Agnelli: 'Juve target Champions'

Juventus President Andrea Agnelli won’t disguise Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival means “the Champions League must be our objective.”

By investing over €100m plus bonuses, and a reported €30m per year salary, the Bianconeri sent out a statement of intent.

“It’s going to be a difficult year, but one where we must move from dream to objective,” Agnelli told JTV.

“The Champions League must be our objective this season. It has to be the Champions League, it has to be the Scudetto and it has to be the Coppa Italia.

“This year, we really have to set ourselves the target of winning everything. In order to achieve that, Max (Allegri) and his staff know full well, we must work day by day to reap the rewards at the end.

“It’ll be an extremely difficult campaign, full of passion, and I can’t wait for it to start.”
