Juve Star Makes Big Admission Over Ronaldo Transfer

One of Juventus' longest-serving players has revealed how he reacted when he first found out the Italian giants were linked with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

'Juventus Signing Ronaldo Is Propaganda Move!'

Giorgio Chiellini, who has been a Bianconeri player for 13 years now, has represented the club on 472 occasions already, but has not lost his desire for Juve to keep on growing as a team.

The defender has now admitted that when he first heard speculation about Ronaldo's switch to Juve, he immediately dismissed the idea.

"(The first time I heard about Ronaldo,) I said to my friends, 'Nah, it's impossible,'" Chiellini told ESPN.

"After one day, (I thought) maybe it is possible.

"With our manager, with our director... it's a reality. Juventus is growing... year after year, and we need a champion like Cristiano.

"We are excited, we are ready to work with him; all the parts of the club, the players, the marketing manager, the director, are ready to improve with Cristiano and we hope he can help us to achieve our target."
