Wise move going to Serie A. Now, he can continue play at a high level until he's in his late 30s.

Ronaldo is an android.

He can play at a high level into his late 30s in any league.

this is very likely true.

vava called it way early in the season when RM started off so poorly. said that the likelihood of them rallying and winning the UCL was in the mix..

on of the best calls ever.

The rumours are that Ronaldo wanted Higuain gone as a condition of the transfer. He got along much better with Benzema than with Higgs.

Apparently, Ron chose Juve and not the other way around.

Wow.

The whole Shirt sales thing doesn't work anymore

Used to when players cost £15M

Yes their advertising stock will go up but to the tune of £190M? No.

It's a huge risk. Yes he's in good shape but he's played as much football as any 33 year old pro. Dodgy knees / joints not far away


Juventus sold 520,000 Cristiano Ronaldo shirts within the first 24 hours of him signing for the club.

An official shirt with Ronaldo on the back costs €105

Therefore the club brought in anything up to €55m through shirt sales alone within a day of the transfer.
