.

"He'll definitely raise the quality of the team and I hope we can keep winning together".

That's money that could have been used for job-boosting investments like making better cars, the union said.

The Portugal global has spent the last nine years of his career at the Santiago Bernabeu but is now set to head into a novel challenge with Champions League hopefuls Juve, who are eager to get past that final hurdle in Europe.

After reaching Juve's medical centre, Ronaldo signed autographs for some of the waiting crowd.

Ronaldo has scored 120 Champions League goals, more than anyone else in the history of the competition, and won four out of the last five editions with Real. "Now we can enjoy watching him", says Mario.

According to SoyMadridista, the UEFA Champions League were prepared to offer as much as €330 million (R5.1 billion) to sign Neymar. "Now he has to repay us with interest".
