And having swapped Madrid for Turin this summer in a £100million move, the Portuguese ace has opened up on that moment for the first time. Now I will play for a fantastic club, one of the biggest clubs in the world.

The 33-year-old said shortly after his move that Juve supporters' reaction to the goal he scored on an acrobatic overhead kick in the Champions League quarterfinal in April taught him they had an appreciation for quality football.

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has aimed a dig at his former side Real Madrid by claiming he is being treated well at his new club.

"I don't have a precise moment when I decided [to join]".

"Why did I choose Juve?" I do not say that it was the [reason for signing] but it helped to see that people appreciated me. It helps when you see the fans and club like you, the feeling is completely different. It was unbelievable. Something like this had never happened to me. "During the years, we played a few times against Juve and I had a special feeling that the Italian supporters like Cristiano".

They spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have. It was not flawless by any means, but who cares? United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly.

Although he seemed ready to quit the club at one point, Allegri retained his position at the helm of Italy's most successful club in recent years and declined the opportunity to manage a side considered the biggest and best in the world.

"I have to say thank you to all of them for the support". It was wonderful, that had never happened to me before. My priority is to do my best, be professional, try to make the team even better. Of course, I still consider Lionel Messi to be the best, as I even named my son after him.

As for his first goal, he said he has not even thought about it.

"I want to be in good shape, help the team, win trophies - that is what I'm looking for". The supporters are the same.
