Fiat workers to strike over 'unacceptable' cost of Ronaldo

The European champions have been heavily linked with a move for the Brazil forward as a big-name replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Juventus in a €112 million (A$177 million) move this week.

After planting the seed several times during Real Madrid's failed bid to capture La Liga title, it became conceivable this season could be Ronaldo's last in the Spanish capital. Juventus will pay 100 million euros ($117 million) for the move and another 12 million euros in additional fees to sign the player to a four-year contract, the club said in a statement. "I am not remotely surprised".

He added: "The age is not important, I feel good, I feel motivated, excited".

"We know what he represents with his shirt and I didn't have any problem (giving it up)", Cuadrado said in a press conference in Bogota.

"I hope I will be the lucky star for this club". "In any case, it was more than just an offer and I was very interested, so I perfectly understand Ronaldo's desire to play in Serie A".

The Reds also reached the Champions League final but ended up losing to Real Madrid in Kiev.

It might be noted at this point that Ronaldo only won two league titles in nine seasons at Madrid, compared to the three he signed off from Manchester United with.

"I'm curious to see how he constantly remains at the top level and to see what keeps him going".

"But I am very ambitious and I like challenges".

Juventus hasn't won the Champions League since 1996. He is said to have cost the Italian champions £99.2m, almost £20m more than the fee Real paid to bring him to the Bernabeu from United in 2009. "I'm calm and positive because I'm sure I will be prepared for this tough new step in my career". I hope I can help them get over the line. I'm proud of being here, and i have lots of motivation for the future.
