Former Manchester United star and Wales head coach, Ryan Giggs, has disclosed that Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi made Cristiano Ronaldo sign for Juventus.
Ronaldo had signed a €115m deal with Juventus.
Speaking with ITV, Giggs said Ronaldo was obsessed with being better than Lionel Messi.
He said: “I’m surprised that he would leave Real Madrid and go to Italy.
“I think it’s a big challenge for him but he’s going to a huge club. Having that on your CV… Real Madrid, Man United and Juventus. It’s some CV.
“He’s obsessed with being better than Messi. He has that now that: ‘I did it in England,
“‘I did it in Spain, I’m going to do it in Italy… and I did it with Portugal’.
“So maybe that will be his argument when people ask: ‘Is Ronaldo better than Messi?’.”
