Juventus’ sensational acquisition of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid has landed them one of the greatest goalscorers in the game’s history.
Fuelled by his renowned drive for success, the superstar winger-turned-striker has shattered records in Spanish and European football following his mega-money move from Manchester United in 2009.
And with a nine-season stint at Los Blancos now behind him, Portugal’s most prolific product will set about stamping his legacy on Serie A.
Here are just some of the stunning figures that capture the impact Ronaldo has had in his career to date, and could yet have at his new home.
