Ronaldo's arrival at Juventus was confirmed on Tuesday, ending his nine-year stay at Real Madrid. "I'm leaving but this shirt, this crest and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am".

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor claimed four Champions League titles during his time in the Spanish capital, and Del Piero hopes his attitude and winning mentality can boost Juve's chances of European success.

During his tenure at the Bernebeau, the five-time Balon d'Or victor was nigh on unstoppable, scoring a staggering 451 goals in 438 appearances for the club.

The winger was converted into an out-and-out striker, scoring an incredible 451 goals for Los Blancos in just 438 matches, smashing the club's previous scoring record of 323 held by Raul.

In 2009, when Cristiano Ronaldo left England to play for Real Madrid, it was a seismic shift in the world of soccer.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Ronaldo has agreed to join Juventus in a staggering £88m deal after club's President Andrea Agnelli traveled to Greece to convince him to join the Turin side.

'Juventus want to win the Champions League, but not only that, to be recognised on the same level as the greatest clubs in the world, ' he told Sky Sport Italia.

This calendar year his goals have come every 70 minutes, he has been the top scorer in the Champions League for each of the past six seasons, and during his nine seasons in La Liga he scored 311 goals, notes the broadcaster.

But one particular message might stand out from all the others after Brazilian great - and fellow contender for the tag of the greatest of all time - Pele, tweeted the Portuguese superstar to congratulate him on this next step.

The deal has also seen a spike in social media activity.

"Juventus have not won the Champions League since the 1995/96 season, but they have reached two finals in the last five years. My respect and gratitude goes out to them all". They may not be Real or Man United, but they are not far behind, and Juve can offer Ronaldo another lorry-load of trophies over the course of his contract. And this last fact is what may have made him head for the shores of Italy.
