I’m a proud Juventus player – Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo was in Turin on Monday for a medical test and press conference that completed his transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus.

The Portugal international footballer joined Juve for a whopping €100 million after the Italian Serie A Champions signed agreements with Los Blancos last week.

His words: ‘There’s nothing to regret about leaving the Santiago Bernabue. I’m not sad at all.

‘Juventus is a big club and with all due respect, players at this stage of my career usually go to Qatar or China, so I’m grateful to be here.

‘I’m proud they showed interest in me…My dream is to take them to an even higher level.’

Talking about the long-lasting rivalry between Messi and Ronaldo, the Portuguese football star said he has no rivals because players compete for their different clubs as well as fight for individual and team records.

‘That is what I’m going to do here,’ he told Goal.com, ‘and in the end we will reflect on who the cap fits.’

Ronaldo became the world’s most expensive player when he joined Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009.

After completing his tests, Ronaldo walked out of the club’s medical center to greet supporters waiting at the Turin Stadium. Later on Monday, Juventus management officially presented their new acquisition and the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner expressed joy and gratitude for the chance to face new challenges with the Old Lady.
