Quizzed over Cristiano Ronaldo’s shocking move to Manchester United from Juventus, Arrivabene told Corriere dello Sport, “I saw a motivated Ronaldo on the first days of the pre-season.

The five-time Ballon d’ Or winner promised to replicate his Champions League domination in Turin and help Juventus win the prestigious title. The 37-year-old scored more than 100 goals playing for Juve, winning two Serie A titles and other domestic tournaments in three years.
