But, did you know that, in fact the former Manchester United star has completed his move to Turin before the 4-year tournament takes place? Yes, this was revealed by the striker, Alvaro Morata.
As is known, the football public was shocked by the transfer of Portugal’s mega star, Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer transfer market this year. This 33-year-old player finally ended the 9 years of career he has spent with Real Madrid over the past 9 years.
Many parties were surprised by Ronaldo’s decision to leave Real Madrid and join Juventus. These include Chelsea’s mainstay striker who is a former Real Madrid and Juventus player, Alvaro Morata. The Spaniard admitted he was shocked Ronaldo arrived in Turin, but he had known since before the 2018 World Cup was held.
“To be honest I don’t trust this transfer. I think Ronaldo will extend his contract in Madrid. Until finally I met with the Juventus’ director. They said: “Do you know who came to Juventus?” I can’t believe they told me before this transfer took place. My parents don’t want to believe, but I even know before the 2018 World Cup!”
“Yes, at least Ronaldo left Madrid to move to another spectacular club. Madrid and Juventus are similar, because they are two great clubs. When I played there a few years ago, Juventus were one of the best tactics in the world. Then now plus Ronaldo [who will] start scoring goals. Every season everyone says he will not score goals, but finally collects 50 goals at the end of the season.” said Morata, as quoted by Cadena Ser.
Cristiano Ronaldo agreed on a 4-year contract at Juventus with a salary of 30 million Euros per season.
