Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba has reacted to Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo’s move from Real Madrid to Juventus.
Ronaldo is set to join the Serie A champions, after they agreed a stunning €112million deal with Real Madrid on Tuesday.
Juventus have announced that Ronaldo will be officially unveiled as their player on Monday.
However, Drogba has described Ronaldo’s move from La Liga to Serie A as exciting and perfect.
In an interview with La Stampa, Drogba said: “Amazed by Ronaldo’s transition from Real Madrid to Juventus? Not even a bit. It is perfect, exciting, so right that I was going to do it. ”
“I was a step away from Italy: I already thought I was there, the details were missing and then everything was evaporated and you’re not asking me the team, it’s useless to reopen the chapter.
“Even there was more than an offer and I was very interested so I understand perfectly Ronaldo.
“Will the transition from the La Liga to Serie A be brutal? Many say he should have stayed where he was and maybe for any other 33-year-old champion it would make sense.”
“Real is a giant team, with ambitions always at the highest levels, but he is one that feeds on motivations and above all at that age new challenges are needed.”
