Pirlo Thrilled With Juve's Ronaldo Signing

Former Juventus superstar Andrea Pirlo has expressed his opinion on the Italian club's signing of five-time Ballon d'Or winner and 2018 The Best FIFA Men's Player nominee Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Highest-Paid Players At Juve After Ronaldo Deal

The Portuguese attacker became the Bianconeri's record signing when he put pen to paper on a contract with the club two weeks ago, after nine successful years at Real Madrid.

Ronaldo, who was named among the 10 candidates for The Best FIFA Men's Player award for 2018 on Tuesday, has won the UEFA Champions League five times in his career, and it is this experience Pirlo feels will benefit Juve.  

"Cristiano Ronaldo can bring that something extra, which Juventus need," he told Sky Sports Italia.

"I'm happy that a great champion has joined Juve. Buying a player like him doesn't win you the Champions League alone, but you get a lot closer to it.

"Ronaldo is a player who shifts balances and can help Juventus win the Champions League.

"He's a top player, he'll make the difference and we'll see something beautiful."
