Alves: 'Ronaldo triumph at Juve'

Portugal international Bruno Alves is confident Cristiano Ronaldo will “triumph again at Juventus” after leaving Real Madrid.

Multiple sources expect the transfer to go through for €100m plus around €20-25m in commission for agent Jorge Mendes, while the player has agreed a contract worth €30m net per year.

“Cristiano Ronaldo will triumph again at Juventus,” Glasgow Rangers defender Alves told Portuguese paper O Jogo.

“There is no league where he cannot be successful. He has already proved that he can win in any country and Italy is no different.

“I am cheering him on, because Ronaldo is a testimonial for Portugal in the world. I was at his side during so many battles for 12 years and I know how much he can motivate himself. That’s important when accepting a new challenge.”
