Revealed: Ronaldo's Staggering Impact On Juventus & Serie A Football

Cristiano Ronaldo's impact following his €100 million (R1.53 billion) move to Juventus has been felt on the pitch, but a new in-depth analysis has now also revealed that he is turning out  to be a massive success off the pitch.
 
 
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has hit the ground running since arriving in Turin in July 2018, finding the back of the net on 21 occasions, while registering 12 assists in 32 games played across all competitions for the Bianconeri.
 
While Ronaldo's exploits on-the-field were largely expected, due to his incredible work ethic and talent, the financial impact of his move to Italy have also greatly benefited all parties involved. 
 
According to Marca, after Ronaldo's unveiling in Turin, the Juventus first-team kit had proven to be such a hit that it sold out within a month. In addition, Adidas Spain revealed that orders for Ronaldo's new team's jersey were on the rise.
 
The 34-year-old, who is the most followed person on Instagram with 155 million followers, has had a great impact on Juventus' various social media platforms. 
 
According to a study carried out by the club, the Serie A outfit's Instagram account grew by ten million followers, their Twitter account received 600,000 new users and the official Facebook page was liked by more than three million new users.
 
 
Ronaldo has, however, not only had an impact on Juventus' off-pitch performance. According to stadiapostcards, attendance across all Serie A games has increased by more than 2%, while the attendance at Ronaldo's former home ground, the Santiago Bernabeu, has dropped from 65,027 to 62,340 on average.
 
Do you think Ronaldo is the most marketable footballer in the history of the game? If not, who is? Let us now in the comments section below.
