After seeing how Juventus successfully bought Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid in the summer transfer market, now other teams like Napoli and Inter Milan more likely to compete in the hunt for the Scudetto title, according to the Italian legend, Fabio Cannavaro. In the view of the former Juventus captain, if you want to compete with the Bianconneri, at least Napoli must bring in players of the caliber of Lionel Messi.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world in the last decade, and there is no denying that fact, although the concerned collected five Ballon d’Or during that period. Not surprisingly, when Juventus brought the 33-year-old player from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, the public assumed that the Bianconneri had sealed the Scudetto title this season. Because the former Manchester United star is still sharp, even though he is no longer young.
But actually, before Ronaldo’s arrival, Juventus were superior, dominating Serie A Italy in the last 7 seasons in a row. It’s just that, the arrival of Ronaldo made the Old Lady increasingly dominate, making the chances of Napoli and Inter Milan known as the closest rivals at this time, getting smaller to compete in the hunt for the title. The same thing was said also by Juve and Italian legend Fabio Cannavaro.
For him, Napoli and Inter Milan did have a great determination to end the dominance of Juventus, but in fact the Bianconeri had a greater determination to continue to dominate. Therefore, according to Cannavaro if Napoli want to compete in the hunt for the Scudetto title, they must recruit players of the caliber of Lionel Messi.
“It looks as if Napoli and Inter can undermine the dominance of Juventus, but the Bianconeri seem to have a strong determination to stay ahead. Juve deserves to be rewarded for what they achieve at certain moments. They bring Cristiano Ronaldo when they need to exude confidence and renew the enthusiasm of the squad. ”
“Plus their ambition to go further on the European scene and maintain an invincible aura in Italy. The only way that Napoli can win the Scudetto from Juventus is by bringing Lionel Messi. If so, Juve can give up the [Scudetto] to them, “Cannavaro told Il Mattino.
