I think it's a good move.

Ronaldo gets to move to another prestigious club that's always thereabouts in the CL, prove himself in another league, and win more trophies. Juventus get one of the best players of all time, who still clearly has a lot left in the tank even at 33.

Yeah this seems to work for everyone.

- Real is now ready to move in another direction with a different, younger superstar at the helm - whoever that is (hopefully they sign Mbappe).

- Juventus gets the marketing boom for them and Serie A, plus a guy who'll put them one step above on their quest to winning the ECL.

- Ronaldo goes to a club where he'll be very favored to get internal trophies every year (not sure people realize he didn't actually win that much internally at Real) while also fighting for the ECL, allowing him to remain in the ballon d'or orbit for as long as he can score goals at a high rate. Plus it was apparently is second favorite club as a youngster.

It's been a great ride for these 9 years or so...

Blessed to have had him wear the colors of Real Madrid.

Wish him the best!

Can he win another top league/CL with a third team and cement his legacy as GOAT?

I wonder if juventus is aware that Cristiano is awaiting for the final result of a tax evasion trial in spain and that there is a 50% odds that the court will rule that he has to go to jail.

Because they are fcking dumb.They are stealing money from Messi and CR.Different amount,but same thing.Taxes about their names/brands.Only in Spain sh*t like that happens.And how many times that so called ''judge'' changed that number?Atleast 3 times from 10 mil to 30 mil.

His legacy as the GOAT is hopefully a myth and not a legacy, however yes, he can probably win the CL. Juve has come very close without him and it seems they'll be as good as they've ever been this year.

I think besides Real part of the issue with Juve's quest next year is that Barça will have a better team than last years (Coutinho, Dembele in form and whoever else comes) and Man. City will have another year under their belts.


As for the league title everything that won't be a Juventus win will be extremely disappointing and unlike in Madrid there will be huge critics and scrutiny if they somehow don't win it this year.
