Factory workers strike over Juventus' $177 million Ronaldo signing

Factory workers strike over Juventus' $177 million Ronaldo signing

On Instagram, Cuadrado said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive blessings'.

Ronaldo enjoyed nine highly illustrious campaigns at Real Madrid, winning 15 titles while also scoring 450 goals for the club during the period.

Cuadrado, 30, joined Juventus on loan from Chelsea in 2016 and was issued with No 16 before switching to No 7 when his transfer was made permanent last summer.

A new challenge beckons Cristiano Ronaldo, and it will be interesting to see if he can guide Juventus to unprecedented success in the coming seasons, just as he did with Real Madrid and Manchester United. Also the UEFA Champions League's all-time top scorer, Ronaldo earned $US61 million in salary and bonuses previous year, plus an extra $US47 million via endorsements, according to Forbes, making him the third-highest paid athlete in the world behind FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi and American boxer Floyd Mayweather.

But he was unhappy with the way the tax authorities treated him in Spain.

Going back to those same people and asking them to accept that after years of reporting a profit on the balance sheet - thanks to meticulous planning and careful, organic growth - Juve would now go into the red.

Ronaldo finished his Real Madrid career with a club record 450 goals.

According to a poll run by Spanish publication Marca, the man who can fill Ronaldo's boots is Kylian Mbappe.

Lopetegui likes to play 4-3-3 and if Neymar is signed as a replacement for Ronaldo, it would be a like-for-like swap with the Brazilian on the lett side of Real Madrid's three-man forward line. You are and will remain number one. He's leaving a club that has won the last three Champions Leagues.

Portugal was eliminated by Uruguay in the round of 16 of this year's tournament in Russian Federation.

"It came to a head several months ago, when Cristiano was telling Real Madrid time and time again that he wasn't particularly happy there", Hunter said. "Good luck in your new stage!"
