Juventus investigated by Uefa over £99m Cristiano Ronaldo signing

CR7 effect: Juventus shirt sales more than double after Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival

Dani Alves believes Real Madrid are a more unsafe side after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

"Obviously it's going to be a little different from having such a big player there", Bale told the Daily Mail.

Ozil spent three years alongside Ronaldo in Spain and was a key member of Real's 2011/12 La Liga winning side, revealing that time with the Portuguese icon rubbed off on his own game.

Wales global Bale was sent on by then coach Zinedine Zidane with the score at 1-1 after 61 minutes, beating Liverpool keeper Loris Karius with his sensational strike three minutes later.

The run has left Juventus fans wondering if they'll ever see their team lift that famous trophy again, while the feeling persists that the Bianconeri have underachieved in Europe's top competition.

The Italians may have had a disappointing start to the season, but they have scored in both of their away games and been involved in high-scoring home draws against Atalanta (3-3) and Chievo (2-2). If you don't try things, things never happen.

'I just said, "Keep your head up",' Bale said.

"Now it's a bit more hard than it was before - before it was complicated but focused a lot on Cristiano, and now it's a bit more risky, at least [in terms of] how I see football and my concept of this game". I'd been scoring goals. "I suppose there is more of a team, more working as one unit rather than one player".

"I always try to put a bit of wobble on the ball", he points out.

"First, you take off your hat to the Madrid side who came before and I give Zidane absolute recognition on my part", said Lopetegui.

"I respect the opinion of the whole world".
