Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed he dreamed of playing for Juventus when he was growing up.
The Portuguese superstar completed his surprise move this summer after a glittering spell at Real Madrid.
And he hailed the Serie A champions as he prepares to make his debut today.
“I feel great. Everything is good, the test was good, people around the stadium, the fans, the people in the training ground are very nice with me. I’m glad, I’m happy,” he told Juventus TV.
“Great club, first of all it is a great club. Since I was a kid, I looked at this team and said I hope to play there one day. Now I will play for a fantastic club, one of the biggest clubs in the world. I’m happy.
“I don’t have a precise moment when I decided. During the years, we played a few times against Juve and I had a special feeling that the Italian supporters like Cristiano.
“It’s the biggest club in Italy, one of the best in the world, so it was an easy decision, as Juve are an unbelievable club.”
