Ibra: Ronaldo to Juve 'no challenge'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer to Juventus is ‘not a challenge’.

Ronaldo is on record as describing his move to Juve as a challenge, but Ibrahimovic – while praising Juve for their coup – argued the Bianconeri were already a winning team.

“I didn’t say his transfer wasn’t great,” the LA Galaxy striker told DAZN.

“I said that it wasn’t a challenge to join Juventus. It’s not a challenge to go to one of the best teams in the world.

“Maybe it depends on what you mean by challenge. For me, a challenge is joining a team and taking them far. That’s a challenge.

“In any case it’s a great signing for Italian football because thanks to him, my second home of Serie A has grown.”

The former Milan, Inter and Sweden hitman was then asked who would win the Champions League.

“This year is very open,” added the 37-year-old.

“There isn’t a team who are better than all the others or a favourite. Maybe one of my old teams will win: PSG, Manchester United, Juve or Barcelona.

“Unfortunately Inter have been eliminated, while Milan aren’t there. There are four teams and I hope one of them win it.
