Cristiano Ronaldo 'wanted to go elsewhere' but had to settle for Juventus

The latest episode from the second series of our Transfer Talk podcast is here and it is a special looking ahead to Cristiano Ronaldo's unveiling as a Juventus player.

The 33-year-old has been enjoying a break since representing Portugal at the World Cup but the forward is now in Turin ahead of his official unveiling later on Monday.

Ronaldo needs to sort out a few issues with his transfer to Juve but also his tax problems.

Juventus will pay €100 million ($158 million) for the move and another €12 million in fees to sign the player to a four-year contract.

Numerous youngsters who came out to greet their new hero were wearing Juventus shirts emblazoned with "Ronaldo" and the number 7, which have been selling like hot cakes in the city.

It's calling for a strike at the Melfi plant in southern Italy between 10 p.m. on July 15 and 6 p.m. on July 17.

Reports claimed that Ronaldo's actual reason to leave Real Madrid was due to his unhappiness with those involved in the hierarchy of the club.

Both Fiat Chrysler (FCA) and Juventus are controlled by Exor, the investment holding of Italy's Agnelli family, which owns almost 30 percent of the carmaker and 64 percent of the soccer team.

'Serie A has become one of the most important championships in the world.

Ronaldo is the Champions League's leading goal-scorer and could help Juventus win the title that has eluded them since decades.

"Ronaldo coming will only bring good things to Juventus".

Ronaldo spent nine seasons at the Bernabeu, where he scored 311 goals in 292 league appearances for Los Blancos. He has that now that: "I did it in England, I did it in Spain, I'm going to do it in Italy... and I did it with Portugal".
