'We Would Never Spend €100m On A 33-Year-Old'

The CEO of one of the biggest teams in Europe has responded to Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus, insisting his club would never spend €100 million (R1.5 billion) on a player the age of the Portuguese.

'Messi Deserves Best Player Award More Than Ronaldo!'

Many were shocked to see Ronaldo leave Real Madrid in this transfer window, especially following the success he helped bring the club in his nine years in Spain.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, CEO of Bayern Munich, was also among those surprised to see the superstar join Juve, claiming the Bavarians would never consider buying a 33-year-old for €100 million (R1.5 billion).

"The signing of Cristiano is the one that has grabbed most attention and I understand that," he was quoted to have said by AS.

"He is a player who has won everything at Real Madrid in the last few years. For the past five years, he has been the best player in the world.

"Marketing questions have played a huge role in this move, but Bayern would not invest so much money on a player who is 33 years old.

"I was surprised that my counterpart Andrea Agnelli decided to get involved in this deal.

"In Italy, it has drawn a lot of praise. From Juventus' point of view the signing makes sense; Italian football has lost ground in recent years.

"With this huge operation, the Italians hope to gain the attention of the football world again."

Ronaldo started training with Juventus this week, and is set to play his first match for the club against Chievo next week Saturday.
