Brazilian defender Danilo joined the Serie A champions from Manchester City last week in a swap deal that saw Joao Cancelo move to the Etihad.

Danilo is no stranger to playing with five-time Ballon d'Or, as he won two UEFA Champions League titles and LaLiga at Real Madrid.

At his unveiling earlier this week, the full-back revealed he joking asked the Portuguese for the No.7 jersey.

"I spoke to him before coming here," Danilo was quoted as saying by Football Italia.
 
"I said to him that I wanted to take the number seven jersey, but it was already taken.
 
"He spoke very highly of Juventus and to play with him will be an extra motivation. I found a very motivated and happy Ronaldo.
 
"He spoke about the club like a family and this was reassuring to me. It was great to hear such things."
